Rated 4 out of 5 by wolfinthewind fragile allen bolt
well made bearing and housing ,but the allen bolt used to tighten is a mite fragile. a quailty allen key should be used and absolute engagement is required when trying to achieve torque values , otherwise cosmetic damge occurs which will ruin the look of the item .

Had this fitted recently to my gt chucker frame and it feels smooth as well as solid and for the price its amazing money for great quality as well as the fact it has sealed bearing the only other headset that will fit my frame is a hope and chris king and this one is the same quality as them but way cheaper.

Having recently replaced my dodgy old headset that was on the way out with this offering from FSA I can only say wow, what a difference. A doddle to fit I was really surprised at how much lighter my steering was, in fact I sometimes only need to drop a shoulder or shift my weight to corner, the steering takes no effort at all with my RS Reba duel air forks and XT/Mavic 717 wheels. The Orbit looks and feels rock solid but works in a truely sensitive fashion. First class and a total bargain at the price.

Just fitted this headset this afternoon and took the bike out for a run in the evening and wow... this is a top value for money product. It fitted like a glove and feels supersmooth and the steering is so much lighter, it's going to take a couple of rides to get used to it (and I already had light forks and wheels), but it's certainly made a big difference and it feels absolutely solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Wow what a difference this unit makes on my 2007 GT Avalanche, 100 times better than the dodgy Ritchey headset that it replaces. Front end braking is much more improved as I now don't have any moevement in the head tube. Gr8 Headset, can't fault it!
