Intense Tapered Headset

The Intense Tapered Headset is designed and used by Intense on their own bikes so it says a lot for their performance and durability. This is a tapered conversion headset that will fit frames with a 44mm top and 49mm bottom headtube and that usually take straight steerers.

With this design the bearings sit outside the headtube and allow you to run forks with a tapered 1.1/8" to 1.5" steerer.

This will not work with frames that are designed to run integrated bearings.
