The Imperator Pro is the small variant of the Imperator Super Pro. Using CNC’d 7075-T6 aluminium construction means great strength and weight. We’ve used high quality taper-roller bearings which excel for durability and are used as standard in many other products. We’ve added additional sealing to protect the open bearing construction from dirt ingress. The Imperator Pro is a favorite with many riders due to its low overall stack height, low weight, and durable taper-roller bearings. Included with the headset are; installation aid for the fork crown race, headset cap, bolt and star fangled nut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Light, nice looking, reliable
Installation is working fine. Have this headset 3 times already. Crown race can be bought as an spare part. Lightweight, good working and looking headset. Seals are not the best - but that allows to maintain the bearings. There is a new LOT no around. The bearing cups were fixed in the alumnium housing in LOT2007. In the new LOT the cups are loose - had no issue with that. Was just wondering when I installed it.

to be honest mate, the products are as good as the rider or technician who fit it!
if you're stacker is becoming loose it is most likley because you havnt tightend you're side bolts in the stem sufficiently, there is no need to slate this headset unless it has actually broken, which in this particulare headsets case is very unlikely i rate it a good 4star its taken a hell of a beating and stands out from alot of other headsets in red! i've ownd diabolous/pig dh pro/chris king and hope headsets and i'd say it ranked well withing range but not as smooth as the chris king and hope ones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous not worth £30
thought this headset would be the dogs, but it has failed miserably.
continually having to re-adjust as it go's so slack so soon. eventually i had to tighten it too a point where the steering was too stiff.it ended up marking my steerer tube!
going to bin it
waste of £30!
