Precision-engineered to the most exacting of tolerances to deliver optimum performance and long life in harsh riding conditions.

The latest generation of Warhead MTB headsets have been revised, improved and expanded for optimum fit, sealing and performance as well as compatibility with a wide range of fork and frame standards.

Featuring sealed angular contact bearings, alloy crown races and upper and lower bearing cups CNC-machined from proprietary aluminium, the Warhead headset offers the optimum balance of light weight, strength and durability for performance across all riding disciplines.

The Warhead is available in a range of options to cover multiple fork/headtube configurations, including full range of Standard Steerer (SS – 1-1/8”), Tapered Steerer (TS - 1-1/8” to 1.5”) and Oversize Steerer (OS – 1.5”) combinations. Internal and external cup options also available including zero stack versions with internal top and bottom cups.

New additions for 2013 include a ceramic bearing option for all units in the range, a light weight Trail (TR) headset, two new taper models (44-56mm for standard and taper forks) and a new AS1 model with 1 degree internal angle adjustment for 1.5” head tubes.

All models feature a super tough black hard anodised finish, with laser-etched graphics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits Cannondale 1.5 head tube Used to convert the straight 1.5" headtube on my 2011 Cannondale trail sl2 29er to fit a tapered steerer. Don't forget to purchase a new stem and spacers! Sealed cartridge bearings are a bonus compared to the stock headset. Just waiting for the trails to dry up and then we'll see how well it holds up to me stopping at any drop off more than 2" - you know you have to pay for healthcare on this side of the pond :( 13 August 2014

The Mega TR runs a straight 44mm headtube, so to fit a tapered steerer you need the 44IETS
