Description: A range of 4 headsets is now available. All use common parts
(bearings, taper rings, crown race, taper ring cover) with just
the cup or seat changing dependant on type of fitting.
To run alongside the conventional 1 1/8" threadless
headset, this year also see's an integrated (no cups, seats to
fit inside the frame) an integral (low stack cups) and a 1.5"-
1 1/8" step down.
For more technical information, sizing and descriptions
please consult the technical brochure or website.
The bearings themselves are STAINLESS STEEL and
are replaceable. The cups, taper ring and crown race
(which is now split for easy installation and removal)
are all machined aluminium. All headsets come
complete with the Hed Doctor, and the 1.5" step down
with a stainless steel bolt version. Sealing is achieved
through an adjustable taper ring cover and integrated
rubber seal. The bearings also incorporate their own sealing,
and being made from stainless steel resist corrosion and it's
by products much better than a conventional steel bearing.
The conventional 1 1/8" headset is available in the 6
standard colours - red, blue, silver, black, gold and gunsmoke,
whilst the other 3 models are available in black only.
*The 1.5" stepdown has a revised lower cup assembly which
drops the crown of the fork down by 10mm, improving
clearance between forks and down tubes. An aftermarket
crown race is also available which has 3mm of extra height
built into it, which again can be used to help with clearance
issues. Call the sales team for more information.
