The Chris King DropSet 2 42/52 Headset is a premium quality upgrade that uses precision milled bearings and races for superb smoothness and longevity.

The GripLock® retention design overcomes the issues that integrated headsets can suffer from by retaining the necessary preload so that the headset remains smooth and quiet.

Chris King DropSet 2 42/52 Headset

The DropSet 2 42/52 Headset might just be the ultimate integrated headset upgrade, with Chris King’s renowned precision-made bearings ensuring smooth running and a very long life. Integrated headsets can suffer from premature wear and creaking as the races aren’t held in cups. The GripLock® retention design separates the clamping force and the preload force, allowing the clamp to be torqued to an exact specification, which keeps the preload tension even under the kind of forces exacted by heavy braking or hard hits.
