Fit and forget. Chris King make headsets of unparalleled quality, setting the industry benchmark. Their threadless headset is simple, timeless and beautifully made with a ten year bearing guarantee thanks to surgical grade stainless steel cartridge style bearings, every one of which is made in-house and hand checked. Fully serviceable, Chris King headsets have been ridden to victory in both off-road gravity disciplines and the Tour de France alike, showing their true quality.

Chris King headsets now feature the Sotto Voce branding, meaning literally 'soft voice'. This new understated branding of the headsets will subtly compliment any bike. The traditional stronger graphics are still available - choose the 'Classic Black' sub option.

Special Edition Pink - Pretty and Strong: Since 2004, when you order a limited edition Pink Chris King headset, Chris King donate a portion of that sale to an affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure. This international organisation is a foundation dedicated to eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

Special Edition Rasta - Wheels4Life: Established by Hans Rey, the not-for-profit charity Wheels4Life provides bicycles to people in developing nations like Uganda. With 90-95% of all donations going towards buying bikes, you can be sure the donation Chris King make when you buy a Rasta headset will help those in developing nations gain freedom and expand their horizons through the power of two wheels.
