Super Smooth

The last headset you will ever need. Super smooth and maintenance free. Lots of sizes to choose from to fit any bike. I've been using Chris King headsets for years and have no plans of stopping.

I've put it through the wringer

Really dig this thing. Well worth its price if it's piqued your interested at all. I have this on a couple different bikes and haven't had any complaints so far. GripLock seems to be doing its thing very well, and I think I'll be sticking with these for the future.
