Chris King Dropset 3 - Integrated Headset

Since being founded in 1976, Chris King has become one of the most esteemed names in cycling thanks to the extraordinary quality, durability and performance of its components. The saying goes, " Chris King bearings wear in, not out..."

Having made unbeatable headsets for over 40 years, Chris King have finally overcome the challenges of designing an integrated headset that meets the exceptional standards required to make it worthy of wearing the name.

The tried and tested GripLock™ - a patented design that preloads the headset independently of clamping onto the steerer - is the breakthrough that allows the Chris King Dropset to retain preload far better than the competition and remain impervious to the ill effects of load spikes from large hits and heavy braking. This means smoother steering, no more creaking, and a longer lasting headset.

The IS41/28.6 Upper and IS52/40 Lower are compatible with most Santa Cruz Bicycles that encorporate an integrated headset, as well as many others. Available in 9 anodised colours, the Chris King Dropset is a perfect addition to your ride
