Chris King is Chris King's first integrated headset based on the know-how of manufacturing high quality headsets based on high-performance bearings that have been manufactured in-house for more than 40 years. DropSet ™ Was announced.
The project was designed from scratch, starting with testing to analyze the in-use forces of integrated headsets and press-fit headsets and discover unique issues that need to be addressed.
The most demanding challenge to overcome is that the integrated headset is set in the frame without being press-fitted. If the bearings are not set firmly, the bearings will move and the preload will be lost rapidly. As the preload decreases, the load on the bearings increases, leading to damage and failure.
Therefore, Chris King's original GripLock ™ This is where the system comes in. Born after years of trial and error by Chris King, this system is a patented design that secures the fork steerer with its own system. This GripLock ™ system ensures that DropSet ™ maintains a much better preload than its competitors and is not adversely affected by impacts from any road surface or bearings such as sudden braking.
More notably, DropSet ™ offers steel and ceramic bearings to choose from. This is the first Chris King headset Ceramic bearing headset Will be released. Ceramic bearings have excellent wear resistance and rolling performance, and are even more durable than traditional in-house manufactured steel bearings, reducing maintenance and extending the life of your headset.
