Chris King Precision Components was one of the first bicycle component manufacturers to offer a threadless headset. The modular design of the headset Chris developed in 1976 served as a platform for him to transform the concept of threadless into one of the most iconic pieces in the cycling universe. The Chris King NoThreadSet is simple yet without limitation. It is equally appropriate on road or mountain bikes. It has been ridden to mountain bike world titles in both endurance and gravity disciplines and has crossed the finish line under yellow at the Tour de France.
The NoThreadSet features aluminium cups, bearing cap, and stemcap built around our renowned stainless steel sealed bearings. Each NoThreadSet includes a stainless steel baseplate and our custom starnut with bolt.
Chris King Headsets:
User serviceable and likely to outlast a few frames.
Chris King designed the first sealed bearing headset in 1976. Many years later, the King headset remains a benchmark for quality. No other bicycle component can claim the precision, performance and absolute reliability of a Chris King headset.
At Chris King Precision Components, we manufacture each headset in our own facility to exacting standards, using quality-at-the-source methods to minimise waste. Even the sealed, cartridge style bearings are made in-house and are hand-checked.
We believe this component so well represents us that we offer a 10-year warranty on all models.

"There are some products that you aspire to own and for me the Chris King headset is one of them. It has heritage, it is quality and it works. The 10 year guarantee is nice to have, but is rarely (if ever) needed. Treat yourself."
