Quality product. And with the warranty, it is a good investment. Worth spending a little more for that.

Chris King has and will continue to manufacture great cycling products that are easy to maintain and keep it's appeal and value throughout the many years of owning it. I always revert back to going with their hubs and headsets.

The limited production colors are great!

Chris King in my opinion and experience is synonymous with quality. It's nice to be able to not have to think about certain parts of your bike and focus on your ride.

The king of headsets

I mean really, how often do you turn your handlebars on your bike. If you are like me, often. Theres no straight path in life. King headsets arent just about cool colors, theyre about taking an essential component and making it bomb proof. Blindfolded, you can feel the difference between Chris King and much cheaper headsets.
