The Chris King NoThreadSet Tapered headset combines maximal durability, silky-smoothness and unrivalled longevity with a service life like no other. Handcrafted in the USA, this is the go-to headset for world-class athletes and discerning amateurs alike – perfect for tapered headtubes. Tour winners, world champions and record-breaking endurance athletes have all benefitted from NoThreadSet Tapered SV. Perfectly primed for peak performance whilst also sturdy enough to outlast the bike you fit it to, this is a truly remarkable feat of engineering, honed over several decades from humble beginnings.

The meticulous care and attention invested into the production of each and every NoThreadSet Tapered SV reflects Chris King’s lasting commitment to quality and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Bike disciplines, trends and fashions change but you’ll never go amiss with a NoThreadSet Tapered SV.

Every single NoThreadSet Tapered SV is engineered, manufactured and assembled in-house at Chris King’s HQ in Portland, Oregon. Fully serviceable and with a 10-year warranty, you can be confident that you’re investing in an elite performance product that has been built to last.

Chris King’s legendary steel bearings and heat-treated, surgical-grade steel races not only form a perfectly integrated system but actually become smoother as they burnish with use – wearing in, rather than wearing out. In contrast to many other manufacturers, Chris King has complete control over every aspect of production, meaning that they can make bearings in-house to a specification that simply wouldn’t be achieved otherwise.

An innovative GripLock retention system utilised in the NoThreadSet Tapered SV isolates forces normally exerted on your steerer tube, protecting it from fatigue and wear. If you want to care for your frame, particularly carbon and non-standard material constructions, the NoThreadSet Tapered SV is a solid choice. The GripLock system also reduces the chance of your headset coming out of adjustment, even after repeated high-impact riding.

The NoThreadSet SV is often emulated but never matched in durability, lasting quality and ultra-smooth functioning.

Recently they organised a pub quiz fund raiser which raised them enough money to buy not one, but TWO new work stands, we were stoked to be able to help them attain a bargain price and order these in for them.
