American Classic American Classic Headsets Headset

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

The American Classic ultra-light headset is unique in that the o-rings in the top cap center it on the steerer tube, independent of downward force. This allows bearing adjustment without bearing down load. The headset features angular contact bearings which support the side-to-side load and the up-and-down load.

    Strengths:    this is for the 1 1/8th threadless @ 77grams

    very light clean looking, sealed bearings mean low maint. not flashy but looks good. very smooth and yeah very light.

    Weaknesses:    none that i have experianced

    Bottom Line:   
    its cheaper the other headsets with higher bling factor and weighs less, i see the sealed bearings as an advantage but im sure there are others who would disagree. either way im not all about the blink and this headset does its job for a fair price. if the bearings do go they should be cheap and easy to replace..
