    Strengths:    Nice and rigid stuff

    Weaknesses:    This headset have the worst bearng I've ever seen! Or if it's not the bearings, maybe it's the seals but water can easily comes in this headset. It will be a good headset if yo're living in Greece o in a desert but definitively not if the weather is sometimes rainy in your country.
    I'm certainly going to buy a Chris King!

    Bottom Line:   
    Good headset... except if you often ride in muddy and wet places!

    Strengths:    super strong bearings,extra seals in both caps: nothing can get into the frame.

    Weaknesses:    only in black,but who cares!

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm tired to see parts breaking after a few days or weeks, and here in Greece we don't have technical support like the mtbikers in the USA,the UK or France,so we have to wait sometimes for months to get these and test them to find wich will suit our needs and will last longer.Anyway,the Twister Xc is the perfect headset,believe me.
