Strengths:    Light, set and forget, good bearings

Weaknesses:    Lacks second set of seals (other than the bearing seals)

Bottom Line:   
I've used two of these over the past 4 years. The first was a OEM spec on a Jamis and the second I ordered on E-bay to replace the POS stock headset on my Access XCL 9r. Both have been set and forget, never coming loose and never binding. they don't have a second set of seals so there is a small gap between the bearing cup and the races. The bearings must be well sealed because they have survived several PNW winters with no issues. The bearings are the same as the Cane Creek so replacements will be simple if needed.
