Chris King Spacers kit
Spacers are an important link in properly setting up your headset. While used to adjust the height of your stem, they transfer important alignment from the bottom of your stem to the top of the headset. Lacking exactness, there will be little you can do to achieve and maintain proper adjustment.
Chris King precision headset spacers are made to the same exacting standards as their headsets. Each spacer is lathe-cut from high-grade aluminum bar stock in a single operation ensuring exactness of size, concentricity, and parallel surfaces. Many of the other headset spacers available in the market are saw-cut from a tube resulting in variances of these all-important tolerances. This is especially true with the now popular carbon fiber headset spacer. Fashionable? Yes. Precision? Questionable.
In addition to sizing variances, carbon fiber has poor qualities in compression, which is what it is subject to during adjustment and from trail forces as the bicycle is ridden. Chris King believe that this is an impractical material to specify spacers to be made from when their 3mm spacer weighs just 2.5 grams by the way.
Chris King Precision Components headset spacers are available in diameters of 1 1/8”, for other sizes please contact your local bike shop or BAVABICI.
Spacers are available as a 4-piece kit
(One each of 3, 6, 12, & 25mm)
