FSA Pig DH Pro HeadsetPig DH Pro. The ultimate of DH headsets. Forged chromoly lower cup and 6061/T6 upper cup with industrial cartridge sealed bearings. Gyro compatible, laser etched top cap, forged chromoly crown race, and TH brand 36 degree micro angular contact upper bearings.
The Pig is one of the best headset ever. It's cheap, tough, easy to maintain, and ubiquitous. I can't count the number of times I've slapped a Pig on a bike and never saw a headset issue again.
Have put this on 3 different bikes now without issues. It is somewhat heavy and oversized, but that's the idea. Its tough!
Replaced my old wobbleing headset and now its tight. easy install on my triple crown. no loose bearings. make sure you have spacers if your changing the headset size at all.
I was trying to find a heavy duty headset for my XC bike and ended up with this in my cart. Upon arrival, I because worried by how large the lower cup and bearing were but it fit against the race quite nicely and only looks a little silly upon very close inspection. Need I remind you, this in on an XC bike and fork and this is a headset meant for a DH bike. Anyways, though it's a little heavy for XC, the bearing turn smooth and I haven't had any issues yet. I took note of it's heavy duty construction when I was installing it so I have no fears of it wearing out any time soon.
