Adorn your XC mobile with some gorgeous anodized 7075 aluminum with a Loaded Precision AMXC 1 1/8" (1.125) headset. Dual Angular Full Complement contact bearings seal out moisture, muck, and corrosion while providing you the action and response that you'll notice in the hairiest situations. Light and threadless, this headset is also about as tough as they come.
Lightweight 7075 aluminum is tough and corrosion resistant

Comments about Loaded Precision AMXC 1 1/8-in Headset:
A good headset. Seems like smooth cartridge sealed bearings (same) for top and bottom. Main problem is that the bottom race is split ring (alloy) that you just slide onto fork with your fingers! No need for race set tool on this one. Split ring seats well with the included sealed bearing, but hey, it is a split ring with small gap, and time will tell for any wobbles or wear-out. I bought the silver model, and I assume all other colors also have this split ring race. And because of the excess 8-sided alloy parts, it is heavier than it needs to be. 8-sided things don't have any need to turn like the old threaded headsets, so unsure why they made them 8-sided, other than to increase the weight of this HS? It fits well on my intended frame a steel Schwinn LeTour 2010 that I bought at Nashbar closeout, and I am happy with it, but because of the split ring alloy bottom race, I cannot recommend it.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
