is more to our carbon headsets than their exceptional good looks. From
top to bottom, Box One Carbon Headsets have been designed to perform.
Each unit features a custom CNC-machined alloy top cap in the shape of
the Box logo with cut outs to reduce weight. At the center of the top
cap is an anodized aluminum bolt that threads into a gold anodized
aluminum expander plug. This expander eliminates the need for a star nut
and works with all 1 1/8” steerer tubes—even carbon fiber steerer
tubes. The top bearing cover is crafted from carbon fiber, which not
only adds style, but helps to shave weight. At the heart of the headset
are two super-smooth, titanium-nitride coated, sealed, 45×45 bearings.
The titanium coating results in a low friction coefficient, increased
corrosion resistance and smoother rolling bearings. A split crown race
makes installation and removal from forks super easy. Box 1.5″ headsets
are designed solely for tapered frames and forks, like the new X5 fork.
