Token Tiramic headset review

The brand new Tiramic is unashamedly modelled on the Chris King headset (see opposite), but it takes a different approach to the fit-and-forget philosophy.

The brand new Tiramic is unashamedly modelled on the Chris King headset, but it takes a different approach to the fit-and-forget philosophy. It uses lighter materials in the shape of ceramic balls that are immensely tough, smooth-running and lighter than steel, along with titanium nitrided cups. These bearings are holding up well to everything we’ve been able to throw at them on a cyclo-cross bike. Stack height is 29mm, and they’re only available in 1 1/8in.
