The beauty of this product lies in its duality - it acts as both a headset and a reducer. If you have a bike that has a 1.5" headtube and you want to use a standard 1 1/8" fork/steerer tube, this one product creates compatibility and takes care the issue. The Orbit reducer headset uses 1.5" bearings but features a unique 1 1/8" inner diameter sleeve to allow a smaller diameter fork steerer tube to be used. For riders who want a 1 1/8" fork and have the ability to upgrade to an 1.5" fork later this is a great option.
Quality construction and bearings are built with tight tolerances to withstand the rigors of offroad riding and abuse. Black anodized finish with low-key graphics round out the package.
