Headset: Ahead, tapered, semi-integrated? Explaining the subject

Simply explained, the headset is the part through which the handlebars, stem and forks are turned, using this you are able to turn or steer the bike. Things are unfortunately not so simple, because there are many different types of headsets for bikes. From a technical perspective the headset consists of the following: Crown race at the bottom, ball bearings and bottom cup, then a top cup and bearings as well as a star fangled nut a clamping mechanism. Here we will give a short explanation of some of the different types of headsets:

1. The threaded headset

Example: Ritchey Logic Headset 1 1/8 Inch black (EC34/28.6-26|EC34/30) That is old school, for this you need a bike fork with threaded steerer tube, these are hard to find these days. The headset is locked using the upper cup and locking nut and a lot of finger sensitivity and tightened but not too tight and not too loose. Threaded headsets are available in different diameters 1 inch and 1 1/8 inch mostly with the name "Classic".
The bearing cups are on the outside and are pressed in the head tube, these are referred to as "EC" = External Cup (the outer cup). If you are using a threaded headset then you also need to insert a quill stem that is wedged into the fork.

2. Todays most widespread headset: The Ahead

Beispiel: Ritchey WCS Headset 1 Inch black (EC30/25.4|EC30/26)The Ahead headset is the most used representative of the threadless headsets. The assembly is similar to that of threaded headsets, the difference being that the fork has no thread. The nut is found directly in the steerer tube of the fork and is referred to as the star fangled nut or star nut. The star nut has the function of a nut, that with the help of star-shaped blades (or an expander for carbon fibre forks) is wedged into the steerer tube. In order to adjust your a-head headset you need an ahead stem and an ahead cap. The bearing cups are here also on the outside (EC) and pressed against the steering tube. Again there are different diameters: 1 inch, 1 1/8 inch, 1 1/2 inch or conical forms, these are referred to as tapered.

3. Then there are the integrated (IS) and the semi-integrated headsets (ZS) as well:

Example: Ritchey WCS Headset 1 1/8 Inch black (IS42/28.6|IS42/30) With the integrated headset the bearing cups are placed loosely at either end of the head tube. They come as either integrated or as fully integrated and are recognisable by the abbreviation (IS). The advantage is that installation and changing the bearings is possible without using special tools. The disadvantage is that damaging the steering tube (e.g. through an accident or fall) can lead to the bearing cups being hard to change. Because these are part of the bike frame. You can find here the diameters 1 1/8 inch, 1 1/2 inch or tapered*.

Example: Ritchey WCS Headset1 1/8 Inch black (ZS44/28.6|ZS44/30)In the case of a semi-integrated headset one immediately notices on the bike frame, that the head tube appears to be especially thick. This is easy to explain, because the bearing cups are pressed into the head tube and the headset disappears so to speak into the head tube. This setup is referred to as a Zero Stack (ZS). The advantage is that the fork and the stem are closer to the head tube and allow for a flatter construction. Tightening occurs like with ahead stem with the star nut, cap and stem. These diameters are available with the semi-integrated headset: 1 1/8 inch, 1 1/2 inch or tapered*.

*) the parameters for the headset are always determined by the frame A mixed headset, at the top 1 1/8" and bottom 1 1/2 inch is for forks that have a tapered fork steerer tube in which the tube is thicker at the bottom (1 1/2 ") compared with the top (1 1/8 "), so conical.

The "Standardized Headset Identification System"(S.H.I.S)

The S.H.I.S. was jointly formed by a number of manufacturers, amongst whom were Race Face, Ritchey as well as Cane Creek. The intention was to agree upon a unified description of headsets. Since then a simple and at the same time reliable code for headsets helps to identify the right type. For example (ZS44/28.6|ZS44/30):
Bearing cup at the top: The two letters at the beginning are ZS (semi-integrated), followed by the diameter of the steering tube 44mm and the following numbers give the size of the inner diameter of the bearing, here 28.6 mm. If for the upper part and the lower part of the headset measures are provided, then they will have the above mentioned three identification patterns to give a complete description. In other words, the bottom bearing cup is in our example semi-integrated (ZS) with a 44mm diameter steering tube and a 30mm bearing inner diameter.
