1 1/8 Version

The Good:

Gets the job done with minimal servicing.

The Bad:

...catastrophic failure of the bottom cup.
Super shady warranty fine-print.
They have no contact number for customer service, and they won't seem to respond to the bike shop that I am dealing with.

Overall Review:

For a headset whose name includes adjectives such as "xtreme" and "pro", the thing just didn't stand up to abuse like I thought it would. It has a 10 year warranty if you never use it for aggressive riding or competition. What the hell? If they stood behind their product and simply replaced it, this would have been a completely different story.

Orbit Extreme Pro 1.5R

The Good:

Seamless installation, no surprises. Deep cup insertion - no rocking ever, no ovalized head tubes. The bearings are huge, so no worries for huckers. Looks like it came out of the Lockheed test facility.

The Bad:


Overall Review:

Excellent headset, truly quality product from a truly quality company that is great to work with!
