MAXhit Zero Stack Headsets

Traditionally, zero stack headsets use a bearing cup pressed into the frame, with a full bearing assembly inside. MAXhit ditches the extra layers of metal, and the bearings roll directly on the cup.

The larger balls are nested in deeper than normal bearing race grooves, which increases surface area and thus, enhances durability and performance.
