Hope Sealed Headset


Sold out

- Hope's top quality sealed cartridge bearing headset is CNC machined in the UK from 2014 aluminium alloy.
- Stainless steel bearings and races, protected from all conditions with O-ring seals in the cups, ensuring years of maintenance-free service.
- Fits standard 1 1/8" head tubes.
- New split top and bottom wedges ensure easy installation and removal, and keep the headset nice and tight.
- Available in various colours, any no longer listed are discontinued.
- Comes with free colour-matched Hope Hed Doctor (RRP 15 when sold separately).
- Stack height: 28mm
- Weight: 119g (including top cap and Hed Doctor).

The three shims pictured are to set the pre-load of the seal on the top cap. More washers gives a more free-running headset, whereas subtracting washers offers better sealing... clever!



What is the diameter of the hope head doctor?Can it fit on an inspired element steerer tube? Thanks, Themis!

Hi - It's around 25mm, it cannot fit on any steerer tube that is aluminium. Thanks, Adam


Does this headset fit and work with the echo lite 2011 frame, will I need any extra parts and if not what headset would you recommend. Thanx

Hi Mitch - This headset should fit fine in an Echo Lite frame. Thanks, Mark


What is this used for?

Hi Alex - Headsets are used to help mount your fork to your frame and allow you to steer your bike. Thanks, Mark


does this have a greater insert length than a king?

Reply from TartyBikes on 19/02/2014

Hi Matt - thanks for your question. Unless otherwise noted, headsets all have very nearly the same length insert. Why do you want to know? Is there a specific issue you are having that you are trying to overcome? If that is the case, let us know the issue in an email (tartybikes@gmail.com) and we'll do our best to help you find a solution. Thanks, Flipp.

Hello, can I use this headset with the Ozonys Iron frame (oil slick color)? Thanks.

Posted by Sabrine Sehili on 02/02/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/02/2016

Hi Sabrine - This should fit your Iron frame fine, as would any of the headsets in our 'Standard Headsets' category. Thanks, Mark

Hi, I read somewhere that it is necessary to buy a top cap to barspin (because of the brake hose), could you give some advice to choose a top cap that is compatible with this headset on my Ozonys Iron frame/fork? Thank you very much~

Hi Sabrine - As we don't stock the Iron framekit it's difficult to say. I believe you would need to buy something like the Gusset Hollow Star Nut Kit (Quick find code: 011013). This would allow you to route your hose through your steerer tube. You could also use any headset you like - headsets don't really require a specific top cap. Thanks, Mark

hope headset

Posted by David on 22/04/2011

Good headset, bearings bedded very quickly. Lining up the Hope logos on the cups was a bum because it says hope three times so you notice every mm out it is but thats just aesthetic anyway.



Posted by Nicolas on 01/11/2012

Maybe the best looking headset ever? It just feel so great ! Of caurse it's hope, it cost alote but it still stays one of the best headset out there! I got mine in blue, the color scheme is just amazing with all of my other blue hope parts! A must buy for bike enthusiast!
