A headset is a necessary part in all scooters and is mounted in the fronttube/headtube on the deck. With the headset mounted correctly the bar can spin freely.
The best available headset comes with concave, closed bearings. These are more impact resistant.
There are threaded and threadless headsets. To use a threadless headset you must use a compression system (read more).
• Using a threadless headset (recommended by Victory SS) you also have to use a threadless fork.
• Using a threaded headset you have to use a threaded fork.
Most highend headsets are threadless. These are separated into 2 categories, see illustration:
Non integrated headsets fit most decks and have to be knocked down like we show in our video.
Integrated headsets only fit integrated decks, this is a tool free installation.
About the Headset type
The type of the headset to be used is determined by the type of the headtube of the deck. Integrated headtubes have built-in cups, which allow the headset to be mounted without any effort for easy installation. Integrated decks can be used only with integrated headsets. Non-integrated decks, on the other hand, require a non-integrated headset, which can be harder to instal.
