Works Components ZS44/ZS56 1.0 Degree Angle Headset
The Works Components angle headset makes it possible to change the head angle of almost any mountain bike that uses ZS44/ZS56 cups.
The head angle of your bike will have a large effect upon how it rides, in simple terms a 'slacker' head angle will give your bike a more stable feeling than a bike with a 'steeper' head angle. Over time the head angle of bikes has reduced, with the slackest bikes being around 62° and the steepest around 70°.
Fitting an angle headset will make various changes to your bikes geometry; a 1.0 degree headset will lengthen your wheelbase by around 10mm, lower your bottom bracket by 2mm and change what is referred to as your bikes 'trail', all of which will alter the way your bike feels. Just like we are not all the same size, we don't all ride in the same places and with the same style. Angle and Geometry Adjust Headsets gives you the opportunity to tailor your bikes geometry to suit your own preferences.
Max headtube length to get a full 1.0 degree change is 126mm due to space for bearing offset internally. The ZS44/ZS56 combination is only available in the 1.0 degree option.
Use of this headset requires measuring your head tube length to select the correct headset. If your headtube is between sizes, it it advised to size up to the larger size.
