Headset Specs Explained

With a proliferation of headset specs in the last few years it has become increasingly difficult to determine which headset will fit in which frame. Hopefully explaining the jargon used to identify headsets will help make it easier to get the headset you need.

The first group of numbers (to the left of the vertical line) describe the upper part of the headset while the second group of numbers (to the right of the vertical line) describe the part of the headset that will fit into the bottom of the head tube.
The first letters ‘EC‘ refer to the type of headset being described and is explained above.
The second set of numbers ‘ 34‘ refers to the size of the hole in the top of your head tube where the headset cups or bearings will go.
The second number “28.6” refers to the diameter of the fork where you will clamp the stem. Most contemporary bikes use the ‘28.6’ size which is a 1 1/8″ fork.
The vertical line separates the upper and lower parts of the headset.

The first letters ‘EC‘ refer to the type of headset being described and is explained above.
The second set of numbers “34” refers to the size of the hole in the bottom of your head tube where the headset cups or bearings will go.
The ‘30‘ refers to the size of the crown race that will fit on the steerer tube of the fork that will be installed with the frame.

Enduro Bearings for Gousseau Hubs

ABEC-5 Bearings

ABEC Ratings are manufacturing and testing standards that each bearing must pass. These include precisely defined tolerances for inside and outside bearing diameters, roundness of ball, trueness of races, and the surface finish for all of the above. Enduro’s ABEC 5 bearings – designed specifically for bicycle application – offer the deepest grooves and largest balls possible in every size to increase bearing strength and durability. Due to this increased ball size and groove depth, our bearings require tighter manufacturing tolerances combined with exacting finish and assembly protocols to meet ABEC standards, resulting in greater precision overall.

Angular Contact Bearings

Angular Contact (AC) Bearings where the two races sandwich the balls at an angle. This allows them to manage radial, axial and combined loads.  Because they can be preloaded, AC bearings allow for precise sideload adjustment, eliminating free-play or “slop” while still smoothly handling radial loads. Whereas radial bearings at times only provide 50% ball-to-race contact, AC bearings promote 100% contact, with the balls held in very light tension between opposing angular bearing races. To double down on durability, Enduro AC bearings include larger balls that smoothly carry greater loads while eliminating the micro-slop in wheel hubs that can contribute to disc brake rub.

LLB AND LLU Bearing Seals

Enduro LLB Bearings seals for Gousseau Hubs

LLB seals are ideally suited for constantly spinning hub bearings. Rather than one thick 2RS seal lip rubbing on a blunt surface, LLB type utilizes two razor-thin sealing lips riding in the bearing race groove. The outer lip keeps the water and contaminants out, while the inner lip retains grease for smooth function and longer intervals between servicing. 

LLU Seals are full contact, dual lip seals that slot into a groove on the inner race. With more sealing pressure than LLB seals, the increased seal pressure helps retain the 90% grease fill to continually lubricate the balls and races, while keeping dirt and moisture out.

Kluber Grease

Enduro XD15 Speed Grease is for fast-moving bottom brackets and wheels. ‘Speed’ is our branded Klüber Isoflex “Fast” grease. XD15 Speed grease is not fragile; it features a unique formulation that sticks inside the bearing, providing long-term protection from the elements. Engineered to stick to the balls and continually be pulled back into the ball path, XD15 Speed grease is ideally suited for hub bearings. This grease runs better and smoother over time and is highly resistant to washout.
