One of my favorite parts.

I have used many FSA headsets over the years, and I have these on two of my current bikes and I like them a lot. Finish and frame fit are impeccable, and they have been smooth and durable in service. Looks are a personal choice, but I like the angular lines and bold graphics of the MX. I have used Chris King headsets, and of course they are still a go-to choice when money is no object, but these feel just as good and seem to hold up very well for about a third of what a King headset runs. Highly recommended.

Pros: Durable, smooth, nice looking
Reasonably priced
Color choices - unusual in this price range

Cons: None of consequence

This is one of those products that works fine and you can just forget about. It's solid and can hold up to the elements. The big white on black graphics are nice and remind you of much more expensive headsets.

Excellent Headset

I have used the Orbit X on three other bikes that I have built in the past years and decided to use the Orbit MX on my recent cyclocross build. I am very satisfied with the quality of manufacture and the smoothness.

Pros: Very nice quality, split ring, excellent finish.

Cons: None so far.

I picked the blue anodized and it looks so good! The color really pops on my bike. The bearings are smooth and it was a very inexpensive headset

I got the blue version of this and it's sweet! The anodized look is awesome for my bike and the headset has survived quite a bit of riding. The bearings are still good after ~ a year of XC and the shine is still great.

For a cheap headset with nice color options, I highly recommend this one.

Quality internals in a light weight package. The color options make this headset even better.

The only one I use

I love this headset. Since I discovered it a few years ago I have been using it on all my builds. You get great performance and wide color selection for half the price of the super high end headsets. I've never had creaking issues and the bearings are nice and smooth.

Pros: Price
Color selection
Smooth

Cons: None
