Weight weenies and gram counters alike will dance "The Dance of the Red Shoes" when they hear that FSA has launched a new super light headset !
FSA’s new ‘SL’ headset bearings use the same steel inner race and balls as the company’s standard all-steel bearings. However, instead of an all-steel outer race and casing, the SL bearings use an minimized steel race that’s tucked inside an aluminum shell.
FSA claims the reduction in weight is substantial – as much as 38 percent lighter than conventional bearings. However, the figures are more modest in terms of actual mass – just 7.7-9.2g depending on size.
Still, that’s the equivalent of say – a small morsel of Clif Bar, a large belch, or a slight release of flatulence ? Holy California Diet all over the place !
