The Nuke Proof Warhead DC (Deep Cup) headset is build to take a beating and keep you turning smoothly for years to come. The Deep Cups go 21mm into your head tube, making HT flaring next to impossible. We set this up on Sam's dirt jumper as we know that he's going to front wheel case something while doing a flip whip or 50/50 a landing on a 360 T-whip. Yep Sam is our go to guy when it comes to seeing how something will last in an abusive environment.Check out more pics, videos and details inside
The new Warhead DC headset from Nuke proof combines maximum performance with minimal maintenance to create a headset that you can fit and forget. This headset is a great choice for those that Downhill, Dirt jump, and All Mountain ride as hard as they can. With an amazing smooth rotation, and a perfect fit, the upper and lower cups of the Warhead headset are precision machined out of 7075-T6 aluminum to have a tight fit between the headset and frame. The headset is guaranteed to be smooth, it has an awesome feel, it has high quality stainless steal angular contact bearings that provide a silky smooth operation, and the labyrinth seal will keep away the build up of water, mud, and dust to keep the headset working great and still needing minimal maintenance. The headset also features a 21mm insertion depth to help minimize high stress loads from long travel DH and All-Mountain forks.

Enough tech manual mumbo jumbo, you're reading this to learn how it rides and holds up to abuse. And abuse is what I have given it!
Straight from my first ride with the new Warhead head set until now the smoothness of the sealed bearings has remained amazing. The headset has encountered, snow, rain, mud, Kamloop's dirt and more than a life time of crashes and yet it still is holding strong. I'll be installing this on my slopestyle bike once school is out and I can head to the ski hills a lot more, so I'll do my best to keep you updated to how it holds up to lift access riding after all the DJ sessions it's faced so far.
