Stranger’s Ballast: A Simpler Headset

    Stranger’s Ballast headset could be the next step in the progression of 45/45 Campagnolo compatible headsets. Designed for a minimal stack height it also simplifies the traditional headsets with an integrated wedge and dust cover. That means fewer components, making it easier to install and less to go wrong. I don’t know if this will catch on for the race scene, but I’m sure if it does it won’t be long before we see a one piece top cap/wedge using lighter materials such as composites or carbon fibre.
