    2011 covert headset confusion!

    Hi everyone,

    I've just ordered a 2011 covert frame and i'm looking for the correct headset to purchase!

    I'm running a tapered fork.

    Would the gravity dx pro be the correct headset:

    There are so many different styles and they all seem to give different info, i can't figure it out!

    There is also the gravity sx for a "different O/D headtube":

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hugh

    I think you need the first one, the second link doesn't look like it's for tapered forks?

    Email Transition if unsure, I had a few questions about headsets when I was ordering my 2011 Covert and they were always very helpful.

    In the end I went for an Acros AX-22r (straight 1-1.8"fork.)

    You want this one

    The one you have linked is not the same. The 44/49 size is what you need.

    Thanks guy's. The first one i linked to has the same part number as the one you linked to singletrack so i'm assuming it's the same headset just the wrong pic. No one in the UK seems to sell that headset as in the ink you gave with that pic.

    Hopefully i have ordered the correct one!

    Thanks

    I got my Covert from eighteen bikes in Hope, they asked what fork I was going to run (straight 1 1/8") and fitted a Hope headset for me.
    Cy is a nice helpful guy, give him a ring.
