    Airborne Guardian: What headset to upgrade to?

    Hi Airborne lovers! ALMOST finished with a complete upgrade on my Guardian. Yea, they make better frames with tapered headtubes to drop money into, but I like my Guardian frame, so it gets my $$! Anywho, the only thing left untouched except the seatpost is the fork (I know, complete opposite of normal advice LOl). Looking at putting on a Manitou Marvel Pro and upgrasing the headset while I am at it. Don't know much about headset, but with all different types and what not, it's making my head hurt on trying to figure out what kind the Guardian takes/what kind I should get. Advice?

    This is a direct swap:

    As is this:

    FSA 36 Degrees x 36 Degrees Bearings - FSA

    If looking at Cane Creek, you need a top ZS44/28.6 and a bottom ZS44/30

    Hope that helps.

    Please Note: I no longer work for Airborne. If you have an Airborne question or problem please contact them directly.
