Description of Tune Babo Headset - Tapered - ZS44/28.6 | EC44/40The BABO is a tapered ahead headset with an excellent load carrying capacity at a minimal weight of just 91 grams. A long durability is the result of the new seals with ventilation and drain edges combined with 2 precision angular contact cartridge bearings. Because of the low stack height of the top half it's nearly invisible on the bike, the lowrer half has an external cup.
To bring more clarity into the confusing world of bike headsets a standardized language for accurately describing modern headsets was introduced: the new Standardized Headset Identification System (S.H.I.S).
The name TUNE BABO describes the tapered ahead headset with a mixed construction, what means that the upper cup is integrated (usually referred to as semi integrated) while the lower cup holds the bearign externally. The S.H.I.S. denotation is ZS44/28.6 | EC44/40.
