Snycros’ 1.5 AM Hardcore headset is pretty impressive. It uses 7075 machined aluminum cups for durability and strength along with sealed cartridge bearings. Read more about their 1.5″ headset designed for AM/FR/DH inside.

The Syncros AM Hardcore headset is designed to work on your AM/FR/DH bike. The 7075 cups have a medium sized insertion that should work well at ~11mm, while still preventing ovalization. The headset is pretty light at just under 200g and features Enduro sealed cartridge bearings.

The markings on all of the Syncros’ headsets are clean and very subtle. It’s nice to see them taking a clean route to logo-ing as it seems to have become rampant to brand parts with big and bold lettering.

The construction of the headset is top notch and we’ll be trying this one out as well on a few bikes coming up. You can purchase this headset from their online store or at any good bike shop.
