Hopetech Headset Lower ZS56

A lower headset assembly compatible with your Airdrop Edit v2 frame*.

The Hopetech ZS56 headset lower is designed to fit frames with a tapered 56mm head tube or a straight 56mm (1.5") headtube. We've been using Hope headsets for years without any issues, and that's because of the incredibly precise machining, great seals, high quality bearings and attention to detail. This is a lower headset assembly and is available in the 6 standard Hope colours. Pair it up with a Hopetech Headset Upper ZS44 to built your Airdrop Edit v2 up with tapered forks.

This is a special order item and is usually available in 3-5 working days.

*Not compatible with Edit v1 frame - you'll need a ZS55 headset lower for that.
