Snagged one of these. They are basically ALL plastic, including the cups AND bottom/top races. The only metal is the needle bearings and very thin races for those bearings.....41grams no top cap

Very reminiscent of the old Nylor headsets. I wonder how a plastic race holds up?

I was wondering the same thing. On such an important piece of the bike, is the weight savings really worth the risk? How does it hold up?
