I'm currently after the exact same thing for my '19 SuperX. I just bought this FSA Orbit Reducer Headset specifically for the top cap itself. I'm currently out of country but will update you this weekend when I'm back home and can try it out.
FYI that FSA orbit headset didn't work. Looks like I'm back to ordering the full KP205, unless someone knows of somewhere to get just that low-stack topcap.

Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but did you ever try the KP205 top cap (and did it work)?

Thanks, D

Anyone knows if KP205 top cover works for SuperX? I would like to achieve the same result showed in this post (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=156286&start=15#p1476100)

Thanks all

Hey RyanH. Quick question on your SuperX... can you tell me what the clearance is at the fork? I just bought a superX fork for my gravel build and I am trying to figure out the biggest tire I can fit in there so I can get them on order. You think a 47c would fit at the fork? Thanks!

Let me jump in as I was playing around with this setup quite a bit:
650B*47c fits front & back - tight, but I was running this frame with the original Byways trough Kyrgyztan last year without issues.
700C*42c fits - I was running WTB Resolute 700*42 earlier, maybe an extra mm or two would fit in the back but 47 for sure not. on the front clearance is a bit wider though..

Thanks Sebejo! that is great info... I ordered the WTB Byways already and appreciate the confirmation. Seems that most 650b tire options go from 35/38c area straight to 47c. And pretty much any tread design I liked was 47c only.
