Ritchey Press-fit 1 1/8"
The WCS, Pro or Superlogic will work

You want the 1 1/8".
The Addict Is not tapered.

You can measure the diameter with a caliber.

41 x 30.15. 45 degrees.

Been through a few sets of the ritchey bearings which became notchy quickly. Replaced with Enduro bearings and no issues to report.

That's a tapered headset, 1-1/8" at the top and 1-1/2" at the bottom. It won't fit the addict. It would be too big at the bottom.

The Addict fork is 1-1/8" and does not taper.

You need to get a Ritchey 1-1/8" press-fit, 1-1/8" at the top and the bottom.
