FSA Polycarbonate Headset Spacers: £5.95/10
What if, with one simple purchase, you could lose weight, save money, and even add a bit of colour to your ride?*
Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not! At £5.95/$15 for a bag of ten 5mm spacers are not only cheaper than boring old carbon fibre- they’re lighter too. A stack of ten weighs 16g- a full 7g less than a same-height pile of carbon spacers. That means that a typical 3-spacer installation will save nearly 2g over the carbon equivalent.
But wait- there’s more! FSA’s Polycarbonate Spacers are sold in translucent blue, green, grey, orange, pink, red and clear to match any colour scheme.
All joking aside, these plastic spacers are fun, cheap, and light. What more could one want?
