Chris King says that the Dropset 5 headset fits many Specialized Mountain bikes. Does anyone know specifically if it will fit a 2022 Epic HT 29?

I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a straight headtube, I'm pretty sure it uses drop in bearings and it definitely doesn't have an EC lower so no.

If anything King makes will fit it's probably Dropset 5.

I meant to type "Dropset 5".

Updating this. I did the measurements as the King diagram shows, decided to take the plunge.
King Dropset 5 fits the S Works Epic HT perfectly! Way nicer than the Cane Creek AER that is supplied with the frame.
