Calling all Look experts HSC6 fork question

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Calling all Look experts HSC6 fork question

Can this fork be used with standard 1 1/8 bearings on another frame?

I know that the Look 595 it comes bundled with uses a tapering headtube, 1 1/8 up top and 1 1/4 on the bottom, but does that mean the outside diameter of the lower bearing is 1 1/4, while the inside diameter remains a standard 1 1/8? Or is the bearing evenly oversized?

In other words, does the steerer of the HSC6 get fatter at the bottom to accommodate an oversized bearing, or is it a constant 1 1/8 width?

Help very appreciated! Thanks!

"Also a new innovation to the 595 is the use of the all-new HSC6 fork. In keeping with the strength and performance, the fork has been designed with 1 ¼” lower bearing race and taper’s to a standard 1 1/8” at the upper".
