40-Series Zero Stack Tapered Headset

Appreciating the style of a Cane Creek headset isn’t difficult as the North Carolina company impresses with consistent graphics and a polish that adds class to any ride in your stable. The 40-series Zero Stack Tapered Headset is no different. Cane Creek machines from the 40-Series from 6061 T-6 Aluminum to reduce weight, making it lighter than the 110-Series, and is now with zinc-coating for added resistance to corrosion, which if you live near the ocean or like to get your daily dirt sessions, you’ll know is very appreciated. Low friction face seals on the steel crown races and an innovative Clip-Seal, which “seals the top assembly and captures the compression ring” to control the number of pieces in the total headset.

The Goto Headset for All My Builds!

I've put it through the wringer

I've been ordering and using these Cane Creek 40 headsets for the past 5 years or so, and re-using/moving them between frames as I grow the fleet and upsize my kids' bikes. At least 3 or 4 headsets, across 6 or 7 frames. Recycling! No failures, always smooth running. The only reason to order more has been to cover sizes I don't have - the last move to a Meta HT Commensal for the oldest required a larger LOWER bearing. And so Competitive Cyclist had it, new size fit like a Lego, and they asked me to review it. And so I have!
