40-Series ZS44/28.6 Tall Top Assembly Headset

More parts mean more chances for failure and creaking, so Cane Creek designed the 40-Series ZS44/28.6 Tall Top Assembly Headset to be used without spacers, so you increase strength, decrease the likelihood of creaking, and get 15mm of rise in one convenient and durable package.

Cane Creek built the headset cups from strong T6 alloy and stashed away black oxide cartridge bearings inside. The ZS's races and bearing are made of steel that's been treated to prevent corrosion, and the cartridges are finished with Cane Creek's Split Lip seal, which provides extra protection against dirt while locking in grease. There are additional seals at the crown race and top, and a Clip-Seal in the upper section to prevent all the smaller parts from falling apart during assembly.

  • 6061 T6 alloy cups
  • Steel crown race
  • Black oxide cartridge bearings with Split Lip seal
  • 15mm rise
  • Item #CNE0029

Little extra lift at the base

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Nice quality piece. Using this tall top headset I was able to lift my bars up in what looks to be a much more stable platform. Plus I like the way this looks over a standard flat headset piece.

Cheap and Cheerful

The 40 series is a solid headset. Affordable, long lasting, and available in pretty much any conceivable configuration. Only thing they're lacking is bling factor, and considering the price, that's not a big deal.

Great headset! Very durable bearing and smooth. No need to spend hundreds of $$ when you can get the 40 series. Top cap is tall so is allows you to run less spacers under the stem

Will the CANE CREEK 40-SERIES ZS44/28.6 TALL TOP ASSEMBLY HEADSET fit my 2015 Ridley Noah ISP frameset?

This says head"set"and mentions the bottom...

This says head"set"and mentions the bottom stack height is 1mm. Is this truly for the set or only the top cup? Thank you.

This item only includes the top cup.
