The all-new 40-Series is the work-horse of Cane Creek's headset line-up.
The series incorporates all the features necessary for a durable, light-weight, long-lasting headset and represents the perfect balance of performance, durability and value.
A bicycle headset attaches the fork to the frame, they consist of bearings and races which allow the forks steerer to move within the frames headtube. There are a few types of headset, these are threaded and ahead. Threaded headsets are the older type and use a thread on the forks steerer to adjust, an ahead type has no thread and uses a top cap to adjust the tension. Ahead headsets come in three options, external cup, internal and integrated. Integrated and internal headsets use bearings which fit inside the headtube and provide clean lines, whereas the external cup system uses cups which fit into the frame but are still visible. Most will use cartridge bearings which last well and have very low maintenance requirements, one thing worth doing is to switch the top and bottom bearing periodically, as the bottom bearings are more prone to wear as they support the weight of the bike and rider.
Cane Creek components have been ridden to numerous wins in world-class events. Professional racing teams that have used Cane Creek components include: Mountain Bike Racing,3D Racing, DEVO, Haro, Honda/Turner, Michal Prokop/Author Racing, Rocky Mountain, Subaru/Fisher, Trek/Volkswagen. Cane Creek started in 1995. Their first product line had brakes, headsets, hubs, and shocks. Their original air-shock design gradually won over a suspension universe that was in thrall to coil shocks. While they have continued to assert their leadership all their product categories, they have expanded into other areas that can benefit from a dose of their "technology that makes sense." In 1999 they acquired the Thudbuster suspension seat post and have since upgraded its patented design to provide what has been called the "ultimate upgrade for hardtails."
