[RATING:4.5] Over 20 years ago, Cane Creek introduced the world to threadless headset technology. Looking for new ways to improve performance and durability they have put all there
years of experiance together to produce the 110 range of headsets.
The 110 is Cane Creeks flagship headset which they machine in house at their Fletcher, North Carolina facility. This allows them to keep tighter control over quality and design specifications.
Cane Creek warranties the 110 for 110 years which when you take into account the price it makes it the obvious choice for any new build. Along with the amazing backing of the warranty the 110 has a host of unique features not seen anywhere else.
Captured Compression Ring: By enclosing the compression ring within the top bearing cover, the system is protected from outside contaminants while preserving functionality.
Split-Lip Bearing: By incorporating a dual lip design the bearing gets twice the protection of standard headsets while decreasing friction.
Scalloped Interlok Spacers: Provides solid interface between the top cover and spacer stack while shaving 25% in weight off a standard alloy spacer stack.
Premium Headset Alloy: Cups and spacers are machined from 7075 T-6 aluminum, which is 95% stronger than the 6061 alloy used in many headsets.
All these features add up to a great all round package which you will struggle to find anywhere else. At last is this a true contender for Chris King and when you take into the warranty Cane Creek are offering maybe it is Chris King who has some catching up to do.
