Cane Creek has become synonymous with dependable, well made componentry, and the 110 Series Integrated Headset is an excellent example of everything the North Carolina based brand is associated with: careful construction and effective design that both looks good and functions exactly how it's supposed to. It's not common we find products that are guaranteed for the next 110 years, and the lifetime plus warranty speaks to Cane Creek's attention to detail and confidence in its designs. Starting with treated, U. S. made 7075 T 6 aluminum, Cane Creek engineers carefully shape the 110 IS to eliminate weight wherever possible without sacrificing any structural integrity. IS refers to Cane Creek's internal headset design and, and it houses stainless steel bearings with low friction seals on the upper bearing and a dual sealed crown race to keep grease in and contaminants out. The result is responsive, effective steering that feels solid but never clunky.
