Precision, quality, value
A headset designed to bridge the gap between the Cane Creek 40-series and 110-series headsets. With all the design characteristics, sealing element, and Hellbender bearings found on a 110-series headset, at a price closer to a 40-series.
Burrowed deep in the streams and rivers of the Appalachian mountains, the Hellbender Salamander is a rare creature that thrives in the mud and water. Like their namesake, these bearing are built to live in the most extreme conditions, keeping you riding smoothly through rain, mud, grit or whatever the road and trail throws at you. Using stainless steel bearings with increased sealing elements and more grease in relation to the comparable 110 bearing, the Hellbender is the only way to make your Cane Creek headset even better.
The cups and covers are made of 6061 T-6 aluminum, internally contoured and relieved to minimize weight and maximize strength
An low-friction upper bearing seal completely seals cup from contaminants and is fully captured by the top cover with no loose parts. The dual-seal crown race provides excellent seal efficiency with low friction.
Interlok® spacer compatible.
Internal parts are cross-compatible across the 10, 40 and 110 series.
Complete headset with 9 mm top and 1 mm bottom cap.
This headset is suitable for 1 1/8" forks, Italian Head-Tube and 52 mm lower headtube inner diameter. The S.H.I.S. denotation (see attachment) is IS42/28.6 | IS52/40.
