Well over a decade ago, we set out to make the best premium headset on the market. With our 110 Series, we did just that, utilizing optimal materials, the most effective seals and the best aesthetics.
With the flexibility to purchase complete assemblies or separate Tops and Bottoms, tops are available in either short (9mm) or tall (15mm) stack height bearing covers, the 110-Series offers a premium solution for nearly all straight and tapered configurations on the market today. From Integrated (IS) Tops to External Cup (EC) Conversion Bottoms and everything in between, you can mix and match your headset purchase to best meet your needs.
The Hellbender bearings 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 and advanced sealing elements.
Interlok® Spacer Compatible
Our patented Interlok spacer design provides solid interface between the top cover and spacer stack, meaning they “nest” together and into the top of the bearing cover, which helps minimize shifting under load while riding; and shave 25% in weight off a standard alloy spacer stack. Spacers sold separately
The absolute best
The 110-Series offers the widest array of configurations available in a premium headset. With over 26 straight and tapered combinations, whatever your headset requirement, we have a premium solution for you, backed by our lifetime guarantee and superior customer service.
Cane Creek Headsets
A legacy of innovation
In 1992, we brought the Aheadset®, the original threadless headset, to market – kicking off a major change in the way bicycle frames and forks would be developed going forward.
The original design of that revolutionary headset is still found in almost all bikes on the market today.

Name: Reed Mann
Position: Design Engineer
Year started: 2022
Best part of being a part of the Cane Creek family: It’s very refreshing to work for a small, tight-knit company where we all share the same passions and to develop new products that make cycling better for everyone.
What you’ll find me doing on the weekends: Obviously riding bikes, but also wrenching on bikes or cars, exploring the mountains, and watching F1 races.
How I got here (at Cane Creek): Feeling pretty unfulfilled with a corporate engineering job, I happened to see that Cane Creek was hiring. I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands dirty working on the latest bike tech and was fortunate enough to be offered the position.
