Our 40-Series headset is the entry point for performance, quality, and value. Drawing from the premium 110-Series design, the 40-Series includes all the features necessary for a durable, lightweight, and easy to use headset.

Highlights:

  • Easily replaceable, sealed cartridge bearings
  • 6000 series alloy cups and materials
  • Sealed steel crown race
  • ZN40 Bearings
  • Precision engineered by Cane Creek in Fletcher, NC

We make headsets easier. Our headsets use interchangeable parts and over forty configurations to meet almost every size need. Sold in straight and tapered assemblies or tops & bottoms, tops are generally available in either short (9mm) or tall (15mm) bearing covers to further customize the look of your cockpit setup.

Looking to add some color? Check out the Hellbender 70 in Chroma Studio.

*Our ZN40 bearings (used in all 40 Series headsets) can feel rough in hand initially. This is a necessary side effect of the corrosion-resistant zinc coating used on the balls and races. This initial roughness wears in, becoming smoother with use, and extends the overall lifespan of the bearings.

Forty

Setting The Standard

Featuring a full alloy construction – sealed cartridge bearings, 6000 series alloy cups and materials, and a sealed steel crown race, the Forty series headset sets the standard for all other headsets to be judged.

Cane Creek Zn40 headset bearings

ZN40 Bearings

The ZN40 bearings are corrosion-resistant zinc-coated, machined steel cartridge bearings with hardened steel balls, which vastly increases the longevity of the 40 series headsets. 

Forty Series Headset

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

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.

Is it suitable for a Santa Cruz Hightower C 2019? According to the official website, the specifications of the box are: Tapered - Integrated Headset. 1-1/8" Upper bearing and 1.5" Lower bearing. S.H.I.S. IS 41/28.6 IS 52/40 Rony Lehman asked on November 21, 2023

Yes! This is the correct headset for this bike.

is this compatible with my 2019 yeti sb150? Mark Jordan asked on November 1, 2023

Yeti does not list older bikes on their website so you will either need to call Yeti, or you or your local bike shop can measure the headset to check for size. Yeti has used both IS41/52 and ZS44/56 for 2019 models so it would be one or the other.

Is this a correct headset for Santa Cruz Heckler 2022? Mine is 9 C build. stock lower bearing has a notable play, trying to source a correct part. Should be IS 41/52 type. I think lower bearing is 36/45, top 45/45 degrees?? thank you! Pavel Zaytsev asked on October 24, 2023

Your 2022 Heckler uses an IS41/28.6 top and IS52/40 headset. Both bearings used a 36x45 and you can choose from our 40 Series.
