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.

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.

Q & A

What’s are the angles of cups, crown race and bearings for the zs56 40 series ? Do you have a diagram with the graphics and specs I can access? Marcelo Altieri Ramalho asked on November 23, 2023

All of our complete headsets use bearings with 45deg outer angles, and 36deg inner angles. Therefore angles of bearing seat in cups is 45 and our crown races are mostly 36. We do sell some* bearings with 45/45 angles and a couple 45deg crown races individually to handle unique situations.

What is the difference between the zs56/30 and zs56/40? Richard asked on May 6, 2023

The ZS56/30 will work with a 1 1/8" straight steerer tube and the ZS56/40 will work with a 1 1/8"-1 1/2" tapered steerer tube. The only difference is the inside diameter of the crown race.
