Headset Bearings



All Cane Creek headset bearings are durable, sealed cartridge bearings, and they’re interchangeable between headset series. Simply match the bearing size and drop in your new bearing. (See below for bearing compatibility).

We cannot guarantee compatibility with our bearings in a different manufacturer’s headset.

Precision engineered by Cane Creek in Fletcher, NC.

Note: BAA2297 is drop-in bearing upgrade kit for FSA IS42/IS52 headsets (commonly found on current Specialized mountain bikes). Designed to work with existing headset bearing cover and compression ring. Sealed crown race included.

Q & A

What are the angles on the BAA2297 set? Steve Croyle asked on January 13, 2024

The upper bearing has 45/45 angles and the lower is 45 outer, 36 inner. This bearing set includes our sealed crown race to match the lower bearing inner angle, so there is no need for this to match what's currently on the bike.

The following bearing should work for you. BAA1159. Matches those dimensions fairly close.

HELP ! looking for a headset bearing on my Wilier Lavaredo 2003/4 (TANGE for CANE CREEK) <=== marking on the dust cap measurement is ID 30.2mm OD 41.6mm W 6.2mm Does a OD 41.8mm fit ???? (scared to crack it).🤔 THX GIUSEPPE CICORIA asked on November 8, 2023

These measurements that you are listing are close enough that I would assume our bearing would fit! There is quite a wide range of tolerance for IS headset bearings.

Guys have a 2021 Orbea Rallon with an Acros headset. The bearings IS42/28.6 and IS52/40. ID and OD of these bearings match Cane Creek bearings. However the width is different as the IS42/28.6 is 8mm. What am I not getting about this and how can I fix this. I don't know if they are 45/45 or 45/36. Andrew Dehm asked on November 3, 2023

Acros uses a taller bearing so often our bearings cannot be used with their top bearing covers. The best way is to replace the entire headset, or, you can use IS headset shims if the bearing is too deep in the head tube and wont allow the bearing cover to engage the bearing. We offer 0.5mm and 0.25mm shims in packs of 10... part # HSS2050 or HSS2051.

You will also want to make sure the bearing angles match as well.
