The ultimate in headset performance and durability, the new Solos headset is our top of the line headset. Available in both classic and the Cane Creek integrated standard designs, the Solos is the best choice for upgrading your bike’s headset.
The Solos headset utilizes very low friction bearings for drag free performance. The large diameter balls (5/32”) are larger than those of other headset brands and yield reduced rolling resistance. The bearings also incorporate low drag rubber seals and nylon retainer cages for more efficient bearing movement.
In addition to housing fully sealed stainless steel cartridge bearings, the Solos’ overhanging cup/cover design keeps contaminants from reaching the bearings. This overhanging “treacherous path” feature is repeated with the lower cup/crown race.
