Cane Creek Hellbender 70 Headset


Cane Creek knows headsets; in 1992 they introduced the world’s first threadless headset, the AheadSet, and have been designing and manufacturing innovative headset solutions since.  With their new Hellbender 70 Series headsets they have hit the perfect balance of performance and value.  Saddled between their top-tier 110 Series and the value oriented 40 Series headsets, the Hellbender 70 headsets offer virtually all of the high-performance design attributes of the 110 Series at a much lower price point.  Similar to the premium quality sealed stainless-steel bearings found in the 110 series, the Hellbender bearings were designed and tested to withstand heavy-duty use and harsh environmental conditions, featuring increased sealing elements and added grease.  The upper bearing seal is low-friction for smooth, drag-free rotation while the specially designed double-lip lower bearing seal adds an extra layer of protection against contaminates at the more susceptible crown race area.  Long bearing life and optimal performance is ensured through the extreme protection provided by these seals.  The bearing cups and covers are carefully machined from 6061 T-6 Aluminum and are internally contoured and relived to reduce weight while maximizing strength.  These headsets feature a polished black anodized finish with subtle white logos, are compatible with Cane Creek's Interlok spacer system (also compatible with standard headset spacers), and are available in IS41/IS52, IS42/IS52, ZS44/EC44, and ZS44/ZS56 combinations.  All Hellbender 70 headsets include a star nut, top cap, and top bolt.
