Cane Creek Solos Headset

DESCRIPTION

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.

This is a great product though now replaced by the 100 and 110 series, but I've had several Solos headsets that have moved from frame to frame.

Smoothness, feels like it glides on air. I got the tall cup. I performs flawlessly... Looks aren't to shabby either.

None.

The product is great!!! I've never used a Chris King before and probably don't plan to since its a pretty penny. But the headset is awesome!!! Feels like there is no drag/friction. Performs like it glides on air. Makes the bike feel more responsive...

5 flamin' chilis!!!!

This headset has performed very well so far. I replaced a CK that creaked with this one. It looks very good and cost a little less then my King did. Mine is red, but this headset comes in many different colors.
