110 Series Tapered ZS44 EC44/40 Headset - Limited Edition Pink by Cane Creek
With the urging of a few frame manufacturers, Cane Creek has begun building this 110-Series 44 Tapered Headset to accommodate a 1-1/8" - 1. 5" tapered steerer inside a straight 44mm I. D. headtube. While this headtube standard was originally developed for zero stack (ZS) 1-1/8" straight steerers, it's just roomy enough for a tapered steerer as long as the lower cup houses the bearing outside the head tube. As such, this headset is technically a traditional tapered 110, but the 1. 5" lower cup has a 44mm O. D. skirt for the press-fit into the frame. The 110 begins life when Cane Creek machines the cups from custom drawn, US made seamless 7075 aluminum tube. Each part has been relieved of excess material, inside and out, to keep the weight to a bare minimum while retaining the strength you'll depend on. These cups house the stainless steel sealed cartridge bearings, both of which use Cane Creek's proprietary split-lip seals to keep the grease in and contaminants out. At the same time, these seals run smoothly against the races with a minimum of drag so your steering feel will be rock solid, yet will respond to the lightest touch on the bars. It's quite possible that dirt and muck will never even reach the bearing seals anyway. The 110 Headset includes low-friction seals on the top bearing cover and on the crown race that effectively seal the cup and bearing contained within. Another advantageous detail of the 110 is the captured compression ring under the top bearing cover. It facilitates easy assembly and eliminates the possibility of rocking or creaking regardless of the small variations often found in steerer tube diameters. And for lightweight carbon fiber steerer tubes, the extra surface area over other systems ensures a damage free compressive junction. All these technical details aside, you may simply lust for the jewel-like quality of the 110-Series Headset due to its highly polished finish or its rich anodized colors. And that's perfectly fine too. The Can...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
