The IS (integrated) Slamset shaves off 5mm of stack height compared to a standard item, while the ZS (zero-stack) version gets you 6mm lower – we’re essentially talking about one skinny headset spacer’s worth of stack here.
Because of the space restrictions imposed by the lower profile, the Slamset has less substantial seals than Cane Creek’s standard headset.
If you’re looking for a bearing upgrade for your existing Cane Creek headset, the Hellbender bearing fits 110, 40, Angleset and Air headsets.
The Slamset is expected to retail at $160 for the ZS and $130 for the IS (prices include upper and lower assemblies. Pricing in other territories is to be confirmed.
