PROS: Stylish, Lightweight, Durable
Cane creek headsets are normally the best there is out there in my opinion (for price over king as a major reason)
I did however have numerous issues with this headset. It was never function as it did exactly as it said it would.
The issues lies in the design of the gimbal. After many calls and videos/reviews about or with cane creek I had to get my money back and go with a o/e spec cane creek headset as this one made noise and shifted when taking big square edge hits. I went thru the setup with cane creek and we even went well or torque spec to cure the issue. After many attempts i was told to return the item for a refund as they could do nothing more to remedy the problem.
Once again this review is nothing against jenson or cane creek as both offer the best customer service imaginable. This is purely for this one design of headset.
Buy a non angle set and be set !
