The Cane Creek Viscoset will help make your bike safer by dampening the steering, and reducing the dreaded ‘Speed Wobble’ that sometimes occurs when vibrations start small and get worse due to harmonics.
Utilizing specially designed damping plates above the bearing in the upper assembly, ViscoSet stops the oscillation before it can grow to a dangerous level. These micro-thin plates are inter-leaved and connected to both the frame and the fork's steerer tube. As they rotate against each other, a fluorocarbon gel between each layer provides maintenance free viscous damping, preventing the dreaded speed wobble and allowing riders to maintain control.
I got it for an E-bike, at the price I paid it was only a minor premium over a Cane Creek series 40 but it will hopefully prevent the bike from rapidly changing direction if I hit an unseen pothole at speed. I don't expect speed wobble but if it is a problem, the Viscoset should solve that too.
A final benefit is that it will prevent handlebar flop when I'm loading the bike on the kickstand.
The alternative is a Hopey steering damper which is quite expensive.
The aesthetic is nice also, the IS44 head tube cut has a very clean look and the damper blends in with a 2" head tube.
