Cane Creek

Cane Creek is a respectable company that focuses largely on headsets and suspension, but also produce brake and brake levers, seatposts, and other gear. They're super ambitious, and heading in the right direction with fundamental philosophies that enhance the cycling experience.

  • Cane Creek invented threadless headsets, and introduced air-sprung, air-dampened rear shocks to the market in the mid-1990s.

"A key element of Cane Creek's mission is to support the sport of cycling, including racing, charitable activities and cycling advocacy. Cane Creek believes strongly in the power of bicycles and their potential to effect positive change in our society. To that end, Cane Creek supports athletes and teams whose purpose encompasses more than competitive racing, such as getting more people on bikes, improving or promoting a healthy lifestyle, and making our world better through the use of a bike."
