Wolf Tooth's New Premium and Performance Headsets

By Stan Portus –  2 October 2020

Wolf Tooth’s Premium and Performance Headsets are designed to keep the elements out and performing year-round, with triple seals and aircraft-grade aluminium. Available in 9 colours, they’ll make your bike pop too.

Anyone familiar with Wolf Tooth will know that it is dedicated to finding innovative solutions to cyclist’s unmet needs and elevating the standard of existing components and parts to whole new levels.

Wolf Tooth’s updated headset range is no exception. Developed to withstand extreme conditions and keep the elements out – ultimately making your headset and bearings work better for longer – the new headsets are tailored to demands of different riders’ needs and performance demands.

The range is split into two main headsets: Premium and Performance. They are both designed to be lightweight, strong, and durable, and are made from aircraft grade 6061 aluminium under Wolf Tooth’s meticulously eye at its Minnesota, USA, HQ.

The headsets have three levels of industry-leading custom sealing to protect the bearings and prolong the headsets life. The top cup of the headsets has an inner O-ring seal to stop rain or water enter the top the cup and contaminate your steerer tube. A precision fitting labyrinth and lip seal stops moisture entering the upper headset cup, and the bearings have a silicone seal for extra protection.

Wolf Tooth’s headsets use high-end Enduro bearings. They are engineered to use the largest possible ball size and are filled with high-pressure lubricant.

The headsets are sold as separate upper and lower cups so you can be sure to get the right size with ease.

It’s not just performance. Available in nine anodised colours the Premium and Performance headsets will bring a pop of colour to your bike, whether you decide to go for a matched up, unified look or some eye-grabbing colour clash.

The Premium Headset comes with three top cap height options: 6mm, 15mm, 25mm. This gives any build a neat look and saves hassle with misaligned spacers.

The Premium Headset is also available in Zero Stack, Integrated, and External Cup designs, so you can get the best Wolf Tooth quality whatever you ride.

The headset uses Enduro’s premium stainless-steel bearings for unparalleled corrosion resistance. These are highly recommended if you ride in the foulest conditions. But even if you don’t, they come with a Lifetime Warranty for peace of mind.
