It is a reducer cup only. Would only work that way anyways. Apparently it can work with Tapered, which also makes sense to me.

That system is super sick, might be a bit sketch but I want on one, now.

The reazon it took so long its that here as always there is the legal aspect.
One, get the patent worked out.
Two,protect yourself against lawsuits from stupid riders and mechanics that dont know how to use it.

Some details from Cane Creek:

Called the Cane Creek AngleSet

The all-new AngleSet threadless headset from Cane Creek makes it possible to change your game. You can now transform the head angle of your mountain bike with ease, as the low-stack-height AngleSet offers up to six offset angle adjustments. With steeper or slacker adjustments from 0.5 to 1.5… degrees, dialing in the perfect geometry to attack the trail is a breeze.

The patent-pending design of AngleSet is head-tube length independent and fits most popular head tube standards. A self-aligning feature between the bearings and the steerer tube ensures a perfect fit and makes fork installation a snap

A self-aligning feature between the bearings and the steerer tube ensures a perfect fit and makes fork installation a snap.

Allows the head angle to be adjusted Slacker or Steeper. 6 offset angles: +/- 0.5, +/- 1.0, +/- 1.5 degrees.

Options:

AngleSet ZS49 – ZS49/30
(Fits 49mm [1.5” Traditional] ID head-tubes – 1-1/8” Straight Steerer)

AngleSet ZS44 – ZS49/30
(Fits tapered head-tubes – 44mm [1-1/8” Zero Stack] ID top, 49mm [1.5” Traditional] ID bottom – 1-1/8” Straight Steerer)

AngleSet ZS44 – ZS56/30
(Fits tapered head-tubes – 44mm [1-1/8” Zero Stack] ID top, 56mm [1.5” Zero Stack] ID bottom – 1-1/8” Straight Steerer)

See more pictures here or at CaneCreek’s Facebook page.

K9 and Worx Components have already created head tube angle reducing options, but they don’t quite offer the same adjustabilty or ease of fitment that the Cane Creek is promising. Feel free to read up on the K9 ARC -2º Headset Cups
