Minneapolis, Minnesota (November 6, 2021) — The new GeoShift 2º Performance Angle Headset from Wolf Tooth Components allows riders to alter the geometry of their bike by changing the head tube angle by +/- 2º. The GeoShift 2º Performance Angle Headset was designed, engineered and machined in Wolf Tooth’s Minnesota machine shop and builds on the existing GeoShift 1º Performance Angle Headset first launched in 2018.
The GeoShift 2º Performance Angle Headset is sold as an upper and lower pair, with EC44/EC44, EC44/EC49, and EC44/ZS56 pairings and options for 90-115mm or 115-140mm head tubes. The EC44 uppers are compatible with frames that require ZS44 uppers. Two positions are marked on the GeoShift Performance Angle Headset: +2º and -2º. Positioning the headset with -2º facing forward will slacken the geometry, creating more stability during fast descents. Conversely, switching the headset’s orientation will add +2º to the head tube angle, steepening the geometry and providing more responsive steering. Both angle options are indicated on the headset, along with centerline dashes to help with alignment during installation. The GeoShift 2º Performance Angle Headset also features bearings that are angled to match the angle of the steerer tube. This design reduces the friction found in angled headsets that position the bearings flat and helps limit the creaking found in angle headsets with a spherical design.
All Wolf Tooth headsets are made with aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum and feature black oxide Enduro Bearings with a triple-sealed system to protect the bearings from the elements. These bearings are engineered to use the largest possible ball size and are filled with high-pressure waterproof lubricant. A pair of dual-lip seals ride in micro-grooves to further protect the bearings from water and debris.
The GeoShift 2º Performance Angle Headset is available now on WolfToothComponents.com for $104.95 USD or anywhere Wolf Tooth Components are sold.
