13Industries is excited to announce the addition of Cane Creek components to their brand portfolio, effective immediately. Here’s the lowdown:
Cane Creek Cycling Components is widely known as the pioneer of threadless headsets. The invention and launch of the Aheadset in 1992 single-handedly moved bicycle design from threaded steerer tubes with quill stems, to the modern threadless steer tubes and clamp-on stems we see on all bikes today. This innovation made for far easier and more reliable adjustments to the headset.
Fast forward to 2023 and Cane Creek is still bringing innovation to the headset market. Their broad product portfolio now includes market-leading suspension products, bottom brackets, cranks, seat posts, stems and accessories. As an employee-owned company based out of North Carolina, Cane Creek sets the highest standards when bringing a product to market, operating by the guidelines they will only pursue a concept or innovation if they believe it will enhance the ride experience.
Founded in 2014 from within the workshop and retail environment, 13Industries aims at striking the right balance between price, quality and supply of bike spares in the South African market. Through our experience in the bike industry and pure passion for bikes, we have established a broad dealer network across South Africa. Alongside our brands of Cure Components, Millennium and Salve we also distribute brands like Marsh Guard, Burgtec, OneUp, All Mountain Style, H2Sport Drink and now, Cane Creek.
13Industries Founder Craig Paul – “We are very happy to be partnering with Cane Creek as the sole distributor in South Africa. Having been in the cycling world for many years, Cane Creek has been synonymous with providing the highest quality products straight out of their North Carolina factory, so to be partnering with them and distributing their range of products in South Africa to our network of bicycle shops around the country is very exciting.”
Dave Wysmuller, Director of Distribution Sales for Cane Creek – “Cane Creek is thrilled to announce its new partnership with 13 Industries, a leading distributor of premium cycling brands in South Africa.
