Cane Creek Cycling Components is proud to announce the release of the HELM MKII Suspension Fork. The HELM MKII is the first major revision of Cane Creek’s HELM fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. 

Cane Creek Helm MKII 29/27.5+ Air Fork

The HELM MKII newly designed damper features a new compression and mid-valve circuit for increased support and control while a new SKF oil seal head and 2.5 weight damper oil reduce friction and provide a more supple ride-feel.

The Helm MKII redesigned air spring has a new air piston designed to reduce friction, an increased air volume for better traction and suppleness, and a threadless seal head for easier travel change. In addition to the updated damper and air spring, the HELM MKII features a variety of external usability improvements including easier to turn knobs and a D-LOC bolt-on axle.

SKF Seal

The fork also includes low-friction SKF wiper seals on the castings. These seals are typically seen as an after-marketing upgrade on most suspension forks, however they are a stock feature on the HELM MKII.

The HELM MKII also includes all of the innovative features of the original HELM fork including a tokenless air volume adjustment design, independently adjustable positive and negative air chambers on the air spring, and rider-adjustable travel which allows HELM MKII owners to change the travel of their fork at home with just a few common tools.

Cane Creek Helm MKII 29/27.5+ Air Fork

The 29/27.5+ version of the fork is available in 51mm and 44mm offset and is adjustable from 130mm to 160mm of travel.

The 29/27.5+ models of the fork will come in a gloss black finish with matte black stickers. Aftermarket sticker kits are available in brushed silver and gold.
