Helm Chameleon

The Limited Edition Chameleon Helm MKII is available in our 29-inch wheel | 44mm offset platform with Cane Creek’s travel adjustable air spring pre-set at 160mm travel or Helm Coil with travel pre-set at 160mm. Looking to blend into the forest?  This unique earth-toned fork with color-shifting decals is the perfect addition to any custom bike build. Helm Chameleon includes Cane Creek’s bolt-on fender.



All of Cane Creek’s Helm forks are designed with modularity in mind, the Helm COIL fork does not require any additional items to adjust travel from 130-160mm and Helm AIR requiring only 10mm spacers to be used to change travel on any Helm AIR fork. The tunable independent positive and negative air chambers – along with the self-contained indexed volume adjustment system allow any rider to set up their fork for whatever their personal style or the trail requires.



Developed for all generation and size Helm forks.

Helm Fenders include custom designed stainless steel 5mm shoulder bolts for easy snap on installation.

All Helm Chameleon forks ship with a Helm Fender.

Name: Reed Mann
Position: Design Engineer
Year started: 2022
Best part of being a part of the Cane Creek family:  It’s very refreshing to work for a small, tight-knit company where we all share the same passions and to develop new products that make cycling better for everyone.
What you’ll find me doing on the weekends: Obviously riding bikes, but also wrenching on bikes or cars, exploring the mountains, and watching F1 races.
How I got here (at Cane Creek): Feeling pretty unfulfilled with a corporate engineering job, I happened to see that Cane Creek was hiring. I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands dirty working on the latest bike tech and was fortunate enough to be offered the position.
