Helm MKII 29 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.

TAKE CONTROL ON THE TRAIL

The Works Series Helm beats out the competing fork with a stiffer chassis, giving riders more control through chundery sections of trails and rock gardens. This fork is the perfect do-all for riders who regularly ride XC and occasionally rip on more technical and challenging terrain.

HAND-BUILT IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA

Every single Helm fork is designed, built, inspected, tested and packed by a dedicated team of suspension professionals at our facility in Fletcher, North Carolina. Our suspension team’s attention to detail is illustrated in our three step Dyno testing, ensuring that our hand built products reach high standards of precision and performance.

This process includes: 

  • Individual Damper Assemblies compression and rebound verification.
  • Helm Chassis validation of the spring and damper
  • Final hand dyno to ensure quality and supple feel.

5/5

Recently replaced the stock fork on my 2024 Trek Fuel Ex 9.8. Not going to lie, initially I just wanted a bougie upgrade to go with my new Tigon.

So stoked that I pulled the trigger on the Helm Coil. Insane small bump compliance, better mid stroke and bottom out support than the stock fork. Huge thanks to Andy for the chroma studio touches. The Helm is not only an absolute unit, it looks freaking great too!
