Helm DJ

Built by us – Built for us.

The versatility of the Cane Creek HELM continues with the new HELM DJ.

The new Cane Creek HELM DJ combines the proven performance, reliability and strength of the HELM MKII’s chassis with a new short travel air spring optimized for Dirt Jumps, Dual Slalom and Street riding.

Preset at 90mm travel and a 483mm axle to crown to accommodate a 26″ wheel without changing the geometry of your dirt jump bicycle. 

HELM DJ IS 15mm X 110mm BOOST SPACING. Additional adapter kits may be required for compatibility.

Handbuilt By riders

Combined with the proven strength and performance of the Helm MKII chassis, and optimized for dirt jump, dual slalom, and street riding applications. 

“We built this fork because we wanted to ride Helm’s on our dirt jumpers, and it’s freaking badass” – Sam Anderson, Brand Manager.

Helm DJ Air Volume Assembly

Our new Helm DJ air volume assembly (right) is a fixed air volume setting for 90mm of travel, unlike our standard air volume reduction assembly (left) for Helm MKII where air volume is adjustable.

Travel Reduction

Helm DJ’s are preset to 90mm of travel. Utilizing five large travel reduction spacers (black) and three standard Helm MKII travel reduction spacers (red) we are able to optimize the travel and air volume for Dirt Jumping applications.

Helm DJ Setup Recommendations:


Air Pressure – Between 95 and 125 psi based on rider weight and sag / ride height preference.

Rebound – Between 5 and 10 clicks from closed due to the increased air pressure.

Design Engineer
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.
