Helm MKII COIL

The Helm MKII is our first major revision of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way.

The Helm MKII includes a newly designed damper featuring 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.

29 inch Helm forks come in a gloss black finish with matte black stickers and 27.5 Helm forks will come in a matte black finish with gloss black stickers.

All forks are built to order by hand in our facility in North Carolina, USA. Ā 

Features

Fully Revised Damper Tune

  • New compression and midvalve circuit for increased support and control
  • New SKF low friction oil seal head cartridge
  • High performance damper oil from Motorex

New SKF low friction wiper seals installed in the castings.

Reed Mann

Design Engineer
Name: Reed Mann
Position: Design Engineer
Year started: 2022
Best part of being a part of the Cane Creek family: Ā 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 youā€™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 corporateĀ 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.
