Build your perfect ride

"The bottom-out resistance proved to be invaluable when hitting steep, sharp turns where the majority of my weight was over the front wheel. Resistance deep into the travel meant I could corner harder and faster than when riding a fork that blew through its travel."

The helm coil fork is one of the best purchases I have made. Very little weight difference and quiet. Very easy to set up. I will run these from now on

5/5

Came from a Fox 36 Fit4 Factory, and the Helm coil is in a completely different and buttery universe. Personally not noticing the weight difference, and as stiff as I need for any Bay Area trail I'm hitting . Any perceptible loss in efficiency while mashing uphill all goes away when using momentum on the trail or when heading down. Stoked.

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.
