ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BRAIN) — Cane Creek Cycling Components has announced the release of a 29/27.5+ version of its HELM suspension fork, previously available only in the 27.5-inch size.
The HELM 29/27.5+ is available in both air and coil sprung versions with up to 160 mm of travel. The coil version is adjustable from 130 mm to 160 mm travel and the air version can be adjusted from 100 mm to 160mm.
“Over the last year we’ve heard loud and clear that riders on 29er and 27.5+ bikes want the opportunity to ride a HELM,” said Sam Anderson, product manager for Cane Creek. “More aggressive, big-wheel bikes are hitting the market every day and, with this fork, riders on those bikes will have the option for a 29/27.5+ fork that offers superb off-the-top compliance combined with the unmatched mid-stroke support and control that riders have raved about with the HELM 27.5.””
The original HELM 27.5 was released last March. All HELM forks are assembled in Cane Creek’s Asheville, North Carolina, factory.
