Cane Creek announces HELM 27.5 “Cherry Bomb” Fork

Cane Creek Cycling Components has announced the HELM 27.5 “Cherry Bomb”, a new limited edition of their popular HELM 27.5 fork. The fork takes its name from the iconic red fireworks and sports matte black lowers with a firecracker red metallic gloss crown and graphics. It’s available in both coil and air sprung versions however production will be limited to a total of 100 forks sold on a first come, first served basis.

“With the Fourth of July right around the corner, it’s time for riders to declare their independence from mass-produced suspension,” said Sam Anderson, product manager for Cane Creek. “The HELM 27.5 Cherry Bomb combines hand-built performance with a look that will light up the trail. This fork definitely makes a statement.”

Cane Creek’s HELM 27.5 has been widely praised for its outstanding performance and tune-ability since it originally launched in March of 2017. The company has recently followed up on the success of the HELM 27.5 with the release of the HELM 29 in April 2018 as well as several other new products including their premium titanium cranks, the eeWings.

Cane Creek is accepting orders for the HELM 27.5 Cherry Bomb beginning June 7 with the first forks shipping in July.
