It was impossible to miss the new Cane Creek Helm suspension forks at Sea Otter – mostly because of the color. In a smart bit of marketing, Cane Creek gave a number of the new forks a chartreuse yellow paint job which made them stick out in the crowd.

Now, with Sea Otter in the rear view mirror, Cane Creek decided that they should offer them up for sale. However, rather than just pocketing all of the money, they decided that $500 from the sale of each fork should go to someone worthy, like IMBA. We’re a bit behind on this one, but if you’re looking for a truly limited version of the Cane Creek Helm, this is your chance (if you act fast)…

Initially limited to just five forks, Cane Creek tells us that there are just two left. Priced at $900, the slightly  used demo forks are being sold for $200 off retail, but with a finish that will probably never be offered again. That, and you can feel good about over half of the sale going to IMBA for mountain bike related advocacy work. As mentioned, just two forks remain, so if you want one – head over to the Cane Creek site below, check out the fine print, and get on it!


  • All 5 forks are lightly used but have been throughly inspected*
  • Pre-cut 200mm tapered fork steerer
  • Pre-set 160mm of travel (Optimized for 140-170mm of travel / Spacers included)
  • Pre-installed 110 Series crown race
  • HELM top cap included

Marketing doesn’t equal free stuff.
