The Cane Creek Helm 27. 5 Boost Fork is poised to help you unlock new lines and allow you to completely dial in your ride with its stiff chassis, 3-way damper tuning, and air volume and travel adjustment. You'll quickly appreciate its super smooth stroke right out of the box as each fork is put on the dyno before leaving the factory so you can boost down water bar steps, carve steep switchback turns, and lay off the brakes through wheel grabbing rock gardens with the confidence knowing that your fork is up to the task. This particular model of the Helm is available with 100-to-170-millimeters of supple travel and sturdy, 35-millimeter stanchions that offer stiff and sure tracking, with refined air springs and a highly evolved damper that soaks up blown out trails and slick rock slabs alike.

The damper employs the same closed, bladder structure used by others in the industry, and for good reason, namely for its lightweight build and it offers consistent damping without the fear of cavitation on long, rugged descents. This damper tune comes from burning the midnight oil in the engineering department and exten...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
