The Helm 29 Boost Fork represents Cane Creek's foray into the high-end fork market, and is designed for discerning riders wanting a stout, highly-adjustable alternative to the other big brands on the market. With a variety of smooth travel options ranging from 100mm to 160mm, and burly 35-millimeter stanchions, this fork is plush throughout its stroke and has a stiff chassis that delivers precise tracking in rough terrain, an ideal setup for aggressive riders challenging their limits on technical trails.

Cane Creek realizes that no two rides or riders are alike, so this damper gives you the wide-ranging ability to tune 10 and 17 clicks of high and low-speed compression, with an additional 10 positions of low-speed rebound adjustment so you can dial in the ride to your terrain, style, and weight. In addition, the air spring has independent positive and negative chambers that allow you to tune the fork for a super supple initial stroke, or for a more supportive overall ride quality. While some brands used to offer dual-air chambers as a means of further adjustment and the ability to tweak how plush the fork felt off the top of its stroke, many have abandoned it in the name of simplicity and cost savings. We've been fans of it for years and are sad to see it go, so it...

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.
