New Product: Cane Creek Helm Fork

Rockshox and Fox Suspension have been dominating the mountain biking sport especially in suspension, mostly fork. It doesn't mean that another suspensions are not good, but it's something hard to explain. But as the time goes, there are so many good competitors for those two, and they deserve to be worried. After the comeback of SR Suntour a while ago, and another forks like BOS, DVO, Manitou, and the recent, the moto-suspension Ohlins, now another new competitor is coming: Cane Creek Helm fork.
Yes, Cane Creek gets massive success with their shock, the DB range and now they are producing the fork. Not only usual fork, but really high end fork to give serious competition not only in the track but also in the market. The Cane Creek Helm fork will face againts, such as the Rockshox Pike, Fox 34 and 36, and also the Ohlins RXF.
