The Cane Creek Helm MK2 air fork is assembled in North Carolina, USA and is ready to help you charge hard on any trail bike calling for 130-160mm of travel. One of the reasons we like the Helm so much at Somercycle is because of its unrivaled adjustability. You don't not need multiple air springs to run the Helm at different length travel positions, you just simply add or remove internal travel spacers. Thus, you can have 1 fork that can work well on a wide variety of bikes. 

This particular Helm MK2 is a 44mm offset, 29er and comes prepped at 130mm travel, but again can easily go from 130-160mm.
