Cane Creek announces special-edition eeBrakes, coil sprung fork and low-profile headset at Eurobike

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Cane Creek Cycling Components is releasing three new products at this year's Eurobike show: a coil-sprung version of the company's HELM suspension fork; a special El Chulo edition of its eeBrakes caliper road brakes; and the Slamset headset for riders seeking a low stem position.

Cane Creek will also produce a new version of its Ergo Control bar ends, which the company has not sold since 2015.

"Cane Creek has always been about giving riders product that allows them to ride the way they want to ride," said Brent Graves, the president and CEO of Cane Creek. "There are riders who love the unmatched traction of a coil fork and people who prefer the infinite adjustability of an air fork, now they have both options from Cane Creek. Likewise, there are riders who love the performance and light weight of the eeBrakes, but they want to express themselves a little bit and show some color. Giving riders options to ride their bike their way is what these products – and all of Cane Creeks products – are all about."

The company noted that it has now launched 10 new products in 2017, including the original HELM Air 27.5 fork and the DBair IL shock.

The new HELM Coil fork is available for 27.5-inch wheels. The company said the enduro riders increasingly favor coil springs, in park because fork chassis weight and overall bicycle weight have decreased over the last few years. The HELM Coil 27.5 is optimized for 130 to 160 millimeters of travel, with the ability to be internally adjusted by changing the location of the spring perch.

Ther El Chulo Edition eeBrakes retain the same stopping power and ultra-light weight of the eeBrakes, with a splash of color. They are anodized in a blue, gold and silver colorway and will be produced in a single, limited run in regular mount pairs (front and rear) only. Orders will be limited to Aug. 30 through Sept. 15, with delivery in November.

The Slamset was developed for riders seeking to lower their handlebars to stack heights as low as 2 millimeters without compromising bearing seal and proper preload. The headset also includes Cane Creek's new Hellbender bearing, a heavy-duty stainless steel sealed bearing.
