First impressions are very good. Good small bump sensitivity but with a very tunable mid-stroke. The high and low speed adjustments make for meaningful changes with aids in the set up. At 140 mm, this helm has dramatically improved my ride for my ibis ripley V4.

5/5

Helm MKII was purchased to pair up with the Cane Creek AIR IL that I have on my REEB SST.
I purchased the 150mm but I’ve also ridden the 140mm version. This shock is the best riding shock I’ve ridden, it has a great small bump damping effect but can handle the big drops and jumps with ease.
Definitely take time out to learn about how to set up this fork, it functions differently than other forks.
My only criticism is the price point and only because I feel many other riders would choose this shock if the price comparison was better when weighing it against FOX or DVO.
Even with the price I’d recommend this fork without hesitation.

Fork made a big change to my bike. I had a Fox Rhythm on it. No control over bottom out. The Helm solved that and gave a much plusher ride.
