    The Helm is the plushest fork I have ridden. I was amazed at how adjustable this fork is and how easily I can adjust the travel. The negative chamber leaves no questions on equalizing air. And the ride? AMAZING! So much fun and so plush in every environment, but especially when things get rowdy! Not satisfied with your current setup, don’t hesitate giving the Helm a go. You won’t be disappointed!

    My favorite fork. I run one at 160mm on my enduro bike and one at 130mm on my hardtail. Easy to set up, feels burly and responsive and isn’t fiddly.

5/5

Love this fork. Very plush, supple off the top, without sacrificing the progression for bigger hits and compressions. Whenever I go back to my Lyrik, my hands hurt in a way they never do on the Helm Mkii. Guess I will need to buy another for my 27.5 bike. My only complaint would be the weight, at 1950grams it is heavy for a 130mm fork, when a Fox 34 Factory comes in around 1750. The finish on the Galaxy limited edition is exceptional.
