Helm MKII AIR 29

HELM MKII

We are proud to announce the release of the new Helm MKII suspension fork.  The Helm MKII will be our first major revision of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way.

 

The HELM MKII newly designed damper features a new compression and mid-valve circuit for increased support and control while a new SKF oil seal head and 2.5 weight damper oil reduce friction and provide a more supple ride-feel.

 

The Helm MKII redesigned air spring has a new air piston designed to reduce friction, an increased air volume for better traction and suppleness, and a threadless seal head for easier travel change. In addition to the updated damper and air spring, the HELM MKII features a variety of external usability improvements including easier to turn knobs and a D-LOC bolt-on axle.

 

Silver and Gold brushed metallic Decal Kits are available here!

 

All Helm MKII Forks are assembled by hand in our factory in North Carolina.  Due to an increase in demand, some Helm MKII sizes have longer build times.  Contact us through our Support Center for any questions on availability.
