Helm MKII COIL 29

The Helm MKII is our first major revision of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way.

The Helm MKII includes a newly designed damper featuring 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.

Due to high demand and parts shortages, All Helm 29 forks are out of stock.

Accessory Free Travel Change

No additional accessories or parts are needed to change travel lengths on all Helm MKII Coil forks.

Updated Damper

The updated 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 Motorex damper oil reduce friction and provide a more supple ride-feel

SKF low-friction wiper seals

The fork includes low-friction SKF wiper seals on the castings. These seals are typically seen as an after-marketing upgrade on most suspension forks, however they are a stock feature on the HELM MKII.

HELM MKII

The HELM MKII comes in 29/27.5+ and 27.5 wheel sizes with both air and coil sprung versions available. The 29/27.5+ version of the fork is available in 51mm and 44mm offset and is adjustable from 130mm to 160mm of travel while the 27.5 fork is available in 44mm offset only and is adjustable from 130mm to 160mm of travel.

29/27.5+ models of the fork will come in a gloss black finish with matte black stickers and the 27.5 model will come in a matte black finish with gloss black stickers. Aftermarket sticker kits are available in brushed silver and gold.
