Build your perfect ride


Tuning your suspension starts with dialing in your spring.  The independent positive and negative air chambers – along with the self contained indexed volume adjustment system allow all Helm air forks to be set up for any rider and any style.  

The Helm MKII air spring has a redesigned air piston which increases air volumes and reduces friction, greatly improving traction and suppleness on trail.   The threadless seal head and manual negative air charge button designs allow for easy travel setting adjustments and the ability to properly set up riders of all different sizes and abilities. 

  • Indexed Air Volume Adjustment (No tokens) 
  • 30psi Minimum Operating Pressure
  • Tunable Negative Air Spring
  • Internally Travel Adjustable 


Every single Helm fork is designed, built, inspected, tested and packed by a dedicated team of suspension professionals at our facility in Fletcher, North Carolina. Our suspension team’s attention to detail is illustrated in our three step Dyno testing, ensuring that our hand built products reach high standards of precision and performance.

This process includes: 

  • Individual Damper Assemblies compression and rebound verification.
  • Helm Chassis validation of the spring and damper
  • Final hand dyno to ensure quality and supple feel.

"Mixing incredible levels of control, impressive levels of small-bump sensitivity and bucket loads of adjustability leaves the door wide open when searching for that ultimate set up."

– Jim Bland, World Cup mechanic

Will the DB Kitsuma Air, in the factory provided size fit a 2022 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO (S3)? If it is compatible, what fork could I pair with it? What hardware do I need for a successful install? Thanks! Alexander Davis asked on March 28, 2024

Hello, please email us at and we can help you with your rear shock and fork fitment questions. Thanks!

Will changing the travel setting on the helm mark II affect the head tube angle? Does it effectively raise and lower the bike or just it just reduce how far the suspension will compress? David asked on October 2, 2023

It does both... It will change how much travel your fork has obviously. But reducing travel will steepen your head angle while increasing travel will slacken the head angle. This will also affect your BB height so consult your frame's manufacturer to make sure you can adjust fork travel.

If you are in Canada, beware the shipping. They use DHL and I was charged 50% of my total order value as “duty fees” on arrival. Other than that, the shock works good. Factory tune is really good as well. Even though it’s not a downhill recommended shock, I did take it for a park day just to see. The oil definitely gets the shock warm to the touch, but not hot enough to hinder performance and dampening. My only complaint is that dirt and dust somehow gets into the coil seat and makes a really loud squeak, haven’t figured out a solution aside from taking the coil off and cleaning it after long rides. The progressive coil feels very supportive on big hits.

Prior to buy these forks, I read some reviews about Cane Creeks paint being not up to standard with blemishes out of the box and easily chipping. I wanted to get these anyway because I love supporting American brands when able and these were on sale. The forks I purchased did come with some minor blemishing and I did manage to chip the paint installing the fender. Also, the steerer tube didn’t cut as cleanly as previous forks I’ve cut but that could just be me. Obviously this doesn’t affect ride quality and they ride good enough. Definitely would not buy these at the $1,100 price point they are usually in. Even at $659 I think you can find the Marzochi Z1, RS Pike, and Fox 36 Elite sometimes under that. All 3 of those options I think provide a better bang for your buck if you can find them similarly priced and you don’t mind supporting foreign companies. Just my opinion and all this is very subjective.
