Build your perfect ride

HELM AIR MKII

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 

HAND-BUILT IN NORTH CAROLINA

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

Q & A

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.

Recently replaced the stock fork on my 2024 Trek Fuel Ex 9.8. Not going to lie, initially I just wanted a bougie upgrade to go with my new Tigon.

So stoked that I pulled the trigger on the Helm Coil. Insane small bump compliance, better mid stroke and bottom out support than the stock fork. Huge thanks to Andy for the chroma studio touches. The Helm is not only an absolute unit, it looks freaking great too!

Un-freaking-believable! I purchased this for a 2024 Trek Fuel Ex 9.8. I found the stock shock harsh on small bumps and chatter.

I expected some trade offs moving to the Tigon. I’m happily disappointed in that expectation. I have not encountered a situation where the Tigon has not out performed the stock shock. Climbing? Loads of traction and support. Jumping? Controlled pop for days! Descending? No surprise here…buttery smooth. Pumping? This thing should work at a gas station.

Add face melting customer service from Andy to this legendary shock performance and I’ll be happily riding Cane Creek suspension for years to come!

The air Il in far better than the top brand I used to turn to, it increased the joy factor of riding in the woods. That’s what it come done to quality performance.
