Helm MKII Coil - Designed, Developed, Hand-Built By Riders
The Helm MKII is Cane Creek's first major revision of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. It 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.
The HELM MKII Coil includes all of the innovative features of the original HELM Coil fork including rider-adjustable travel which allows HELM MKII owners to change the travel of their fork at home with just a few common tools.
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.
Accessory Free Travel Change
No additional accessories or parts are needed to change travel lengths on all Helm MKII Coil forks.
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
