HAND-BUILT IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA
The Helm MKII is our first major update of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. Hand-built in Western North Carolina and rigorously tested and developed in the Appalachian Mountains.
Featuring an updated damper design with new compression and mid valve circuits, a new SKF oil seal head, and Motorex 2.5 weight damper oil. All of these elements work to reduce friction and increase sensitivity.
