Air, coil, up to 160 millimeters of travel and compatible with 29-inch/27.5+ wheels. Party on Wayne. Party on Garth. The HELM 29 is here.
The coil version is adjustable from 130 millimeters to 160 millimeters of travel, while the air version can be adjusted all the way down to 100 millimeters. Because who doesn’t want a fork that can work on both your cross-country hardtail and enduro full-suss? This isn’t really an all-new fork. We reviewed the HELM 27.5 not too long ago. The bigger-wheeled brother maintains all the same functionality--a closed cartridge monotube damper, seven-way adjustability, adjustable travel--but the offset has grown to 51-millimeters to match the ‘normal’ 29er standard.
Both the coil and air forks will be available in gunmetal grey, are boosted and retail for $1,100. Max tire spacing is 29 x 2.5 inches or 27.5 x 2.9. Weights are 4.6 and 5.2 pounds for the Air and Coil versions, respectively. The fork is available now.
