HELM Works Series 130

Select Bike to Check Fit

SUSPENSION OPTIMIZED.

Owners of short-travel bikes like the Yeti SB100, Giant Trance Advanced Pro, Santa Cruz Blur, and Trek Top Fuel rejoice! You now have a HELM fork option for your shorter travel bike.

 

The HELM Work Series 130 is equipped with all-new, enhanced parts including a hollow anodized shorter offset crown, bolt-on D-Loc axle, high speed compression Climb Switch, and optimized internals including both a shorter compression rod and damper rod. However, the HELM Works Series 130 shares the same 35mm stanchions as the HELM 27.5 and HELM 29 forks, making it stiffer than its competition. The optimized features of HELM Works Series 130 bring 100 grams of weight savings over HELM Air 29.
