All the advantages.
While the ramping compression of air forks has a following in the masses, there's something to be said for the linear support of a coil fork. Small bump compliance never fails you, and you don't run out of that plush and forgiving feel, even when in the bottom millimeters. The downside is that it often comes at the loss of adjustability, but with the Cane Creek Helm Coil Tuning Spring you'll be able to adapt your fork with ease. The Helm Coil Tuning Spring allows you to choose between a 45lb, 55lb, or 65lb spring for a soft and supple feel, or firm and supportive fork, depending on your desires. Once you've figured out your perfect spring rate, the shock can fine tune its preload, with a 16-click dial on the top of the fork for the perfect feel. One of our favorite parts about coil forks comes through at this point — once its dialed in, it needs minimal maintenance apart from cleaning, so you can bomb trails full force without a worry in your mind.
