You don't need a coil to ride whistler. Air shocks are a lot more durrable than people think they are.

It might be just me but I've never even heard of helix making mountain bike shocks. I know they make car shocks but didn't know they made mountain bike shocks.

My vote is to stick with the DHX Air. I ride one and if set up right it can take some pretty big hits with no problem at all.

Oh and what bike do you want to which the shock out of. Just out of curiousity.

Stick with the DHX air. I don't like air shocks but it will be more than fine.
