GRAV Helix Steamroller: Smoke if You Dare

Picture this: a steamroller that can filter smoke without water. Impossible? Then let’s have a look at the GRAV Helix Steamroller

Choose from different colors and sizes.

What is the GRAV Helix Steamroller?

The Helix Steamroller offers a different take on hitting dry pipes. This innovative engineering adds a touch of physics that improves your smoking experience and conserve flower.

Designed by Stephan Pierce, the dry pipe is made from a 25mm borosilicate glass tubing. There’s a push bowl for holding your flower as well as a front-and-center carb hole. Underneath the tubing is a pair of feet to keep it steady on a flat surface in between hits.

The GRAV Steamroller features a one-of-a-kind Venturi chamber mouthpiece. The chamber works by mixing air and smoke with the help of angled micro air vents. These vents allow air to go inside the chamber in a single trajectory. As you take a hit, both air and smoke spins together, forming a tornado that looks like a DNA Double Helix.

This Helix pipe hits you hard, strong, and fast. It’s like absorbing a hit from a shotgun, only you live to tell the tale. Mixing the smoke with air makes it easier for you to consume it in your lungs, allowing you to feel the effects of your herbs almost instantly.

Hits hard, but only cooler

The general word? The Helix steamroller can really hit you hard. If you’re the type of person who likes to have a feel what a Dooms Day hit would feel like, this hand pipe won’t disappoint. The added air filtration adds a level of cooling and smoothness that you won’t get from other steamrollers.

How to use the Helix Steamroller

GRAV made sure that using the Helix is easy and enjoyable.

  1. Load the bowl with your favorite ground herb. Don’t pack too lightly, or you’ll block the airflow. The Helix Steamroller is a pipe that has the easiest pull. If you’ve got flow restriction, it means you’ve packed the bowl too tight.
  2. Hold the dry pipe with one hand and covering the carb hole.
  3. Pull through the Venturi chamber mouthpiece and light up your herb.
  4. Increase or decrease your pull, depending on what you see on the chamber. A thin, slow-flowing smoke means you’re hitting too soft. A turbulent flow means you’re hitting too hard. When you see a Helix tornado inside the chamber, you’re hitting the GRAV pipe just right.
  5. Regulate the smoke by repeatedly releasing the carb hole.
  6. Once you’ve got your fill, let go of the carb hole and clear the pipe.
  7. Keep the smoke for 2-3 seconds before exhaling.

The Helix hit.

Cleaning your Helix Steamroller

The Venturi helps you filter smoke by pushing debris to the walls of your Helix glass. To make it easy for you to see the smoke action and enjoy clean flavors, you should clean your pipe regularly. To clean your smoking pipe:

  1. Tap out the used flower from the bowl, then let the pipe cool down before cleaning.
  2. Use a bristled pipe cleaner to scrub out any loose debris.
  3. Place the Helix pipe inside a Ziplock bag. Pour in enough 95% isopropyl alcohol to submerge the pipe entirely.
  4. Add a generous amount of salt, which will serve as a scrubber.
  5. Seal the bag and hold the pipe firmly.
  6. Shake it for 3-5 minutes to help loosen resin and allow the cleaning solution to reach inside the pipe.
  7. Leave it to soak for 15-30 mins. Take the dry pipe out of the bag and use a pipe cleaner to scrub inside the tubing. Soak again for 4 hours or overnight for stubborn dirt.
  8. Rinse the dry pipe under warm running water until you get all the alcohol out.
  9. Let it dry completely before using it.

The GRAV Helix Steamroller is not for the faint of heart. It’s a dry pipe that you use if you want to knock yourself out to near oblivion. It’s a cool party pipe to bring to challenge your friends who are expert smokers looking for a stronger, deeper experience. Beginners should stay clear of this beast as the rips can really tear you apart if you don’t know what you’re doing.
