Helix Pipe: For Smoke Light As Air

Smoking a dry pipe like a spoon or steamroller can be too strong for some. The heavy experience is obvious, especially for those who started with a bong. Water pipes like bongs and bubblers can help soften the harshness of smoke by filtering out combusted material. You also get cooler smoke because of the heat transfer between smoke and water. However, to much water can dull the flavor of your herbs as some can get filtered out. For a smoker who wants the full smoking experience minus the wetness, the Helix pipe is the perfect companion.

What is a helix pipe?

The Helix Pipe is an innovation in glass created by Boxfan, a glass artist under the world-famous Bob Snodgrass. The concept and design started at around the 1990’s, with its fame rising by 2000. Boxfan dedicated his time and skill in creating the American Helix. The products soon became one of the top-selling brands in the market. You can no see several Helix pipes

The Helix Glass is one of the iconic smoking device that is a combination of design, engineering, and science. The secret of the design lies on the Venturi chamber, a compartment that is more than just for visual.

The Venturi Chamber works in two ways. One is it regulates pressure increasing the speed of travel of smoke for an effortless draw. Another is through the mechanism of micro vents added at the base of the chamber. If you look closely at the vents, you’ll see that they are angled towards the wall. This will cause the air to spin with the smoke, creating a helix tornado effect.

There are many designs for you to choose from that will help you get that unique and cool sesh.

We love the Helix bong because it utilizes two elements to filter and cool down your smoke: water and air. You can get it in a beaker style or striaght tube with a perc at the bottom.

Aside from the Venturi chamber, the helix spoon has a unique bowl. Instead of going straight down, the push bowl is angled forward toward the carb hole. The result is a smooth, cool smoke that you think would be impossible to get from a spoon.
