Quick Overview

Helix is a mattress and bedding product manufacturer that offers a wide selection of hybrid beds, most of which were introduced in 2018.

The brand’s current lineup includes the following standard hybrids:

  • The Helix Sunset, Helix Midnight, and Helix Twilight are constructed with three main components: a 2.5 PCF memory foam comfort layer, a high-density polyfoam transitional layer, and a pocketed coil support core reinforced with a high-density foam base. These three mattresses also come with dual-sided polyester covers. Each one measures 10″ thick. In terms of firmness, the Helix Sunset is ‘Soft,’ or a 3.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale; the Helix Midnight is ‘Medium’ (5.5); and the Helix Twilight is ‘Firm’ (7).
  • The Helix Moonlight, Helix Dusk, and Helix Dawn feature comfort layers made of 2.45 PCF ‘Helix Dynamic Foam,’ a proprietary material made from a blend of synthetic latex and polyfoam. These beds also feature high-density polyfoam transitional layers, pocketed coil support cores, and high-density foam base layers, as well as dual-sided polyester covers. They each measure 10″ thick, as well. The Helix Moonlight is ‘Soft’ (3.5); the Helix Dusk is ‘Medium’ (5.5); and the Helix Dawn is ‘Firm’ (7).

Additionally, these six standard hybrids are available in ‘LUXE’ designs. The LUXE models are built with a pillow-top layer for extra padding and a gel memory foam comfort layer; a second comfort layer of memory foam or Helix Dynamic Foam is also included. Other components include a high-density polyfoam transitional layer, zoned pocketed coil support cores with multi-gauge coils, high-density foam base layers, and dual-sided polyester covers. Each LUXE hybrid measures 14″ thick, and each model shares the same firmness as its corresponding standard hybrid:

Helix also offers three specialty hybrids:

  • The Helix Nightfall is specifically designed to accommodate larger, heavier individuals. The mattress is constructed with comfort layers of 3.75 PCF Helix Dynamic Foam and 4 PCF memory foam, along with a high-density polyfoam transitional layer. The mattress also has a pocketed coil support core, high-density foam base layer, and dual-sided polyester cover. It measures 12″ thick and is considered ‘Medium Firm’ (6).
  • The Helix Dual Balanced is a dual-firmness mattress made for couples with differing comfort preferences. Once side of the mattress is ‘Soft’ (3.5) and the other is ‘Firm’ (7). Both comfort layers are constructed from 2.5 PCF memory foam, followed by a high-density polyfoam transitional layer and a pocketed coil support core reinforced with a high-density foam base. The Dual Balanced measures 10″ thick.
  • The Helix Dual Extra is another dual-firmness model for couples. It shares the same configuration, general construction, and thickness as the Dual Balanced; the only major difference is that the memory foam comfort layer is swapped for a layer of 2.45 PCF Helix Dynamic Foam.

Because Helix offers a wide range of thickness and firmness options that accommodates most sleepers regardless of their weight or sleep position. The mattresses also sleep very cool, due in part to strong air circulation through the coil layers. Conforming ability varies by model, but most Helix hybrids contour closely and consistently for added pain/pressure relief and better spinal alignment for side sleepers. The beds also isolate motion fairly well and do not make much noise compared to other hybrids.

Standard and specialty Helix hybrids have price-points that are much lower than that of the average hybrid, while LUXE models have more moderate prices. Helix offers free shipping anywhere in the U.S. Each mattress is also backed by a 100-night sleep trial; standard and specialty models come with 10-year warranties, while LUXE models come with 15-year warranties.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

The Helix Sunset has an expected lifespan of about six and a half years, which is typical for hybrids with softer comfort layers.

Motion Isolation
Good

The Sunset's soft foam comfort and transitional layers absorb and minimize motion transfer to a noticeable extent.

Conforming
Good

As you can see, sleeper ratings for Helix hybrids vary by model. The softer options have earned the highest ratings from sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds – particularly side sleepers, who often need soft, contouring layers for better spinal alignment. The firmer models – especially the Helix Nightfall – earned the highest ratings from sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds, including back and stomach sleepers who typically prefer surfaces that do not contour very closely.

Our testing process found Helix mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You would like to buy a hybrid mattress at a below-average price-point
  • You tend to sleep hot
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You prefer mattresses with average to above-average thickness profiles

Trial Period and Guarantee

Helix Sleep offers a 100-night sleep trial for all mattress owners.

  1. This sleep trial includes a 30-night break-in period. Customers may not return their mattress until at least 30 nights have elapsed.
  2. Customers who are not satisfied with their mattress after sleeping on it can request a new comfort layer from Helix Sleep at no extra cost, which will make the mattress softer or firmer (depending on the request).
  3. Helix offers exchanges for mattress sizes, but not firmness settings.
  4. Once a refund has been issued to a customer, it will take roughly five to seven business days before the money shows up in their account statement.
  5. All returned mattresses are recycled or donated to charity.

Warranty

Helix offers a 10-year warranty for all standard and specialty hybrids, and a 15-year warranty for all LUXE hybrids.

  1. Both the 10-year and 15-year warranties are completely nonprorated.
  2. Helix will, at their sole discretion, repair or replace all mattresses with defects for as long as the warranty is valid.
  3. Helix mattresses are designed for use on ‘a firm, solid-surface, on a bed base that is structurally capable’ of supporting both the mattress and the sleeper(s). Failure to utilize a proper foundation may result in denied warranty claims and/or a voided warranty.
  4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Deterioration in the sleep surface that causes indentations measuring 1″ or deeper.
    • Physical flaws in the mattress that cause the material to split or crack despite proper use and foundational support.
    • Manufacturing defects pertaining to the cover, including the zipper.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • A ‘normal increase’ in the softness of the sleep surface that does not affect its pressure-relieving abilities, or indentations that measure less than 1″. These are both considered standard wear and tear.
    • Repair or replacement requests that occur due to changes in the owner’s personal sleep preferences, such as mattress height, firmness or bed weight.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of damage caused directly by the owner./h6>
  6. Customers who wish to return a defective mattress must ship the item to Helix at their own expense and include a copy of the original proof of purchase. If the mattress is deemed defective, Helix will reimburse the owner for up to $100 of these shipping charges.
  7. Customers have the option of exchanging their current mattress for an upgrade model. In this case, the customer will pay the difference between the original model and the upgrade. Upgrade models will receive new limited warranty coverage that extends for 10 years after the customer has received their upgrade. Most customers receive their upgrade mattress within 90 days of returning their original model. Replacement mattresses that are not upgrades will follow the same warranty coverage as the original model.
  8. Warranty coverage is non-transferable, and is exclusively offered to the original purchaser. Anyone who acquires or buys a Helix mattress from the purchaser or a third-party mattress retailer will not be eligible for warranty protection.

How Do Helix Mattresses Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Helix mattresses stack up to other beds.

Helix offers a wide selection of hybrids that vary in terms of thickness, firmness, and material construction. As a result, the brand’s lineup caters to most sleepers regardless of their body type of preferred sleep position.

Softer models like the Sunset and Moonlight, as well as the dual-firmness Dual Balanced and Dual Extra beds, are optimal for sleepers who prefer softer comfort settings, such as lightweight people and side sleepers. The remaining hybrids may be more suitable for heavier people, including back and stomach sleepers. All Helix hybrids excel at temperature neutrality and edge support. They also isolate more motion and produce less noise than most competing hybrids.
