The Helix Dawn mattress is a hybrid foam-spring mattress that is very comfortable and is excellent for spinal support.

By Editorial Team | 16th January 2019

The Helix Dawn mattress is part of the range of Helix Sleep mattresses. The company believes that mattresses should be customized for the individual, but the Helix Dawn mattress promises to deliver support for back, stomach and side sleepers. The mattress is made from dynamic foam, a type of memory foam developed by the company. In addition to mattresses, Helix Sleep also produces a range of bases, pillows, and sheets that will complement the mattress. They recently revamped their entire line of products taking into account the previous four years of customer support, and they now have a better offering than ever before.

Mattresses and Pricing

The Helix Dawn mattress is made using the company’s own memory foam, which they call ‘dynamic foam’, together with high-grade polyfoam and pocketed micro coils. The Dawn mattress is firm and has extra support for contouring in all sleep positions. This means that it has no sink or give but will still feel comfortable under your body. Furthermore, thanks to the breathable two cover design, there is an increased airflow that helps to keep the top of the mattress cool.

The top of the mattress is a top cover layer with stretch and a soft touch together with a lower cover layer that allows for airflow and breathability. This is followed by the comfort layer made of Helix Dynamic Foam, a latex-foam hybrid alternative that is designed to react and contour to your body. Next is the transition layer that is made from high-grade polyfoam. It provides ergonomic support and cushioning, and has a higher IFD to match your body type and provide extra support. Under that is the Body Shape Layer. This is made of hundreds of individual wrapped coils that help to cradle your body while limiting motion transfer; it also has a reinforced perimeter to provide edge support. Finally, there is a base layer made of DuraDense Foam and this provides support and durability to the entire mattress.

Those concerned about chemicals in the mattress have no need to worry. Helix Sleep mattresses are all CertiPUR-US and Oeko-Tex certified. This guarantees that the materials are free of toxic particles and chemicals. A new mattress may have a slight smell, but this is from the packaging used to protect it during shipping and the smell will disappear in just a few days.

The Helix Dawn mattress can deliver many health benefits, especially to those who experience pain in their necks, shoulders, lower back and so on. The foam will contour to these points to relieve pressure and allow them to recover. Furthermore, Helix have worked hard to reduce the temperature of their mattresses and this will also help recuperation and ease aches and pains. In fact, many have rated the Helix Dawn mattress as one of the best for helping with back pain. This is due to the layering of the mattress that is optimal for consistent spinal alignment throughout the course of the night.

Comfort Guarantee

The Helix Dawn mattress comes with a 100-day sleep trial. If after the first 30 nights of sleeping on the mattress you feel as if it isn’t the right one for you then the company will send an extra comfort layer to make the bed softer or firmer for free. If this still doesn’t solve the problem then you can return the mattress and receive your money back.


Helix Dawn mattresses are covered by a limited 10-year warranty that is valid only for the original purchaser. The warranty covers defects in the mattress, such as if the foam or spring material splits or cracks despite normal use and proper handling. The warranty covers a great deal, but obviously nothing caused by deliberate misuse of the mattress.


The Helix Dawn mattress is part of the company’s new range of products so there is not much information about its actual lifespan. However, the company expects the mattress to last for at least ten years when treated properly and covers this entire period with its warranty. The mattress needs very little care, it should not be flipped due to its layered construction and Helix say that there is no need to rotate it.

The top cover of the Helix Dawn mattress is removable and can be machine washed, and this is all the special care that the mattress should need. To extend the mattresses lifespan it should be placed on a suitable foundation, and one with slats that are no wider than 5 inches apart.


The Helix Dawn mattress is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a firmer mattress. The mattress is extremely well made and will provide you with comfort and support regardless of your sleeping position. Furthermore, thanks to the hybrid nature of the mattress, it is particularly good for those who suffer from back pains. Thanks to the 100-night sleep trial, you can purchase the Helix Dawn mattress safe in the knowledge that if it does not suit your needs you can return it and receive a full refund. Therefore, if you are looking for a new mattress, the Helix Dawn is certainly one to consider.
