The perfect backcountry ski for dawn patrol missions or all-day vert-racking tours through technical terrain, the Black Diamond Helio 88 shaves grams while improving the ski's downhill capabilities. The Helio's pre-preg carbon fiber layup is combined with an engineered paulownia wood core and full-perimeter ABS sidewalls for added dampness, while maintaining a smooth flex and torsional stiffness for reliable, responsive skiing on the way down. Early rise in the tip improves flotation and trail-breaking efficiency, and an ABS tail protector also has an integrated skin-clip tab to keep your skins secure.
