Black Diamond Helio 1161735.99 2479.99
Our premier ultralight powder ski for untracked lines, steep faces and technical objectives in deep conditions, the Helio 116 features a new pre-preg carbon fiber layup with improved dampness for a smoother ride while remaining extremely light with stiff, progressive flex and hard-charging performance.
An ultralight powder ski with the chops for serious technical lines, the Black Diamond Helio 116 ski eats up deep snow far from the trailhead. Thanks to its redesigned pre-preg carbon fiber layup and ABS sidewalls, the Helio now has improved dampness for a smoother ride. The Helio 116 is light enough for remote expeditions and 10,000-foot days, with the torsional stiffness and smooth flex needed to charge through deep pow or variable crud. Early rise in the tip and tail improves flotation and trail-breaking efficiency, and an ABS tail protector also has an integrated skin-clip tab to keep your skins secure.
