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.

Technology

Prepreg Fiberglass (Helio Carbon)

LIGHTWEIGMHT PERFORMANCE This layup is optimized for efficiency without giving up downhill performance. This layup is ideal for any backcountry mission.

Engineered Paulownia Wood Core

Paulownia wood is the material of choice when lightweight is required, but compromising downhill performance is not an option. It has good compressive and shear properties, which allow for remarkably smooth and chatter-free ski performance at very low weight.

Full Perimenter ABS Sidewalls

ABS sidewalls wrap the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and Internal Core damping. Used on skis designed for maximum downhill performance and durability, but optimized for minimal weight.

2 Year Warranty

We trust what we make because we use what we make. All Black Diamond products are covered by a two year warranty policy.
