Black Diamond Helio Carbon 104 (Backcountry Touring Ski 2023/2024)

Product Summary

Due to its lighweight construction the Black Diamond Helio Carbon 104 is easy to handle not only downhill but also during longer ascents. The Black Diamond Helio Carbon 104's full retail price is €900. The Ski costs roughly €290 more than the average price of all Backcountry Touring Skis, making it a real luxury Ski. This ski is just right for good skiers. Stable but not overpowering. The Helio Carbon 104 is a pure freeride ski. Riding on groomers is no problem but due to its fairly wide waist the ski has a strong bias towards powder runs. The ski is available from 160 to 184cm.

The ski in details

Built for any backcountry mission where slashing powder is the name of the game. The Helio Carbon 104 balances playful, soft snow performance with a lightweight build and technical precision for when conditions are variable.

The Helio Carbon 104 is built for dawn-to-dusk backcountry missions where slashing powder stashes is the name of the game. Balancing playful, soft- snow performance with a lightweight build and technical precision for when conditions are variable, the Helio 104 features a pre-preg carbon fiber layup with full-perimeter ABS sidewalls for improved dampness and a smooth ride, while the engineered paulownia wood core keeps it lightweight for big vert days in the backcountry. The Helio also maintains a smooth flex and torsional stiffness for reliable, responsive skiing on the way down. 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 from sliding off.

Weight: 2,76kg/Pair @ 172cm
