Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115 (Backcountry Touring Ski 2023/2024)

Product Summary

The Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115 is the perfect tool during both downhill rides and steep ascents. Thanks to its low weight, the ski is easy to master even on longer trips. The Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115's full retail price is €1,000. The Ski costs roughly €390 more than the average price of all Backcountry Touring Skis, making it a real luxury Ski. Skilled skiers will enjoy both relaxed cruising and pushing the ski to its limit. The Helio Carbon 115 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. Available lengths for the ski are ranging between 177 and 185cm.

The ski in details

A powder ski with the chops for serious technical lines, the Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115 eats up deep snow far from the trailhead. Thanks to its pre-preg carbon fiber layup, engineered paulownia wood core and ABS sidewalls, the Helio 115’s dampness offers a smooth ride. The Helio 115 is light enough for remote expeditions and 10,000-foot days, with the torsional stiffness and smooth flex needed to charge through deep powder 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.

Technologies

Prepreg Fiberglass (Helio Carbon)
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 light weight 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.
