Description

There's a reason this is Liberty's best seller.

The Liberty Helix Ski doesn't care which coast you live on; yeah, it loves the pow, but it also loves crud, ice, or slop. This baby floats and maneuvers well almost anywhere, giving you the lively playful pop that will remind you why you started loving skiing in the first place. The mid-fat 105mm waist provides a stable, predictable platform for blasting through crud or floating over powder, and it gives you plenty of real estate to land on when you punt that little cliff under the lift. Often, all-mountain skis give up torsional rigidity to achieve versatility, but the Helix is beast of a different breed. Sidewall construction and a lightweight but stiff and snappy bamboo laminate core ensures that you can drive this ski hard and it'll hang with you right to the bitter end.

Spit into the wind on a stormy day and you're undoubtedly going to hit a rockered ski, and the Helix is no different. Liberty's Stealth Rocker uses a longer rocker profile at the tip, traditional camber directly underfoot, and lower rocker at the tail. You can lean forward a little, pivot, and slarve a high-speed turn or two to dump some speed at the choke of a chute, and then float your way all the way to the exit. Who wouldn't want easier turn entry and a little extra buoyancy on a particular deep day? ...that's a trick question, the answer is no one.

Hi I am a 6 ft tall woman and I weigh about 150lbs. I ski in Alaska and the PNW. I've been riding 184 rosignol S7s. Which length helix do you think would suit me best?

Responded on

If you like the 184 Rossi S7, which has tip and tail rocker, then it will ski most like the Helix 182, because it only has tip rocker and no tail rocker.

Will not let you down!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been a supporter of Liberty skis since they arrived on the scene 10 years ago. A bit about me, 5'11'' 230 lbs, lifelong skier. As the title states the Liberty Helix will not let you down. I have put this ski through it's paces and it has always left a smile on my face. This ski will rail
on the groomers, float through the powder, and blast through the
crud. It is a fun, lively, and durable ski. This ski has also helped access the goods on many hut trips and backcountry lines. The skis are light and tour like a champion. If you are looking for a nimble, strong ski, that does it all the Helix is right up your alley!

Everyday workhorse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Im a patroller in the Rockies and these are my everyday all mountain skis. Energetic and lively, they can hold an edge in all conditions and float nicely when there is some new fluff on the ground. They have spent alot of time in avalanche terrain before it is open to the public and have proven to be very durable in thin rocky conditions. Great all around ski.

Quiver of One

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you can only buy one ski, this is the one. I find myself on the Helix just about every day all winter. It does everything I want it to. Perfect width for anything from the deepest pow to hardpack and even bumps. The light weight makes it easy for me to shoulder them and hike. They are also super nimble in the tightest of trees. If I could only ski one ski for the rest of my life, this would be it.

The one ski to rule them all

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're a one-ski-quiver kind of person look no further; this is your ski. Big enough for shredding powder, poppy and responsive enough to ski the whole mountain, and charging enough to lay over some serious and fun turns on those hardpack, high pressure days. The Helix is my go-to ski for everything from competing to mellow pow days and it hasn't let me down once. This may actually be the most perfect ski ever made.

I'm super impressed with how durable the Helix is. I'm not nice to skis and these skis hold up season after season. Once I'm finished charging hard during the winter I turn them into spring touring skis. This is, with all honesty, the best ski I've ever owned. I trust it enough to get me out of some tight spots in big backcountry lines and it can edge like a race ski when you're challenging your friends to an amiable competition to the bottom. From first chair to last chair, dawn patrolling, and the occasional sled mission these skis have carried me to all the best places because they're simply the best ski out there. If you want a ski that can literally do it all you can't go wrong with the Helix. No regrets. Buy it immediately.

I fell in love with Liberty Skis after my first pair and knew I'd never own another brand. These have been my favorite skis for every condition for 2 seasons now! They have the perfect amount of stiffness, flex and pop. On groomers, there's no comparison, they can straight line it at top speeds or make the most beautiful turns at whatever speed or condition. They never feel unstable or like they'll ski away without me. In powder they give me the perfect amount of float while still allowing me to get in deep for some face shots. The thing I love most about this ski is that on days where I want to rip as hard and as fast as I possibly can, these skis kill it and then some, never feeling too stiff, or to soft and noodly. On the other hand, on days where I want to goof around, jump off things, make big 'ol turns, throw in some spins and twirls, these skis are chill enough to hang with me while I play! Oh, and the colors ... Bodacious!

Love Liberty Skis and love love love the Helix!
