Helio Carbon 104 Ski

The Helio Carbon collection of backcountry skis consists of Black Diamond's lightest planks for alpine touring, and the Helio Carbon 104 Ski is one of the most versatile in the bunch. The second-widest Helio Carbon, this ski certainly has a penchant for powder but can rip icy chutes or aprons with variable snow as well as powder. Black Diamond designed it with an early rise at the tip so you can navigate deep powder with ease whether you're on the skin track or the descent, and a bit of camber underfoot works with the slightly rockered tail to employ a versatile performance whether you're edging down icy couloirs or cruising spring crud. The Helio Carbon is made of light paulownia wood and a pre-preg carbon layup for increased stiffness at the lowest weight possible. Full-perimeter ABS sidewalls maximize durability and are easy to tune when you blow a side out on some shark hidden in the pow. The ABS tail protector has a clip-in for climbing skins, and a titanal plate adds binding retention underfoot for greater strength.
