Brett Garrettwrote a review of Black Diamond Helio Recon 105 Ski on January 26, 2020
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the damper, slightly heavier version of black diamonds 105 width touring skis. Although the carbon helio version is lighter with the carbon contruction, I like how this build feels better. I like the shape, it is easy to carve turns at the resort, if necessary, and skis powder pretty well. Even in heavier, wetter, consolidated powder, it does just fine. I have a fritschi vipec binding on it and I love the combo. I mounted 3cm behind the recommended (BC) line and I am very happy so far.
