Description

The perfect ski for high-altitude descents or any dawn-to-dusk day in the backcountry, the Black Diamond Helio 88 shaves grams without sacrificing performance. The Helio’s improved pre-preg carbon fiber layup with ABS sidewalls adds dampness for a smoother ride and it’s extremely light for long approaches and technical ascents. The Helio 88 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 secure. These Skis feature minor cosmetic flaws that in no way affect their performance use or safety; typically there is a blemish in the top sheet.
