Description

The Helio Recon 88 is the classic, workhorse touring ski for the dedicated backcountry skier aiming for multi-day hut trips, classic traverses, or ski mountaineering objectives. The 88mm waist, rockered profile with camber underfoot, and short turning radius inspire confidence and control as snow conditions harden. Made in Austria, the poplar wood core and ABS sidewalls, combined with dampening technology borrowed from the award winning Helio construction, deliver a smooth, powerful ride. The Helio Recon 88 emphasizes touring and ski performance while withstanding season after season of abuse. 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.

  • 88mm waist and short turning radius excel in hard snow conditions
  • Rockered tip and tail and traditional camber underfoot
  • Made in Austria with a poplar wood core and ABS sidewalls
  • Added dampening technology borrowed from award winning Helio construction
  • Optimal Use: 30% soft snow, 70% hard snow
