A powder ski with the chops for serious technical lines, the Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115 eats up deep snow far from the trailhead. Thanks to its pre-preg carbon fiber layup, engineered paulownia wood core and ABS sidewalls, the Heli 115's dampness offers a smooth ride. The Helio 115 is light enough for remote expeditions and 10,000-foot days, with the torsional stiffness and smooth fex needed to charge through deep powder or variable crud. Early rise in the tip and tail improves flotation and trailbreaking effciency, 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.
