Overview READ MORE
The redesigned Helio Carbon 88 is a performance-based carbon fiber ski for those looking to move fast uphill and descend quickly through technical terrain. Combining an all-new pre-preg carbon fiber layup with an engineered paulownia wood core, this evolution of the Helio 88 results in a more balanced, damp, and confidence-inspiring ride without adding any additional weight.

The perfect backcountry ski for dawn patrol missions or all-day vert-racking tours through technical terrain, the Black Diamond Helio 88 shaves grams while improving the ski's downhill capabilities. The Helio's pre-preg carbon fiber layup is combined with an engineered paulownia wood core and full-perimeter ABS sidewalls for added dampness, while maintaining a smooth flex and torsional stiffness for reliable, responsive skiing on the way down. Early rise in the tip improves flotation and trail-breaking efficiency, and an ABS tail protector also has an integrated skin-clip tab to keep your skins secure.
  • Pre-preg carbon fiber layup offers improved dampness, torsional stiffness and balanced flex
  • Engineered paulownia wood core
  • Full-perimeter 5 mm beveled ABS sidewalls
  • ABS tail protector with integrated skin-clip tab
  • Titanal binding mounting plate
