Black Diamond HELIO Backcountry Touring Skis

The development of alpine touring (ski mountaineering) gear has reached new heights, producing incredibly specialized equipment that can put far-off peaks within reach of determined enthusiasts. Choosing the right equipment for the job is absolutely critical.

The new Helio series of skis were made to offer the very best of performance in the backcountry. Straight out of Blizzard’s works in Austria, this new Black Diamond series of skis replaces the Carbon Convert, Carbon Aspect, and the Megawatt, combining the best attributes from all three of these legendary skis into one new platform. The result is a very lightweight solution that provides efficient climbing prowess combined with stellar downhill performance similar to that of a freeride ski. No compromises were made in performance, in spite of the very lightweight construction. The secret lies in the lightweight balsa wood and flax wood core, combined with a full carbon layup. Stable and bombproof downhill skiing have never been combined with such a lightweight package.

Serious backcountry skiers and fans of ski mountaineering owe it to themselves to check out this new line of skis and discover the best the backcountry has to offer.
