Product Info

Go ahead and book that guided trip to Hokkaido, and don't forget about your skis. Deep and light snow with nightly refills calls for a touring ski you don't often have a need for in other climates, and the Black Diamond Helio Carbon 115 Skis are one of the best options out there for a stick over 110mm wide that isn't an anchor on the skintrack. The guys at the factory in Mittersill probably laugh at anything over 105mm with a skin-clip slot in the tail, but be assured it's a thing, not just in Japan but anywhere in the western half of North America that gets the goods.

Core

Engineered Paulownia CorePaulownia wood is the material of choice when light weight is required, but compromising downhill performance is not an option. The stiffness and weight properties of paulownia wood make it the go-to material when using carbon fiber layups. Its slightly softer longitudinal stiffness allows for the use of stiffer carbon composites without compromising the flex profile of the ski. It has good compressive and shear properties, which allow for remarkably smooth and chatter-free ski performance at very low weight.

Laminates

Pre-Preg CarbonA blend of High-strength carbon fiber oriented along multiple axes combined with strategic amounts of high-strength E-Glass for toughness and damping, this layup is optimized for efficiency without giving up downhill performance. Toughened epoxy resin is added in precise quantities prior to ski manufacturing to ensure precise weight and consistent quality. This layup is ideal for any backcountry mission.

Titanal Binding PlateA high-strength metal plate is embedded underneath the composite layer to ensure that binding screw retention is never a concern. This plate also serves to increase torsional stiffness and provides a solid foundation underfoot.

Sidewalls

Full-Perimeter ABS SidewallsABS sidewalls wrap the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and damping. 5mm bevel for less weight and improved chip resistance.

Base

Sintered Graphite Base

Additional Features

ABS Tail Protector

Integrated Skin Clip Slot

Made in Austria

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
