The Helio 105 is Black Diamond's ultralight ski for all-day skinning laps and adventurous, floaty, technical downhill performance. The Helio's pre-preg carbon fiber setup is for logging lots of vert under your belt in a single day, while boasting a very smooth flex pattern and is torsionally stiff for responsive edge work when the snow conditions surprise you with variability. Early rise in the tip and tail makes the Helio 105 one of BD's best flotation rides, and helps for the uphill trail breaking. The ABS tail protector also has a notch for your skin-clip to keep it secure.
