Black Diamond Helio 145 Binding

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Black Diamond Helio 145 is a rock-solid race binding that can be somewhat tailored to your size and aggressiveness. The binding is offered in three release-value settings and has three riser-heights to match your intended usage. Your choice of one of three predetermined release-values dictate the performance characteristics out of the box. The values are determined by a hidden lateral and swappable vertical heel-spring, both made of steel.

The Helio 145 is built for backcountry skiers who demand ultralight bindings that can handle big lines. Featuring a mix of premium aluminum alloy, stainless steel, and POM, the Helio 145 is a high-performance binding that utilizes an Easy Entry System-consisting of new toe geometry that optimizes the boot step-in, making it extremely reactive and powerful. Also unique is the 145's Monolink Technology 1.0, which consists of a spring-less toe arm on one side, in-turn creating a higher clamping stiffness in addition to lowering the overall weight to 145 grams each.

Weighing in at 10. 2 ounces per pair, you might even forget you even have bindings on your sticks when you're crushing long, steep ascents. Three riser options allow for maximum efficiency, whether you have a long, flat approach ahead or you're setting a steep skinner, and when it comes time to click in your heel and choose your line, you'll find that these bindings are there for you through every turn. Three release value settings let you customize to your aggressiveness and weight, and a lateral and vertical heel spring keep the values consistent so you can focus on your line and not worry about whether or not your bindings will release.
