Black Diamond Helio 200 Binding

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Engineered to provide security and power while ripping big mountain lines, yet light enough to handle massive vertical days, the Helio 200 is our backcountry touring binding built to handle it all. At 200 grams each, these bindings are crafted from premium aluminum alloys, titanium, and POM, and utilize an Easy Entry System, which consists of new toe geometry that optimizes the boot step-in, making it extremely reactive and powerful. The binding's Monolink Technology 1.0 keeps the Helio 200's ultralight, consisting of a spring-less toe arm on one side, which as a result creates a higher clamping stiffness-in-turn providing a secure connection when clicking in for a rip downhill.

The Black Diamond Helio 200 is feature-packed, fully capable, and fully awesome. It pairs well with everything from skinny skis and race-boots to big skis and four-buckle boots. If you want your ski binding to do a little bit of everything, then this is the one. Adjustable lateral and vertical release values mean you can dial in the system to your size and style. Two smooth-operating magnetic risers offer plenty of climbing prowess.

The Helio 200 R5-10 Binding is part of Black Diamond's new, ultralight binding line, and is ready to take on steep skintracks, long approaches, or fast powder laps before work. Weighing in at just over 14. 1 ounces per pair, you might not notice you have bindings on your skis as you crush steep ascents with impressive ease. To maximize efficiency on the ups, three heel riser options allow you to cater to the terrain, and when it's time to snap in your heel for the descent each turn feels secure and responsive, despite the binding's low weight. Instead of having just three release values like the other bindings in the Helio line, the 200 features values from five to 10 for reliable, customizable release.
