The premier ultralight powder ski for untracked lines, steep faces, and technical objectives in deep conditions, the Helio 116 features a pre-preg carbon fiber layup that makes it extremely light while maintaining stiff , progressive flex and hard- charging performance.
At Black Diamond, we build skis for the backcountry. From the beginning, our focus has been on that sublime and natural space where everything is up to you. Our design philosophy focuses as much on the climb as the descent, resulting in real tools that perform in real conditions. Black Diamond offers skis tailored to the full range of backcountry ski conditions maximizing uphill efficiency and downhill performance. The 2016 collection is our most refined collection yet, offering the lightest weight, highest-performance skis made to tackle big lines and variable conditions deep in the mountains.
