Black Diamond Helio Recon 105 Skis 2021

The new Black Diamond Helio Recon 105 Skis add a little weight and significant power and stability to last season's Helio 105 Carbon. The Balsa/Flax core is replaced with one of light Poplar and the mostly carbon layup with pre-preg fiberglass, but the weight is still reasonable and the ski performs better in the variable conditions that are all too common in the backcountry.

Core

Poplar Wood Core

Laminates

Pre-Preg FiberglassHigh-strength E-Glass fiber is oriented along multiple axes and optimized to provide a smooth and consistent flex profile, longitudinal strength, and torsional stiffness. Toughened epoxy resin is added in precise quantities prior to ski manufacturing to ensure precise weight and consistent quality. This layup is engineered to minimize weight for uphill missions without sacrificing durability or downhill ski performance.

Sidewalls

ABS Sidewalls

Sidewall Damping SystemTo bring the dampness of a freeride ski to a lightweight backcountry construction, Black Diamond employed a layer of rubber in the sidewalls of the ski slightly behind the contact point. This innovative construction greatly reduces chatter in firmer conditions and allows BD to forgo the use of metal in the layup.

Base

Sintered Graphite Base

Binding Compatibility

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