Product Info

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.

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.


Sintered Graphite Base

Binding Compatibility

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