Product Info

The Black Diamond Helio Recon 95 Skis are a new model that plays off the ultra-light Helio Carbon 95 from last season, but uses a slightly heavier Poplar core instead of Balsa/Flax and emphasizes skiing performance equally with the ability to fly up the hill. With slightly better edgehold on hard snow and stronger performance in crust and variable snow, the new Helio Recon 95 is designed as the touring enthusiast's every day driver.

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

Additional Features

ABS Tail Protector

Binding Compatibility

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