Black Diamond Helio Carbon 88 skis are perfect for experienced skiers who prefer high altitude and highly technical slopes with hard snow. This ski reduces grams while improving the ski's downhill ability. The Helium pre-impregnated carbon fiber layer is combined with a designed paulownia wood core and full perimeter ABS sidewalls for increased moisture, while maintaining smooth flex and torsional rigidity for reliable and responsive downhill skiing. Early tip elevation improves flotation and road efficiency, and an ABS tail guard also has an integrated leather clip tab to keep your skin safe.

- Pre-impregnated carbon fiber arrangement provides increased moisture, torsional stiffness and balanced flexure
- Full perimeter 5mm beveled ABS side walls
- ABS rear protector with integrated leather clip tab
- 88 mm technical skate with early shooting tip
- Optimal use: 30% soft snow / 70% hard snow
- Glidelite Mix Helio Carbon pre-cut skins (skins not included)
- Engineered paulownia wood core
- Titanal Binding Mounting Plate

- Lightweight Performance Carbon:
A mixture of high-strength, multi-axis oriented carbon fiber combined with strategic amounts of high-strength E-glass for hardness and damping, this arrangement is optimized for efficiency without sacrificing downhill performance. Hardened Epoxy resin is added in precise quantities before the manufacture of the skis to ensure precise weight and consistent quality. This design is ideal for any mission in the field.

- Titanal Mounting plate:
A high-strength titanium plate is embedded under the composite layer to ensure that fixation screw retention is never a concern. This plate also serves to increase torsional rigidity and provides a solid base under the feet.

- Internal Core Dampening:
Elastomeric materials are strategically placed within the ski to improve shock absorption and edge control. These layers serve both to absorb high frequency vibration and to allow some cutting between the inner layers, improving both performance and durability.

- Wood Core:
Paulownia wood is the material of choice when light weight is required, but compromising performance on the slopes is not an option. The stiffness and weight properties of paulownia wood make it the reference material when using carbon fibre in the boards. Its slightly softer longitudinal stiffness allows the use of stiffer carbon composites without compromising the flex profile of the ski. It has good compression and shearing properties, which allow for remarkably smooth and chatter-free skiing performance at a very low weight.

- ABS Sidewalls:
The ABS side walls wrap around the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and shock absorption. Used on skis designed for maximum performance and durability on the descent, but optimized for minimum weight.

- PTEX 4500 Base:
Accepted by the industry as the premier base material, this sintered UHMW-PE base provides very high density for excellent durability and wax retention, combined with high carbon content for superior slip.
