THIS IS THE YEAR TO GO REMOTE! BLACK DIAMOND ARE GIVING AWAY A PAIR OF THEIR BRAND SPANKING NEW TOURING SKIS – THE AWARD-WINNING HELIO CARBON 95!
With bold graphics, paulownia wood cores, pre-preg carbon fibre layups for improved dampness, torsional stability and balanced flex, the new Helio Carbon series are one good-looking, remote ripping bunch. The Helio Carbon 95 is the most versatile of this exploratory crew, hence why we gave it our One To Watch award in our top touring skis for 2021.
Black Diamond have tamed the carbon with full-length ABS sidewalls, with no compromise to that incredible weight. The ski has titanal inserts at the binding for stability and strength, and the wood of choice in the core is paulownia – one of our favourite mega-light woods popular for its predictability and composed feedback.
All this means that the Helio Carbon 95 skis more like an alpine rig than ever before so it will have you flying down the mountain with as much ease as you flew up to the top.
We reckon that 95mm is the sweet spot for a touring ski of this type, handling well in the skin track on long day or multi-day tours, while offering better edge grip and hard snow performance than wider-width tourers.
Stick a pair of light pin bindings on them and you’ll be over the hills and far away in two shakes of a chamois’ tail.
So, get online and enter for a chance to win a pair!
