Built around an engineered Paulownia wood core with a pre-preg Carbon layup, the Black Diamond Helio Carbon 95 Skis balance long-haul lightness with plenty of guts and stiffness to get you down in style. The 95mm waist is a great choice for those who mix full winter touring with spring and summer missions and extended traverses, and the early rise tip rocker provides a surprising level of float in variable snow conditions.

Black Diamond Helio Carbon 95 2024 Skis Core
Engineered Paulownia Core – Paulownia wood is the material of choice when light weight is required, but compromising downhill performance is not an option. The stiffness and weight properties of paulownia wood make it the go-to material when using carbon fiber layups. Its slightly softer longitudinal stiffness allows for the use of stiffer carbon composites without compromising the flex profile of the ski. It has good compressive and shear properties, which allow for remarkably smooth and chatter-free ski performance at very low weight.
Black Diamond Helio Carbon 95 2024 Skis Laminates
Pre-Preg Carbon – A blend of High-strength carbon fiber oriented along multiple axes combined with strategic amounts of high-strength E-Glass for toughness and damping, this layup is optimized for efficiency without giving up downhill performance. Toughened epoxy resin is added in precise quantities prior to ski manufacturing to ensure precise weight and consistent quality. This layup is ideal for any backcountry mission.
Titanal Binding Plate – A high-strength metal plate is embedded underneath the composite layer to ensure that binding screw retention is never a concern. This plate also serves to increase torsional stiffness and provides a solid foundation underfoot.
Black Diamond Helio Carbon 95 2024 Skis Sidewalls
Full-Perimeter ABS Sidewalls – ABS sidewalls wrap the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and damping. Used on skis designed for maximum downhill performance and durability, but optimized for minimal weight.
2024 Black Diamond Helio Carbon 95 Skis Base
PTEX 4500 Base – Industry-accepted as the premium base material, this sintered UHMW-PE base provides very high density for excellent durability and wax retention, combined with high carbon content for superior glide.
