The Helio Carbon 95 is a touring ski by Black Diamond.
The Helio Carbon range are backcountry skis. The skis are similar to the Helio Recon range that we already knew, but in a lighter version to be able to take on even more slopes. Available in several widths from 88 for long hikers on technical terrain to 115 for powder lovers in search of fresh powder.
The Helio Carbon 95 is the most versatile of the skis in the Helio Carbon range. It is designed for hikers looking for a ski with total versatility, just enough width to take advantage of fresh snow but not too much so as not to get too heavy and to be able to use it without regrets on the days when the conditions are not right
This ski has a Paulownia wood core reinforced with a carbon fibre structure and strategic fibreglass placement. This structure offers a progressive flex with good torsional rigidity for such a light ski. The ski also has ABS edges down the entire length of the ski. This provides cushioning and a more incisive and easy edge hold. Finally, the front rocker ensures good lift in powder snow, especially when making the first tracks in fresh snow

This is a very good, light and high performance ski for touring. Located in the middle of the Helio Carbon range, it knows how to make itself versatile by always remaining very light with very good downhill performance.
