Our Helio Carbon 104 is built for dawn-to-dusk backcountry missions where slashing powder stashes is the name of the game. Balancing playful, soft-snow performance with a lightweight build and technical precision for when conditions are variable, the Helio 104 features a pre-preg carbon fiber layup with full-perimeter ABS sidewalls for improved dampness and a smooth ride, while the engineered paulownia wood core keeps it lightweight for big vert days in the backcountry. The Helio also maintains a smooth flex and torsional stiffness for reliable, responsive skiing on the way down. Early rise in the tip and tail improves flotation and trail-breaking efficiency, and an ABS tail protector also has an integrated skin-clip tab to keep your skins from sliding off.

  • Rocker Type
    • 178 cm – 334mm Tip Rocker / Camber / 242mm Semi-Rocker Tail
  • 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.
  • Laminates
    • 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.
    • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Additional Features
    • ABS Tail Protector
    • Integrated Skin Clip Slot
  • Binding Compatibility
    • We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
