Helio Recon 105
Gear Buddy Opinion
The Helio Recon series was designed to handle the abuse of touring year after year and at an affordable rate. The 105 version weighs only 1620g making it a great daily driver that can handle deeper conditions as well as variable conditions that are frequently encountered in the back country
This is the damper, slightly heavier version of black diamonds 105 width touring skis. Although the carbon helio version is lighter with the carbon contruction, I like how this build feels better. I like the shape, it is easy to carve turns at the resort, and skis powder pretty well. Even in heavier, wetter, consolidated powder, it does just fine.Read more about review stating Very nice touring ski I have a fritschi vipec binding on it and I love the combo. I mounted 3cm behind the recommended (BC) line and I am very happy so far.
