Kids Park/All Mountain
Gear Buddy Opinion
The Helix series was designed to be versatile enough to handle any terrain from the park to the peak. The 84 was designed for smaller skiers who want to shred in the park and out.
If you’re a 5”3’ lady shredder like myself, finding a decent park ski can be a bit of a struggle. Everything either seems way too long or pinked-and-shrinked to a point well past embarrassment. Well not these skis! I chose the helix 84 based on the brand (love my genesis 96’s) and the sick topsheet design. I was a little worried about how a youth ski would hold up to my aggressive jumping and jibbing in and out of the park, but those worries were baseless. These skis rip. I’m landing 180s off kickers and wind rollers without even thinking about it. I’ve taken some tumbles that might have snapped a comparable ski. These “skinny skis” even held their own in the trees on a surprise pow day. Don’t sleep on this one, petite skiers! The helix 84 is for you!
