Helio Recon 95 Ski

The Black Diamond Helio Recon 955 Ski styles the same backcountry-friendly design as the original Helio, except instead of a lighter carbon layup, Black Diamond used triaxial fiberglass for a beefier, stiffer feel. That's not to say it's too heavy for touring; this Recon model maintains a trim seven pound weight that's more than suitable for a long skin up steep mountains. It simply styles the same shape, sidewalls, and vibration-damping technology as the original Helio, except a stiffer flex and a poppier wood core make the Recon a more aggressive choice for laying down turns at faster speeds, and digging into firmer snow a bit better.
  • Beefier buildup of Black Diamond's Helio backcountry ski
  • 95mm waist is the most versatile Recon for firm and soft snow
  • Rockered tip and tail ease turn initiation in softer snow
  • Camber underfoot holds an edge on firmer snow
  • Poppy poplar wood core with pre-preg fiberglass for stiffness
  • ABS sidewalls add long-lasting durability season after season
  • Added damping technology borrowed from Helio's popular design
  • Item #BLD013O
