As the widest offering in Black Diamond's backcountry-oriented Helio line, the Helio Men's 116 Ski lives for the steep and the deep, especially when it's far from the trailhead. Weighing in at just over six pounds per pair in a 176-centimeter length, this ski is undoubtedly light enough for big missions, thanks to its engineered balsa flax wood core, but won't hold you back when it's time to drop. With a generous 116-millimeter waist and a rockered tip and tail, you'll be able to float through the deepest snow of the season with ease, and Black Diamond's redesigned pre-preg carbon fiber layup adds a damp, stiff feel that will inspire confidence in powder or inevitable variable conditions.
