The Helio Carbon 104 balances playful, soft-snow performance with a lightweight build and technical precision for when conditions are variable. It has improved dampness for a smoother ride due to its pre-preg carbon fibre layup and full-perimeter ABS sidewalls and 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 secure.

Technologies

Prepreg Fibreglass (Helio Carbon): LIGHTWEIGHT PERFORMANCE This layup is optimised for efficiency without giving up downhill performance. This layup is ideal for any backcountry mission.

Titanal Mountain Plate: A high-strength metal plate is embedded underneath the composite layer to ensure Glide and Durability that binding screw retention is never a concern. This plate also serves to increase torsional stiffness and provides a solid foundation underfoot.

Engineered Paulownia Wood Core: Paulownia wood is the material of choice when lightweight is required, but compromising downhill performance is not an option. It has good compressive and shear properties, which allow for remarkably smooth and chatter-free ski performance at very low weight.

Internal Core Damping: Elastomeric materials are strategically located within the ski to improve damping. These layers serve both to absorb high-frequency vibration and also to allow some shear between internal layers, improving both performance and durability.

Full Perimeter ABS Sidewalls: ABS sidewalls wrap the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and Internal Core damping. Used on skis designed for maximum downhill performance and durability, but optimised for minimal weight.

PTEX 4500 Base: GLIDE AND DURABILITY Industry-accepted as the premium base material, this sintered UHMW-PE base Internal Core provides very high density for excellent durability and wax retention, combined with high carbon content for superior glide.
