The 105 is the fattest ski in the Helio lineup (except for one that is too fat). With the ample waist, it’s obviously more of a powder hound than the 88 and 95. That said, the ski has the same construction and dampening system found on the other skis in the line that make hard snow not just bearable but fun. The Helio 105 is a good option for a one-ski quiver for folks that hunt for powder on their daily adventures. It’s also good for ski mountaineers that like to ski fast and aggressively down variable conditions, and prefer the extra float and rocker provided by a bigger platform. The ski can handle what you throw at it, while not being too heavy on the approach. A solid ski for solid lines.

  • Balsa flax wood core is laminated with carbon-fiber for good torsional stiffness and stability.
  • Sidewall Dampening System has integrated rubber behind the heel for hard snow performance.
  • Rockered tip and tail and a generous waist let you float in powder and stay above the chop.
  • 5mm ABS sidewalls offer good rock impact protection and improve edge hold on the steeps.
  • Titanal binding reinforcement plates are the latest in lightweight mounting security.
