The Black Diamond Helio 145 is a rock-solid race binding that can be somewhat tailored to your size and aggressiveness. The binding is offered in three release-value settings and has three riser-heights to match your intended usage. Your choice of one of three predetermined release-values dictate the performance characteristics out of the box. The values are determined by a hidden lateral and swappable vertical heel-spring, both made of steel. The heel operates like a typical race binding with a flap covering the pins for uphill, but you can also spin the tower 180° to access a third, higher riser. Moving to the toe-piece, it had half of the wing-springs removed to reduce weight and complexity, but otherwise is a tried-and-true design that has the smoothest lever-action in the business. If you’ve never tried a race binding and are interested in having your mind blown, the BD Helio 145 is a great place to start.

  • Your choice of 6, 8, or 10 in release values, both lateral and vertical.
  • Roller bearings in the toe offer clean and crisp locking power.
  • MonoLink Technology 1.0 removed half the toe-springs without sacrificing performance.
  • Flat mode, heel-flap, and reversed heel-flap offer climbing versatility.
  • Optional crampon slot takes Black Diamond Helio crampons.
