Black Diamond Helio Ski Crampons

Purists may try to avoid using ski crampons and rely instead of skinning technique or boot-packing, but there are times when ski crampons are the most efficient travel option. Maybe you’d rather avoid wallowing through breakable crust. Maybe you don’t want to slip and slide on glazed slopes with exposure below. Maybe your objective lies on the other side of the most slippery skin track in town with nary another route in sight. Whatever the case, ski crampons belong in every backcountry skiers’ pack. The Black Diamond Helio Ski Crampons are menacing and their bite is fierce, giving you peace-of-mind. They are perfect for devouring slippery vert and accessing hard to reach areas. They work with Black Diamond Helios and other bindings with Dynafit-style crampon receptors.

Jonathan S (used product a few times)
I have the 86mm model. I bought them for an 84mm ski width, but they also work just fine with another ski that has a stated 87mm waist. I've used them ATK/BD bindings, but I also test-fitted them in the more basic slightly bendable crampon clip that came with older Plum bindings and the Dynafit LTR/SSL. Fit is fine, slides in relatively smoothly, and comes out with the right amount of ease.
Compared to my Dynafit 90mm crampons, the attachment bar is very similar. The teeth look more aggressive, although too many variables to test them in the field to see if their grip is any better.
The little carry bag they come with is light enough to use in the field, although I've always just packed them around other gear.

Question from Eric
Are these compatible with the dynafit speed radical toe adapter?
Answer from TSB
Hey Eric, you got it! The BD ski crampons (manufactured by the Italian cognoscenti at ATK) pair well with any of the crampon adapters from Dynafit, including those on the Speed Radical.

Question from JJP
does the 86mm fit the Helio 88?
Answer from Teddy Young
Unfortunately, it would not fit! Try the 97 or a 90mm Dynafit.
