I ended up sizing them for downhill. My go to with adjustable poles are 130-135cm on the up and 125cm for the down. The Helio's only come in 120/130 and I went with the 120's. They've been great and I haven't noticed a difference except for how dang light they are. This was my 2nd season on the pair so well over 100 days and they continue to go strong and surpass my expectations. I'd get em again, for what thats worth.
On cold days, this is the best $30 you could ever spend. Super easy to use, they hold up really well, and boy do they make a difference in warmth. I've been using them with my Alien RS for the coldest days and my feet have been oh so comfy. #worthit #shouldhaveboughtyearsago
These are my go 2 for any new boot or shoe! Classic and they just work for my feet. My feet, knees, and back appreciate the investment every time.
When things get STEEP and FIRM, these are the technical tools you'll be wishing were in your hands. I believe they are one of the lighter technical tool offerings - they climb steep snow and even technical ice extremely well. I have left my Petzl Nomics at home several ice climbing trips b/c the North Machines swing effortlessly and with surgical precision. I bought a pair without the hammer/adze and then purchased an extra pick with the hammer attached. It's a quick n' easy swap if I think pounding in pito...
This tool blows my mind! So dang light, yet very capable. One of my main touring partners likes to venture into the unknown which in the Wasatch can require the need to hammer in pitons for decent. My goal was the lightest snow tool option with a steel head for driving in pins. Bam! This is it. Legit.
