Helio Fixed Length Carbon Ski Poles

Black Diamond isn't going to pair its brand-new touring and mountaineering ski collection with any old pole. New for this year, the Helio Fixed Length Carbon Ski Poles are just as lightweight and stiff as their namesake. An innovative inflation molding device makes these poles the lightest that Black Diamond has ever made. BD integrated an extended grip directly into the pole that helps you choke down on steeper ascents. Another new innovative to the Helio is a stiffened basket that has a hooking point for switching heel risers faster.

  • Black Diamond's lightest ski pole for touring and mountaineering
  • Inflation-molded carbon fiber keeps the pole resilient and stiff
  • Integrated grip and touring ring for choking up on the steeps
  • Stiffened basket with hooking point for switching hike levers

Very light, very fragile

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These feel too good to be true. And they are. Both my wife and I bought them and both our sets broke after a few uses. Mine broke while clipping out of my skis right above the tip. Her's broke right in the middle when she fell. I'd say they are good option for when you need the lightest gear, but then, when do you need the lightest gear and don't need it to work? Just don't bother.

Are my hands numb?

    These are so light weight that I'm convinced half the time they couldn't stop a frog from falling (I dont even know what that means). I would agree with Jason about putting grip tape on them, but not necessary.

    So Light

      Don't even feel real, get some grip tape though to put on the grips, otherwise lovin them!
