Early rise in the tip and tail improves flotation and trail-breaking efficiency, and an ABS tail protector also has an integrated skin-clip tab to keep your skins from sliding off.

Helio 105 Carbon Ski is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all round ski I have 2 seasons of use on these skis now. They are great in all conditions from powder to heavier fresh snow to corn and icy conditions. The only annoying thing is the tip curvature is very low and it catches easily while skinning along icy sun cups. Hopefully future versions will add a little more curve to the tip to make it a 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still an amazing ski ...even with the tip shape I’m still skiing the original Austrian made Helio 105 and BD has just made them better. I have never had any problem with the tips diving under. Different stroke for different folks. Personally, I like ALL white skis so they keep snow away but I understand why BD shifted to carbon fiber raw-look tip versions in the new ones because they don’t ‘chip’ like the first white tip versions. I love the very stiff forefront skis because they drive much better at high speed. Softer skis seem to bounce back at me while the BD 105’s feel like an Audi car. As far as the critique about “low profile” tip troubles it might be you are using too short skis. The 177 is perfect for me and I’m only 150 and 5’7” and the ski rips in powder AND groomers. I tried the 165 versions and they did dive a bit. If they change the higher tip would change the turn at low and high speed. Don’t do it! Keep at it BD!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Troublesome tips I bought this ski to use as my daily driver. It's light and skis exceptionally well in all conditions. My only complaint however is the low profile tip shape. It catches very easily in depressions while skinning or skiing out bumpy trails. I am inclined to try mounting the bindings further back than the "backcountry recommend" to see if it alleviates this issue. It is unfortunate however because otherwise this ski checks all the boxes for a great, lightweight, all-round touring ski. Just wish it toured better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ski for long touring days! I been on this ski for three seasons now. I love it, it's a noodle, but skis great from crud to powder. It turns very easy in whatever conditions and is also great for the uphills. This ski is very light and allows me to do regular 6000ft+ days on it. I actually use it as a telemark ski and have a fairly heavy (1600g/pair) binding on it, but it still feels light and performs to my expectations. Sure it's not the strongest ski out there, but I'll take the cut in weight over longevity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tip Issue BD was supposed to FIX the tip issue several years ago when they came with the Helio models after the first year. The same problem still exist. I caught the tip a number of times and did a number of face plants. It is too bad because the ski has great potential if they fix the tip rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sks, and light too! I’m a BC ski guide and these are my daily drivers. Great ski for all but the most firm conditions, then I would recommend the Helio 95.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stoked on this Ski! Super fun ski! For a lightweight ski ideal for the uphill this little number skis variable conditions like a champ. Powder, wind crust, heavy warm glop not a problem. Number one travel ski in the quiver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great ski As the older model the Helios are a real all-conditions skis. You can tell the Austrian signature in these.
