Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Touring. I have used the ski in varied conditions and found it extremely responsive, easy turning and easy on the legs. I found two issues with the skis. In dry powder, they are a dream, quick, responsive and stable. When there are damp conditions the skis easily get deflected. Secondly, I would like to see increase in tip rise there is no need to increased the camber. The current amount of tip rise causes the skis to submerge when trail braking and skiing in breakable crust. I hope the 2018-2018 model will have that feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tip Rise I mounted these with the Dynafit TLT superlite 2.0 and was beyond happy with the ~7 lb setup. I'm 6'5 200 lbs and skied the 183 cm (which is closer 185 cm when held next to similar skis). They ski very well for their weight and overall I'm happy with the purchase. 2 things I noticed skiing them was that the tip rise is low causing me to be more conscious of obstacles (dense snow) in front of me in the skin track. Also I mounted them at the suggested mounting point (furthest back) and this caused the tip of the ski to be slightly heavier than the tail causing more skinning woes--I fell forward a couple times. I appreciate the super light tails but I'm wondering if the tip would float a little higher if I mounted them +1 or +2. Just food for thought for prospective buyers. On the whole, I think the skis are an amazing feet of engineering and really appreciate the doors these lightweight skis are opening for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These have been my main skis for the last two years and every time I go out I think about how much I like them. They are a very well balanced ski for steeps, powder, corn and just about anything else. They are also incredibly well built and stand up to a good beating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Long Tours Bought these last month and mounted with the Dynafit Superlight 2.0. I'm 6'0, 170lb and ride the 183cm. Very maneuverable and responsive. Haven't skied it in powder but performs incredibly on the hard pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great agressive lightweight ski. I have to say I was not sure of the design of those skis at first. I'm an agressive skier, who feels in control on stiff and stable skis. Most of lightweight skis are not stiff enough for me, so I normally use freeride style skis with tech binding. For a ski mountaineering trip, I borrowed the Helio 95 from a friend. The objective was to ski steep lines around Mt. Katahdin. We had all sorts of strange weather from freezing rain to deep snow (25cm + of snow). I have to say I was surprised at the first turn. The Helio 95 is stiff and responsive. You really feel the support of the skis all the way during the turn. Those skis can easily navigate through wind affected snow and icy conditions. It's not a deep snow ski, it's not the weapon of choice for the dump of the year, but it works well over fresh snow and soft spring corn. Skiing Mt. Katahdin mean you have to make a 17 miles approach (the main reason why I borrowed those skis...). But the Helio95 are light enough to make it almost enjoyable. It's real backcountry skis, but with the capacity to ski like a great alpine ski.
