- The Black Diamond Helio 350 is a downhill-oriented, freeride-style alpine touring binding that comes in a lightweight package. The Helio 350 includes a slew of design features that tailor the binding towards fast and demanding skiing, but still weighing in at a reasonable 350 grams. This binding is ideal for anyone that values safe and dynamic tech bindings.
The binding is manufactured entirely from aluminum alloy and stainless steel, creating a remarkably durable product that will hold up to years of use/abuse. The Helio 350 toe piece features a wide mount pattern for better power transmission, an integrated crampon receptor, and 4-spring tech toe. The heel unit features FIVE magnetic riser height positions, an integrated ski brake, elastic travel to maintain a constant release value, and 30 mm of binding adjustment. There is a lot of going on here for such a compact and svelte piece of equipment.
The Helio 350 is a fully-featured alpine touring binding that is built to last. It's for freeride charging, safety-conscious touring, or backcountry skiing that doesn't skimp on binding functionality. Next time you are wanting a bombproof binding that can handle just about any level of downhill skiing, look to the Helio 350.
