    FS: BD Helio 116 186cm, Dynafit Radical Toe/Speed Turn Heel, BD Skins $600

    Price reduced to $600 shipped

    Black Diamond Helio 116 Ski, 185cm. Used maybe 40 days last season. Skis are in good condition, bases have only a few minor scratches, no core shots or edge damage. There are a few minor cosmetic scratches and chips on the topsheets. See the photos.

    Dynafit hybrid binding: Radical toe and Speed Turn heel. I think this is the most solid combination of Dynafit components. The toe has a 6mm shim from the Radical FT binding to reduce ramp angle. Bindings are mounted for 317mm BSL.

    Skins are Black Diamond Mohair Mix. Center strip has been removed.

    This is a super fun, lightweight powder touring setup.

    Asking $600 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. Paypal preferred.

    If anybody wanted the skis and skins I might be interested in the bindings.

    either way i'd love to see what OP's pricing breakdown is if split. Whole package seems spendy to me. I know the skis new are like $850, but thats full retail. The skis topsheets look a little beat up. Skins look older (maybe its just the camera or cameraman/woman), and I figure the bindings are maybe worth $250, probably less around here.

    Nah, the skis and skins look fine besides the couple tiny tip chips.

    It's not easy finding that model ski as much of a discount, I looked for almost a year before giving in and coughing up the money. At 1,650g it's the lightest fat ski out there, and it's made in the Blizzard factory. It's made to BD's specs so it's not actually a "ZeroG 116", but close enough.

    The top sheets have two chips near the tips and a few scratches but are otherwise normal for the use theyve received. Skins were new last year, standard BD mohair mix.

    Its a bit spendy to put together a Radical/Speed Turn combo and not easy to track down the toe shim depending whos answering the phone at Dynafit. Some wont appreciate the hybrid but many would be psyched.

    Was thinking something along the lines of:

    Skis $375
    Bindings $200
    Skins $75
    Shipping $30-50

    Seems reasonable to me but Im willing to entertain fair offers.

    At this point not willing to sell separately unless a couple buyers join forces.

    FYI Really like this set up but concerned the lighter boots I got this year wont be enough to drive them and also need to pay for said boots.

    Ok my apologies. That breakdown seems.resonable for what appear to be a hard to find ski.

    I was aware they are made by blizzard.

    Bump.

    You skied yours yet? What bindings you put on them?

    Not many reviews out there. Pretty sure I've seen Brittany/MBSC's review, and Blister.

    Picked up a pair of 186 length this Spring, so still in the plastic. Was worried that 186 might be too long, but expected them to be on softer side so I went long for use with overnight pack.

    Just got a pair of used 178 Lotus 120's, so don't know what the hell to do now. Lotus 120 is 200g heavier but stiffer, tough call...

    Pretty sure the la sportive vapor float is lighter by a fair bit, wider too.

    That's a square deal for sure.
