    WTB: 178 helio 104/105

    I got some zero g 105ís for a fat mountaineering /spring setup, and Iím not inspired by the tails. More rocker and less power than I hoped. Helio looks flatter, and lighter too. If youíve got 185ís Iíd consider that as well, and trim with the angle grinder 🤠

    Hmmm, Iíll read up on them. Pretty flat tail? Stiff/good edge hold? Price?

    I've got a pair of 178s with one ski that's deformed and has extra-early early rise... You can have them for free if you can find another single 175 to combine with my single good one or if you want to ride them wonky. I posted some photos here: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...05s?highlight=

    I can take some pictures tonight, but pretty flat

    I find they are stiff

    Do you want binding?

    Thereís a set of helio 105s at the local consignment shop in a 185cm for $174. I didnít check to see if theyíve been there long enough to haggle, but the bases looked great. They looked like they were probably cosmetic blems, some of the carbon you could see through the clear topsheet section was a little imperfect.

    Looked like 1.5 or 2 mounts, but a decent amount of room between holes.

    Let me know if youíre interested in more info.

    Climber Joe, Thanks for the thoughtfulness- Iím going to check out a buddies 185ís this week and see how practical it would be to chop em down. Will get back to you after- also, your inbox is fullÖ

    I have never heard anyone say good things about the Helio 104/105 skis. I use the Dynafit Beast 108 in that slot but it may be too rockered for your preferences. I have friends who like the Scott Superguide Freetour and Atomic Backland 107.

    Hey thanks everyone; I think cutting down 185ís might not be ideal, and 178ís havenít turned up. I might just keep trying with the zero g and get better at skiing. Thanks for the efforts though .
