Liberty Helix Alpine Ski

Posted

Pros: Super pop and snap, lightweight, great in soft snow

Picked up a pair of these earlier this year at Alpine Sports in Boulder (http://www.alpinesportsoutlet.com/p-4497-liberty-helix.aspx) and man are they awesome! These things have the dimensions of the Gotama, but the snappy response of a much narrower ski. Great edge hold (a little chatter at speeds on super hard pack, but just as good as the Gotama).

Liberty Helix Alpine Ski
Description:

We gave Liberty a season to lock it down, and now we re proud to welcome the one-ski-quiver Helix into our lineup. This ski gets killer reviews from every angle, and with good reason it s great everywhere you take it, slashing down tight trees and straightlining tight chutes with equal ease, or even spinning 5 s on a quick lap through the terrain park. At 105 underfoot, the Helix is no waspy corduroy-cutter, and it s not a park/pipe ski, but the laminated bamboo core and angled traditional sidewalls keep it surprisingly light and poppy considering its ample figure. From choppy crud to groomers, and especially in powder, the Helix has that special something you don t see every season. Think sumo wrestler in space, killer whale on fen-phen, or helium-filled battleship, and you ll get a decent idea of how this ski performs. If you still aren t impressed, get this: the bamboo and poplar core is eco-friendly, and the company offsets all its energy use with wind power. Let s just say we like em a lot.
