Liberty Helix Skis 2013

The Liberty Helix Skis retain the perfectly rockered tip they gained last year, but the tail has been flattened out for improved edging and uncompromising grip on those days when you aren't blessed with two feet of new. Even with all the praise the Helix continues to receive, Liberty improves them even more each year. But hey, what do you expect from a bunch skiers who get to design and build their dream ski in-house, and the test it out in their backyard? From the bamboo laminate core to the perfectly balanced Stealth Rocker, the Liberty Helix is exactly what you'd create if you had a ski press in your basement . . . well maybe after years of hard work and hundreds of prototypes.
Rocker Type
Stealth Rocker - A long, low top rocker with camber underfoot and a flat tail allow for easy turn initiation and incredibly versatile flotation without sacrificing edge grip or liveliness.
Flex
Mid flex in the tip and tail
Stiff flex underfoot
Core
Bamboo Backbone - Every Liberty ski features a hand-made, bamboo laminate core that is light, strong, lively and eco-friendly. Liberty fine tunes each core and flex pattern for the intended application, but each core starts with the strength and durability of bamboo to give a dependably energetic ride, time after time.
Laminates
Fiber Reinforced Polymer - Liberty uses sheets of this dense material under the binding area to increase screw retention and rigidity.
Quadaxial Glass - Liberty's custom weave S-glass creates tremendous torsional stability while allowing easy longitudinal flex to initiate turns and absorb terrain. Unlike bi- and tri-directional fiberglass laminates, this type of S-glass allows Liberty to fine tune the flex characteristics of each ski.
Sidewalls
78 Degree Sidewalls - This construction leads to increased edge grip and reduced weight. Sidewall construction is tough and affords the best combination of edge grip and turning ease.
Durathane - A polyurethane bumper smooths out the ride and protects against topsheet chipping.
Whitewall Sidewalls - This rugged and repairable sidewall material is made of UHMW, which is more resilient than ABS and can be repaired with P-Tex if you manage to gouge a hole in it.
Base
P-Tex 2000 - This sintered base provides speed and durability from the industry leaders.
Edges
HRC 48 - Liberty's specially treated edges feature a wider profile with larger anchors for greater durability and a longer lifespan.
Additional Features
Cab Forward Stance - Liberty's name for a progressive, more centered stance
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Big Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Bamboo
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
