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.
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.
Mid flex in the tip and tail
Stiff flex underfoot
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.
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.
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.
P-Tex 2000 - This sintered base provides speed and durability from the industry leaders.
HRC 48 - Liberty's specially treated edges feature a wider profile with larger anchors for greater durability and a longer lifespan.
Cab Forward Stance - Liberty's name for a progressive, more centered stance
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
