2022 Liberty Helix 84 Skis
Liberty Helix 84 Skis
The Liberty Helix 84 is a great all-mountain freestyle ski for younger riders who are looking to take their skills to the next level. This ski offers that signature lightweight feel from Liberty along with the capabilities to play around all over the resort. A light bamboo and poplar core add a lot of pop to the ski, giving it a very lively freestyle-oriented feel. Whether they're working on their first 540 or they're booting airs off of natural features, the Helix 84 lets Groms reach their full potential. Traditional camber underfoot allows the skier to stay locked into a turn, while a touch of early rise out in the tip provide easy turn initiation and some versatility for all-mountain skiing as well. Custom Aluminum tip and tail protectors keep things intact, because let's face it, younger rippers tend to have a lesser regard for the health and longevity for their equipment than the rest of us. The ultimate goal when taking your kids skiing is making sure they have fun, and a lot of that starts with the equipment. You want your kids to feel comfortable, confident and supported by their equipment, and the easy-going, responsive characteristics of the Helix 84 do exactly that. Whether you just want a fun all-mountain ski for your kid, or whether they want to start testing their abilities in the freestyle realm of the sport, this ski would be a great option.

I'm about 5 ft 135lbs east coast skier. I consider myself advanced on most slopes, but I'm just starting some freestyle skiing. I'm looking for a ski that is good for someone new to the park, has a low swing weight, good shock absorbtion, and a lot of pop. Right now I'm thinking about the helix 84 in 148 or the K2 Missconduct Jr. in a 149. Any suggestions on these skis or others?
Thanks for your advice!
I think the Helix 84 would be your better option, it is super light and responsive with the bamboo and it has a full sidewall which will give you a bit more stability. I think the missconduct jr. will be to soft and you will sacrifice a lot of stability at higher speeds. Hope that helps.
