The Black Diamond Impulse 104 Skis are the perfect all-mountain ski for those who want to carve smooth arcs on the hill and float through pow on the other side of the rope. With a 104-mm waist, these skis provide nimble turnability when needed, and playful, floaty performance in deep powder. The flat, solid-core construction and full ABS sidewalls add torsional stiffness and provide premium power transmission, dampness and stability to hold fast while charging on harder snow. These Austrian-made skis feature pre-preg fiberglass and an engineered poplar core that make them a freerider’s one-ski quiver built to rip.

Key Features:

  • All-mountain charger with a 104-mm waist for nimble turnability.
  • Flat, solid-core construction with full ABS sidewalls for torsional stiffness.
  • Dampness and stability to hold fast while charging on harder snow.
  • Playful, floaty performance in deep powder.

One & Only❤️

Originally posted at www.blackdiamondequipment.com on Jun 1, 2024
The Impulse 104 is an all-mountain ripper, perfect for any terrain. They boast a lot of pop and flexibility, making them a joy to ride through crud, powder, groomers, and trees. With excellent damping, they handle vibrations smoothly, ensuring a comfortable and stable ride. Whether you're carving down groomers or navigating through tight trees, these skis perform exceptionally well, offering versatility and confidence in every turn. A fantastic choice for any avid skier. After spending 30 days on them last season, I can’t imagine going back to any other ski. A fantastic choice for any avid skier.

I have been scouring the internet and every blog I could find to figure out what type of skis were right for me- and Nate helped me more during our single interaction than I've been able to help myself over the better part of a year. I can't thank him enough for clarifying and simplifying this process for me- and he even gave me other gear recommendations for when I'm ready in the future. 17/10 would recommend any day!

Ben was super helpful and responsive throughout my purchasing process. I've been in the market for a couple of months and honestly didn't know where to begin since I have never purchased or owned skis before. Ben was very knowledgeable, had great recommendations, and was very responsive throughout the process.

Rarely do you get such a rapid response if they even have a true expert available to the consumer. If I didn't already have a pair of the same skis I would have definitely looked at some of his suggestions. Like that Curated has good quality merchandise and some inventory to back it up! Thanks for your help Leo and I will be sure to shop with Curated again.
