The Ferox was born from the necessity of offering a bi-tip, double rocker, powder type touring ski which is still efficient on the edges. So, the objective is the powder and the sensation of floating on the snow.
But the soul remains alpine to adapt to all conditions encountered while touring. Equipped with a tail tip and a double rocker, this is a ski which offers great sensations in powder with its planing and immediate pivot, but which still sits well on hard snow due to its progressive side-lines. To optimise its weight (3600 g for the 181 cm), the Ferox was conceived on a 3D shape drawn in an H which cuts the upper part of the ski and lightens it without altering its solidity due to a carbon reinforcement which adopts this 3D shape. The core was also made lighter with a mix of paulownia, poplar and, for the first time with black crows, Isocore (a polyurethane mousse strengthened with continuous glass fibre).

The most playful shape of the Freebird line. These are a a lightweight touring specific big mountain ski, with 110 mm underfoot. The added width will definitely help in deep powder. Still these skis charge in hard snow and do remarkably well for a lightweight ski at this width. Still pretty easy to maneuver, especially if you have good technique.
These guys are 110 underfoot and light but still maintaining the feel of an alpine ski, no chatter. You'll feel confident on the way down and light for your turns. These are a DREAM to tour on. These can handle anything you throw at them, and then some!
