The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Black Crow Navis Freebird Touring Ski is the ideal ski for those who aim to spend long days in the backcountry. You will be thanking yourself for these lightweight skis on the skin track, at 3400g for the 179cm length you will be able to crush those uphills. On the downhills you will again be thanking yourself, the ski is quick to edge, responsive and playful. This ski hits the perfect balance between lightweight and skiability/stability. At 102mm underfoot, it has good floatation in the deep snow and with the front rocker and flared tip carves the hardpack very well. I believe that this is the perfect ski for someone looking for a touring ski to do both long distance tours as well as daily driver shorter trips. It is very fun to ski and has never let me down and I'm sure it won't let you down either!!

Ideal for
  • Lightweight, they cruise up the uphills with ease.
  • Quick to edge, responsive and stable.
  • 19m turning radius and the poplar/paulowina core gives them a playful feel
Not ideal for
  • Not ideal for bigger hard charging resort skiers.
  • At 102mm underfoot they may not have enough float for the BIG days.

The Black Crows Navis Freebird Touring Ski is ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers who want a dedicated ski for daily backcountry treks or ski that can take on long distance adventures to check off lines. The Navis Freebird pairs a wood core with carbon and fiberglass for lightness and skiability. A progressive front rocker and flared tip excels through variable snow while adding maneuverability.

Key Features:

  • Classic Long Camber – The Long Camber maximizes snow contact and helps stabilize the skis in variable conditions.
  • Core – Paulownia/Poplar and Mixed Carbon/Fiberglass core for a lightweight, responsive ski.
  • Titanal Binding Reinforcement – Black Crows added a titanal plate underfoot for binding assembly.

I had the pleasure of receiving exceptional assistance from Kevin while picking out my snowboard. Their expertise and passion for snowboarding were evident from the moment we began discussing options. Not only did they patiently listen to my preferences and skill level, but they also offered invaluable insights and recommendations. Their knowledge of the equipment and understanding of how different boards suit various styles and abilities truly made the selection process enjoyable and educational. Thanks to Kevin , I ended up with the perfect snowboard. I highly recommend their expertise to anyone seeking guidance in choosing the right snowboard.

Matthew was a lifesaver
5 /5
Matthew was super helpful. He asked a lot of questions and provided incredibly valuable insight. He made the entire process stress-free. Without his help it would have taken hours of research to figure out which skis to buy for my son. This was a great experience. Matthew went above and beyond to help me find the perfect skis.

Soren is awesome!
5 /5
He was very helpful and replied fairly quickly! It made the shopping process way easier. I am a totally knew to skiing. So his help was greatly appreciated. The only thing that may have made my decision making process easier would be if Soren provided some background on the suggested brands when he made the recommendations. I was just so new that I didn’t know what I was looking at

Johnny was such a great help!
5 /5
I was new the Curated experience, but Johnny was SO helpful! He had answers to every single question I had and was very open to hearing more when I had a concern. I feel like I was set up with the best board, boot, and binding bundle. I could not have done that on my own. I look forward to using this site, as well as Johnny's expertise for any other future snowboarding purchases I make.

Amazing to have a rider recommend proper gear
5 /5
Sarah took all my concerns and made sure that each piece of equipment was exactly what I wanted. Even though I had an idea of what I wanted, it was nice to have someone give feedback on most of the pieces. This professional is NOT money motivated and will not make you spend on the highest piece of equipment if they don't see it fitting your needs. Glad to have Sarah get me fitted for this season and especially grateful for the board set up tips! Also the conversations don't feel like a support chat. It's almost like being in a small snow shop with someone that actually wants to help and wants to see you enjoy what you're spending on.
