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.

Bryan O'CONNOR owns this product
I have purchased this ski multiple times. I’ve used it on Tuckerman Ravine, I’ve toured in the Wasatch range, and I’ve used it in spring bump runs in VT. It’s my go-to ski. Navis Freebirds float, pivot, splash, pop, and wiggle through trees and boot deep powder with the best of them.
Ideal for
  • Off-piste variety
  • Highly agile and intuitive
  • A very playful touring ski
Not ideal for
  • Struggle in deep powder

The Navis Freebird combines black crows downhill expertise with a lightweight uphill design meant for long days ski touring.

Ideal for
  • This product is great for long days going uphill
  • While it's a lightweight ski designed for efficiency on the up, it skis really well in mixed conditions on the down.
  • This ski performs great in technical, steep terrain. It's light weight construction makes it maneuverable and efficient in tight couloirs and steep runs alike.
Not ideal for
  • Very lightweight ski, powerful skiers may find it too soft for their liking

Love these skis - all mountain all the time!

Posted on Dec 20, 2023
Skinny enough to carve the groomed early season snow, light and springy in the bumps, have not had the opportunity to try them out in deep powder but anticipate they will excel there too! Much lighter than my other skis and a really fun ride!

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

Jared helped me get insight on my first snowboard purchase
5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!
