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 was looking for some all mountain/powder skis and bindings to add to my current collection of just park skis. Elizabeth was responsive and asked all the right questions to make me feel totally confident that what she recommended was fine tuned to my personal preferences and exactly what I needed :)

I am a newbie when it comes to snowboarding, so I didn't want to make an uninformed purchase. That's when I found curated and was linked with Mr. Cooper who has helped me pick my first setup. He gave me recommendations based on his experience. If something doesn't match your style just let him know and he will work his magic to fund you something closer to your desire.

I had an absolutely amazing experience with Edward! Going in to buying skis I had no idea what to look for and super anxious about finding the perfect skis. He gave me great recommendations and guided me every step of the way. Super attentive and overall a great resource! If you are paired with Edward you’re in great hands! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you, Edward for everything! You truly made the experience amazing for me from offering recommendations, answering questions, and supporting me throughout the process! You’re the best!!!

This guy will answer as many questions as you can throw his way- even if you ask the same question 5 different ways. NEVER felt like he got annoyed with me. Super knowledgeable and if he didn't know the exact right answer he said he'd find out and did quickly. I don't expect anyone to know everything, and I respect when someone can admit it and know where to find it. I'm still asking him questions even after my purchase lolHighly Recommended!!! Thanks Brenden.

Josh helped me figure out exactly what it is that I needed. Ive been a skateboarder for 20+ years and he has helped me transition to snowboarding by guiding me into the direction that most fits a person with heavy skateboarding background. He explained the gear and everything. He listened to my story and helped me define a setup from just that information.

I am truly grateful for the time Daniela spent taking care of my many questions as I decided on equipment for skiing. There are so many measurements to deal with (Daniela mentioned ones I didn’t even know I needed to know) it was frustrating. She held my hand, and I’m confident I have something for my skill level. There are settings I know I will need some pro help on like DIN settings. I’m looking forward to hitting the slopes with my new gear. Thanks Daniela!
