The Curated Take
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!!
- 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 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.
- 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.
