2018-19 Black Crows Orb Freebird Backcountry and Touring Ski
The Black Crows Orb Freebird has been around for so long it is now seen as THE benchmark ski when it comes to ski touring. Featuring a moderate front rocker and a medium classic camber it has that perfect balance of turning ability on piste and lift off piste, making the ski more agile than its’ radius would indicate. It features a semi-cap construction and paulownia woodcore which is augmented with mixed glass & carbon fibre. Titanal reinforcement under the bindings give excellent grip and edge hold in difficult conditions. With a 91mm waist this is a classic touring ski and perfect for adventurous ski tourers and backcountry skiers.
