The 2022 Black Crows Orb Men’s ski is designed to cater to intermediate to advanced skiers who prefer harder pack snow. Black Crows originate in Chamonix where conditions change at the drop of a hat and are built to conquer all conditions of the front side with ease, stability, and playfulness.
With an 88mm waist and a much wider tip and tail profile, turns are easily initiated, and edge is maintained throughout each turn. This hourglass shape and camber/rocker profile also encourages deeper and faster turns with poppy edge to edge transitions between. We love this ski as its incredibly responsive with that fun float between turns. The flex is energetic but not too stiff, so jelly-like ski legs are a thing of the past.
This ski is ideal for the skier who has their basic technique down and is ready to take their skiing to the next level in a variety of frontside conditions. Also ideal for a one-ski-quiver to take both on trips in the Australian alps and overseas!
The Black Crows Orb comes without bindings, so you have the option to choose the right binding for your personal style or preference. We recommend pairing this ski with the Marker Griffon with a brake width equal to or no more than 15mm wider than the ski waist
