Brand: Black Crows
Model: Camox Freebird Skis
“So stable, yet poppy,” was a consistent comment on evaluation forms with this ski. A semi-cap or hybrid construction (similar to that of the Blizzard) provides extra stability underfoot for charging at top speed. We found the Freebird perfect for ripping through trees thanks to the slightly rockered tips, which create a shorter footprint for improved nimbleness.
This ski also proved adept in steep, icy couloirs where control is essential because the rockered tail allows you to release turns quicker under pressure. “I turned on a dime with minimal effort,” noted one experienced backcountry skier after pushing his limits in chutes.
The Camox Freebird’s relatively narrow dimensions mean you get just average performance on powder days.
