Black Crows Navis Freebird (2020)
DescriptionThis is a pre-order product. ETA May 2019
102mm dedicated to the spirit of adventure. A balance between lift and ski-ability, alpine conduct and progressive front rocker, the navis freebird is built for far-flung or daily quests.
The modernisation of our iconic model dedicated to touring with improvements made to the hold and the safety. To perfect a ski which already performs very well, the effort was concentrated on the extension of the side lines to gain stability and hold at high speed, but also we added a titanal plate under foot in order to double the wrenching force and also reinforce the solidity of the mounting of the binding inserts.
“They provide a brilliant balance between weight and performance which means i am confident on anything from the steepest lines to touring for fast powder or spring corn. the 102 waist is wide enough in the powder while still feeling stable on firmer snow. i am particularly impressed that this same pair of skis has given me around 200 days of fun.” - Ross Hewitt
Gnomes Comments: This could be the perfect New Zealand touring ski, 102 is a magic number to handle ice to pow. Its weight is also perfect in our eyes!
