2023 Black Crows Camox Birdie
This unbeatable all-terrain toy is known for its forgiveness and playfulness. The combination of a very progressive flex and a long effective edge provides great manoeuvrability and grip at high speeds. With a freestyle-derived DNA, the progressive, softened flex makes it easy to progress, while the extended sidecut and long effective edge provide plenty of stability. Creativity for all on all types of terrain.
- Intermediate lift: 97mm at the skid
- Double rocker: great handling, control, pivot
- Slightly taut sidecut (20m radius): stability at high speed, balance between firmness and maneuverability
- Classic medium camber: classic camber underfoot with intermediate ski/snow contact, balance between footing and maneuverability
- Progressive flex: comfortable and forgiving
Intermediate - Advanced
- If you are a seasoned skier learning new skills, or a twice a year veteran taking on new challenges both on and off piste, you will probably fall into this category. Skis for this individual will usually be designed with a stronger wood core and sandwiched-sidewall construction. They will generally also offer both a wider profile and stiffer flex than a beginner - intermediate ski.
- An all mountain ski is engineered to be dependable in most terrains you have in mind. This could include heavy snow, steeps, font-side groomers, ice, and powder. If you have one ski in your quiver, this would be a good choice.
- Park skis are for the skier who prefers to hit the jumps, rails, and jibs. Many park skis will feature twin tips; thicker and more durable edges; and a denser extruded base. More rocker profiles and different shapes are becoming available to suit every skier in the park.
- Big Mountain skis will tend towards the stiffer side, usually with more rocker in the tip, and the tail having less. Hard chargers who prefer high speeds and bigger lines will benefit from the features these skis have to offer. These will typically be the widest skis and not be the best choice for piste.
- Bigger, Wider, more Float, and more Rocker. With a larger overall waist and rocker profile, these skis are meant for the days when the sky opens up so you can too.
Rocker / Camber / Rocker
- A rocker/camber/rocker profile has both the playfulness and float of a rockered ski while adding the edge hold of a cambered ski. This profile moves the front and rear contact points medial, but still not under your boot. A rocker/camber/rocker profile is excellent for an all mountain ski, giving you float in deeper snow and crud, with a good edge hold on piste.
