Alpine Ski Black Crows Navis Freebird

Ski sold without binding.

Another season begins for the Navis Freebird. The ski returns with an upgraded construction offering more lightweight than the previous one. 

What can the Black Crows Navis Freebird do?  

As if the Navis Freebird wasn’t good enough, engineers at Black Crows made it even better which is almost too good to be true. Say hello to the 2016 version weighing 400g less per pair. Stunning! Anyone looking for a light pair of sticks will have a feel for it. The turning radius was also shortened and the flex was softened which in the end results in a more playful and nimble ski, easier to move around. This mid fat gem delivers ultimate touring performance and allows long tours without creating much fatigue. The Navis doesn’t care about snow conditions or steepness, it rides everywhere and feels as good as can be! 

Who is the Black Crows Navis Freebird designed for?  

The Navis Freebird is the second widest ski after the Corvus. It is best suited for advanced or expert skiers looking for a light ski that performs up and downhill equally well. With a good edge grip on hard snow, which you often find when skinning up, the Navis Freebird stands like an excellent freetouring ski on the market.

Structure - Construction

  • Freebird Gene 2  :

    The bird gene in wide version. Specific combination for wide skis : Paulownia wood with Bird Carbon : tri-directional + bi- directional. Light for the ascent, vivacious for the descent. Optimal lightweight.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.


  • Single beak and a half  : progressive rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, slightly raised tail.

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.


  • Early rise  :

    Early rise rocker, long, flat and progressive. This enhances pivot when the ski is on flat ground but does not compromise the alpine performance when the ski carves.

  • Free Bird Edges  :

    Thinner Lightning Edges enable you to carve with feeling and precision. Technical and made for ski-touring.

  • Print Base  :

    Best for touring, freestyling and all-mountain riding.

I was after a pair of touring skis that would be ok for the up and great fun on the way down. They're fantastic! Really like them. Very lively and responsive, very easy to pivot and throw around, and hold an edge really well. Highly recommended

This was a present for my girlfriend and she was looking for a lightweight free-ride ski that she could tour on easily but that she would also be happy skiing inbounds with. Pros: Lightweight, good in powder, blasts crud and chop and seems to be fairly robust Cons: Small amount of chatter at high speed but less than expected displays only reviews from customers who ordered the product on its website. This is to improve the relevance of the comments.
