Alpine Ski Black Crows Nocta

Ski sold without binding.

The Nocta Air looks pretty similar to its previous version but it carries a major difference. A pair of these gems weighs 1kg less. 1kg...this is massive! Lighter than ever, this fat ski has a new card to play! 

  

  

What can the Black Crows Nocta Air do?  

  

  

The Nocta Air likes fresh powder, the deeper the better. With a massive 125mm underfoot platform, the ski floats on powder like a boat floats on water and remains more agile and responsive than you’d expect. Featuring new technologies, the ski incorporates a new core, ultra light, made of balsa wood and linen fibre. Its progressive rockered tip and new rockered tail facilitates pivot and makes the Nocta Air even more stable when thrown at high speed on pow. Needless to say with such sidecuts, you won’t take it for dance on piste. The ski holds its own and will get you down the slope but it’s not a carver so don’t race your friends. Its wide profile will make it less precise on the hardpack and not as responsive. The ski’s favourite playground is located behind the resort’s ropes, where the snow is deep and untouched. 

  

  

Who is the Black Crows Nocta Air designed for?  

  

  

If you want to tame this powder beast, you will need to be an expert technical skier. It is not a toy but a freeride weapon, keep that in mind.

Structure - Construction

  • Light Core  :

  • Semi Cap  :

    Semi-capped sidewalls are a good way to unify the sides with the top of the ski and maintain the strength of vertical sidewalls.

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.

    Classic camber & double rocker: all-terrain, float, endurance, adaptability.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.

Various
