Alpine Ski Black Crows Orb

Ski sold without binding.

Big news for the 2017 Orb signed by Black Crows, it gave up the flat tail for a slight tail rocker also know by the name of Single beak and a half shape. The 2017 Orb pivots quickly and is orientated to a modern use. Black Crows engineers didn’t do any compromise on the stiffness and the power, it is endowed, and for the first time in history, with a titanium reinforcement plate. The new Orb is super snappy and extremely playful. 

What can the Black Crows Orb ski do? 

This all-mountain ski with its 90mm waist has no rival in term of adaptation to the terrain. With this redesigned Orb, you can attack on the slopes coming out of the gondola, its stiffness allow you to carve big lines on the slopes at max speed, if there are too many tourists for you just jump over the rope and smear powder all the way down. The tip rocker will keep you afloat and the early raised tail rocker will comes into action and delivers an astounding handiness. You will turn effortlessly, the balance is perfect and you slay beautiful lines in deep. In the end, the modernisation of the iconic ski made in Black Crows is a great success. You better get your hands on a pair of those bad boys. 

Who is the Black Crows Orb ski designed for? 

Confirmed and expert riders, if you want to have a blast this winter, this all-mountain ski is more powerful and playful than ever. Watch out, the titanium reinforcement plate boosts the 2017 Orb and will require a better physical condition to be fully enjoyed.

Structure - Construction

  • Double Titanal reinforcement  :

    Double titanal reinforcement above and under the wooden core in order to give more rebound and reactivity to the ski.

  • Laminated woodcore  :

    Woodcores have been used in the ski industry for ages. Thanks to its mechanical properties, its durability and the amount of possible combinations in terms of flex and torsion, wood remains the reference for top-of-range cores. They provide stability, rebounce, eliminate vibrations, and are extremely durable.

  • 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.

    Facilitates rotation.

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.

Technology

  • 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.
