Black Crows Orb Freebird

Alpine Ski Black Crows Orb Freebird

Ski sold without binding.

The Orb Freebird is pretty much the best touring ski you can find in Black Crows lineup. The paulownia construction combined with a 91mm waist make the ski light and discrete under the feet allowing for long and effortless ascents. Notice the bright yellow, it has become the ski’s trademark.  

What can the Black Crows Orb Freebird touring ski do? 

The ski comes with titanal reinforcements in the binding area and a pretty high camber turning it into an excellent performer on firm snow where it remains stable and precise. But let’s be honest, the ski’s favourite playground is soft snow. Take the skins out and climb up any summit around. The Orb Freebird is an absolute dream, it is super light and super nimble on the uphill and turns out to work even better on the downhill, reliable as a true all-mountain ski. So, whether you’re up for some nice lines in the wild or you’d rather risk the narrow couloir you’ve been looking at for weeks, you can count on the Orb for doing all with confidence.  

Who is the Black Crows Orb Freebird touring ski designed for? 

The particularity of the Orb is that it covers a large range of needs. From intermediate skiers up to expert ones, you’ll find in the Orb the performance, the agility and the lightweight you need to progress your game and have fun.
