Alpine Ski Black Crows Orb Freebird

Ski sold without binding.

The Orb Freebird is a mythical Black Crows dedicated to ski touring and free touring approaches. Lighter than the freeride model the Orb, it left the titanium plate for a new ultra light poplar, paulownia and carbon core in order to attack the most difficult ascents. Black Crows also redesigned it  and gave it a Single Beak and a Half shape, a tip rocker and a slightly raised tail. The result: the pivot is easier. The new 2017  Orb Freebird is more than fun to ride. 

What can the Black Crows Orb Freebird ski do? 

This new version of the famous Orb Freebird is way more playful and forgiving going downhill that last year’s model. You will  have tons of fun laying tranches in deep effortlessly. The 2017 Orb Freebird is also lighter and will save you energy and time during the ascent. Black Crows succeeded to boost the pleasure during the descent without compromising the performance. Great job guys! 

Who is the Black Crows Orb Freebird ski? 

This new Orb Freebird will please modern and confirmed skiers seeking handiness and playfulness to have a blast in deep. It should also seduce intermediate skiers looking for free touring ski to get out of the beaten path ASAP.

Structure - Construction

  • 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.

  • Triax 300 carbon  :

    Triax fibers around the core provide more precision when skiing. They are reinforced with carbon.

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  :

    Classic camber & single front rocker: handling, power, carving, precision.

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.
