Alpine Ski Black Crows Vastus Freebird

Ski sold without binding.

Black Crows’ engineers hit hard again this year in the ski touring world with the Vastus Freebird, an ultra light mountaineering ski. For the first time Black Crows came out under 1000g on the scale for a 171cm ski. The secret is the new balsa and flax core stiffened by a layer of carbon. Endowed with a single beak shape, a tip rocker simple but powerful to float in powder effortlessly. 

What can the  Black Crows Vastus Freebird ski do? 

With a waist of only 76mm, the Vastus Freebird is a true rocket uphill. You don’t even feel it underfoot and you hike super fast. You will attack the steep straight up and avoid as many conversions as possible. Once on the edge, this touring ski gives confidence and provides a good grip even on hard and icy snow. Going downhill, it won’t be an epic freeride ski but you will enjoy the Black Crows signature and a super easy pivot. We can’t say that it delivers stunning sensations in freeride but it does the job. 

Who is the Black Crows Vastus Freebird ski designed for? 

We advise this light touring ski to expert riders who favour the ascent to the maximum to spend long days on the mountain. The Vastus Freebird will be the perfect ski to do Chamonix-Zermatt and go from refuge to refuge.

Weight of the pair in grams

  • 1980 en 171 cm

Structure - Construction

  • Biax 300 carbon  :

    Biax fiber placed over and under the woodcore giving the ski more flex and improving contact with the snow, biax reinforced with carbon.

  • 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.


  • 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.
