Alpine Ski Black Diamond Carbon Aspect

Ski sold without binding.

Before entering the skiing industry, Black Diamond built its notoriety through mountain sports and climbing. So when they began designing touring skis, they knew how important the weight of the equipment was. More lightweight, more performance, these were on focus for Black D. when they designed the Carbon series. 

The Carbon Aspect was built for the steeps. Making no compromise whatsoever, its PrePreg composite construction and its paulownia woodcore makes it light as air while the carbon incorporated provides performance and reactivity. Its 90mm underfoot platform offers an enjoyable floatation on powder while its specific geometry ensures hardpack performance making this ski as versatile as a chameleon. 

  

What our testers say : The Carbon Aspect is similar to the Aspect but it's got a lighter body and shall bond easily with light or small skiers looking for an effortless touring partner. The ski offers the same skiability as its brother withthe same comfortable damp feel. A great pick for advanced and expert level skiers.

Weight of the pair in grams

Structure - Construction

  • Racing Edge  :

    Racing edges for a better grip.

  • Pre-preg fibreglass  :

    This technology allows to control precisely the amount of epoxy resin used in each ski and helps maximising durability and stiffness. You get a lighter ski with the same durability, precision and skaibility.

  • Flat Sandwich  :

    This innovative construction offers the best weight to performance ratio, suited for tourers.

  • Paulownia core  :

    Light wood that grows fast and is easily renewable. Same resistance as poplar and same weight as balsa.

  • Carbon fibre reinforcement

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

  • Rocker  :

    Rocker isn't designed only for powder anymore. It is a versatile tool helping on turn inititations, soft turns, and changing radius. The rocker provides wide skis with agility, and narrow skis with floatation. Depending on how the rocker rises, the ski delivers different performance. Black Diamond has sorted their skis into 3 categories : Rocker, Semi-Rocker and Traditional.

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.

Various

  • P-Tex 4000 base  :

    High speed base with stone finish, this provides the best compromise of durabilty, glide and maintenance.

  • Skin Lock  :

    Slot for touring skins.
