Alpine Ski Black Diamond Link 90

Ski sold without binding.

Black Diamond finally unveil their free touring line of skis which bridges the gap between freeriding and touring. Their name: the Link. The series incorporates 3 skis each having a specific width. Choose the one that best suits you and go shred! 

What can the Black Diamond Link 90 do? 

This is an invitation for climbing mountains and ski them like you never did. Enjoy Black Diamond’s know-how in building skis with the Link 90. It’s not a record breaker, it’s not the best freerider ever, it’s not powered by spacecraft materials, it’s not the lightest ski ever made either, but it’s a fantastic multitasking ski offering a wonderful playful feel along with a great skiability. Sometimes, the best things are the simplest. The Link 90 and its 90mm waist offers everything you need for enjoying the mountain as it should be enjoyed. It’s light and easy to use on the uphill but it’s also very agile and very floaty when skiing on the downhill, thanks to its rockered profile. Careful though, the ski being extremely light, it sometimes slides a bit on icy terrains and lacks of grip. However, the flat tail offers added control on groomers and gives a good kick out of turns. It makes the ski more lively and more fun to use.  

Who is the Black Diamond Link 90 designed for?  

This is a partner of choice for intermediate skiers who want to ski the entire mountain with peace of mind. Powder, piste, crud, whatever comes across you’ll be dealing with it with ease. The ski is playful and inspires confidence and progression.

Structure - Construction

  • 3D Sandwich  :

    The 3D Sandwich technology offers the best geometry possible to help you on demanding torsion.

  • 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.

  • Paulownia core  :

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

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

  • Semi-rockered tip  :

    the rocker rises between 151 and 275mm.

Various

  • Skin Lock  :

    Slot for touring skins.
