Black Crows Ova Freebird Ski (85mm waist)
Looking for a lightweight touring ski at a great price? You found it! The Ova Freebird is an amazing choice for skiers looking to go farther with more confidence.
This ski has a perfect width underfoot for morning laps at the resort to exploring the presidential range. We find that touring skis with 80mm to 90mm widths underfoot feel much more like resorts skis as there is less material that can flex between the binding and the edge of the ski.
Modern shaped tips and tails give this ski a playful and smooth feel. Many skis are adopting rounder tips and tails as they do not dig into the snow as aggressively when initiating turns.
### Black Crows Says: ###
The ova freebird is very light and easy to maneuver: a modern pure touring ski.
Inside, the core is made of Paulownia and a mixture of glass- and carbon fibre, giving a core of 2250g in the 175cm length. As for shape, the ova freebird has a progressively raised tail, a soft sidecut and a tolerant flex, enabling it to pivot superbly without any sacrifice of performance on hard snow.

Motto: I can resist anything except temptation
-Light rocker: stability, small pivot, good edge grip, float.
-Extra long classic camber: classic camber underfoot with an extended ski/snow contact for alpine-style turns.
-Short turning radius (17 m): very agile on smooth surfaces and crud alike.
-Not for telemark.
