The Ferox was born from the necessity of offering a bi-tip, double rocker, powder type touring ski which is still efficient on the edges. So, the objective is the powder and the sensation of floating on the snow. But the soul remains alpine to adapt to all conditions encountered while touring.
Equipped with a tail tip and a double rocker, this is a ski which offers great sensations in powder with its planing and immediate pivot, but which still sits well on hard snow. To optimise its weight (3.6 kg 181 cm), the Ferox was conceived on a 3D shape drawn in an H which cuts the upper part of the ski and lightens it without altering its solidity due to a carbon reinforcement which adopts this 3D shape. The core was also made lighter with a mix of paulownia, poplar and, for the first time with Black Crows, isocore (a polyurethane mousse strengthened with continuous glass fibre).
- Wide width: 110 mm waist.
- Double Rocker: great pivot.
- Medium classic camber: classic camber underfoot with intermediate ski-snow contact: balances manoeuvrability with stability.
- Long side-cut: 21 m turning radius: stability at high speed.
- Weight: 3400g/pair @170cm - 3500g/pair @176cm - 3600g/pair @181cm - 3800g/pair @186cm.
The Ferox Freebird is for you if
you want a ski that makes the hike easy and the descent a party.
Black Crows. A freeski brand, fully independant, developed by Bruno Compagnet and Camille Jaccoux, two riders who, season after season, have practiced this sport as professional skiers and have gained unique know-how. Black Crows develops its own vision combining tolerance and high performance.
This project is the result of the necessity felt by numerous skiers to obtain a ski that corresponds to the genuine culture of free skiing. When Black Crows was created, the objective was to combine product reliability with the spirit of free-ski. Our motto is: no compromise on either the conception of the ski or its identity.
Black Crows. The equilibrium. A balance between passion and the expectation of a high quality product. Skis that correspond to today’s skier allowing them to express their diversity and the pleasure of their ride.
Our range of products is manufactured with special attention to exclusive finishing. Black Crows skis are easy to handle in all types of snow, playful but above all extremely high performing. This is where the foundation of the Black Crows’ identity lies.
Black Crows. The achievement. Our skis are the result of thousands of miles of riding all around the globe and of a culture that goes beyond the mountains. Today, riding is as much a type of ski as a social trend resulting from a cultural melting pot where the need for new experiences and perceptions fuse. There is Nature, but there is also the City, Art and Mankind. Let’s not forget who we are and why we ski.
With this fourth collection, Black Crows perpetuates the Associative Disorder. A contagious pleasure, that of skiing.
Black crows has developed a ski for free and contemporary skiing.
