A cross-breeding of big mountain profile with lightweight touring performance

The 2019 Black Crows Anima Freebird lets you ascend under your own steam, before dropping into the deepest and steepest terrain you can handle. Whether you’re skinning or boot packing, you’re going to spend a lot of time with the Anima Freebird on your feet or your back, so Black Crows have used every trick in the book to shave off as much unnecessary weight as possible.

‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot change

The standard Anima is already pretty lightweight, but by replacing some poplar cores with paulownia, Black Crows save you more valuable grams that’ll help you skin for longer – that’s where the “Freebird” comes from. The remaining poplar gives the core durability with consistent flex. It’s then layered with carbon and fibreglass sheets for torsional stiffness and longitudinal pop and recoil, resulting in an ultra-light loadout which is both responsive and powerful.

Dreamy float, stable response and nimble handling

The Anima Freebird benefits from a slightly softer flex than the standard model. Not only does this make it more comfortable for skinning, but it also makes skiing powder feel more surfy and loose. Black Crows throw in some nose and tail rocker for bags of float too. Not to be outdone by its beefier counterpart, the Freebird has plenty of edge hold thanks to the camber underfoot.

The Black Crows Anima Freebird is a superlight big mountain freetourer that makes self-powered ascents effortless and waist-deep descents even more memorable.
