WOMEN’S SPECIFIC FRONTSIDE FUN FOR RIDERS LOOKING TO CLIMB THE SKILLS LADDER – THE BLACK CROWS CAPTIS BIRDIE GIVES YOU A FOOT UP BY DELIVERING CONFIDENT AND RELAIBLE CONTROL AT A PRICE THAT WON’T LEAVE YOU WINCING

Playful, fun and well-rounded – all characteristics which make a great intermediate ski for confident newcomers wanting to improve - and as it happens, characteristics that the Black Crows Captis Birdie has no shortage of. At 90mm underfoot they’re on the narrower end of the scale, making them the perfect companion for frontside skiing – whether that’s on-piste or in the park, the Captis Birdie is a solid choice for either.

Upping your game

Everyone has to start somewhere, that’s why Black Crows conceived the Captis Birdie. By keeping the flex soft and the nose and tail rockered, the Captis buffers moguls and uneven snowpack, while the reverse camber profile raises the contact points, lowering the chance of edge catch – the undoing of novices and experts alike. It’s a ski which is intended for both new and experienced intermediates, so whether it’s your first set of skis or your gateway into advanced riding, you’re sure to raise your bar significantly with Captis on your feet.

Female geometries

It’s annoying when ski manufacturers take a guys ski, cut it down 10cm, slap a big flowery design on it and try to pass it off as a woman’s ski, right? Women shift their weight in completely different ways to men, so to get the most out of your skis you need gender specific construction and geometries. That’s why Black Crows have their Birdie variants - a range of skis fine-tuned for females. Slightly lighter and softer, the Captis Birdie provides all of the same handling and performance as the guy’s version, but gives you more intuitive handling.

With their slim waist and short turn radius, the Captis Birdie wants nothing more than to be pushed hard on piste. But that doesn’t mean you need to spend all you time riding full-throttle - they’re just as happy cruising, learning butters, popping your first ollies and venturing side-piste for a taste of powder.
