A light, moderately wide and seriously skiable freetourer

Despite appearing as part of Black Crows’ Resort collection, it’s testament to the Orb’s phenomenally versatile shape that it also appears here in their Touring collection as the fantastic Orb Freebird. With the Freebird, you get the Orb’s great all-around performance, 91mm waist, 18m sidecut radius and mix of underfoot camber with generous nose rocker, but it’s been slimmed down by a whopping 1kg per pair. 

Carbon-infused core delivers lightweight performance

That considerable weight saving is achieved by the introduction of lightweight Paulownia to the otherwise poppy and playful Poplar core. Mixed glass and Carbon fibre are added to improve structure and rigidity, delivering excellent power transfer and edge hold on icy slopes when combined with the traditional underfoot camber profile and Titanal reinforcement plates. There really is very little compromise with this ski, which provides agile stability in a range of conditions, without weighing you down on the climbs.

A durable construction

The Orb Freebird’s semi-cap sidewall construction offers a blend of performance with durability, protecting against topsheet delamination and unsightly chips from impacts from trees, rocks and other unseen threats. Trimmed down, touring-specific edge rails keep things nice and light while providing smoother gliding and reduced friction on snow. 

Touring-specific features

The tail features a plastic insert for climbing skins. Not only does this make attaching skins easier but it also protects the ski from any damage associated with the clips.
