Get Kitted for the Backcountry with the Black Crows Orb Freebird with Bindings and Skins and Save!

Ski details: 

The Black Crows Orb Freebird is the culmination of years of experience making bomber Alpine Touring Skis by the French designers. In classic Black Crows fashion the ski has every feature you want for long days out in the Backcountry and not a ounce more. The perfect balance between being very lightweight and still being able to be driven hard.

If you've spent any time in Chamonix, you will know the incredible feats that are possible strapped to a pair of Freebirds with a lightweight Tech Binding.

the nitty-gritty

  • moderate width: 91 mm waist.
  • front rocker: pivot and float.
  • medium classic camber: classic camber underfoot with moderate ski/snow contact = a good balance between stability and manoeuvrability.
  • titanal reinforcement under the bindings: better hold.
  • moderate flex: a tolerant and comfortable ski.
  • plastic insert and cut-out on the tail: easier to put skins on.
  • lighter core: 2.99kg per pair in 178 cm.

Binding Details:

Richard and Nicole from aussieskier put the ION through its paces in early 2015 for a month of ski touring in Europe including completing the famed Haute Route ski tour - the bindings skied perfectly on both the up and down, with freeride stability combined with tech binding weight and a sleek modern look to boot.

Introducing the most powerful and intuitive lightweight freeride touring binding: the ION. All-new from the creative minds at G3. Game changing forward pressure, wide mount and refined toe jaw dynamics plus unique step-in and brake features yield superior freeride performance in the lightest set up you can ask for. The ION’s efficiency, power transfer and sleek design is beyond any binding in its category. Power up, then charge the descent.


 

Din Range: 5-12
