The 2021 Version Of A Modern Classic, The lightweight version of the Black crows Freebird
Updated orb freebird
Updated Ord Freebird without losing its safe and versatile character on which its reputation has been built. It benefits from a general reduction in weight while maintaining excellent skiability. Weight gain due to redressing the ABS and the refinement of the rocker lift offering it a better base and even better hold. It is also fitted with a titanal plate underfoot which increases the drill depth so as to adapt to the new hybrid bindings.
- Weight: 2.93 kg (per pair 178cm)
- Dimensions: 122/91/109 mm (178cm)
- Construction: Paulownia and poplar wood core with glass fibre
- Turn Radius: 18m
The superb ski ability, bomb proof construction, and great looks combine to keep these versatile and iconic planks one of our best sellers.
Light but not too light they are in the sweet spot for touring skis that can deal with the crud and last through the years.
A couple of seasons ago this lightweight all mountain / touring ski was given an 11% tip rocker to make turn initiation a little easier and to help make the previous version a bit more nimble without sacrificing the edge hold and super smooth flex that made its predecessor a legend.
At 91mm underfoot, the Orb Freebird are very versatile, a superb tool for accessing the high mountains and skiing steeps, whilst still being good fun around the resorts, they are a good choice as one ski to do it all with a touring bias.
