 Black Diamond Kilowatt Skis

SPECS: 185cm Band new still in plastic!!! $385.00

What does say about this ski:
Black Diamond developed the Kilowatt Ski around a simple premiseómake a ski that floats in the powder, turns easily in a tight couloir, and feels stable on hardpack. Starting with a CNC-machined wood core, Black Diamond gave the Kilowatt Ski a torsion box wrap to allow smooth tip-to-tail flex while maintaining torsional rigidity for edge control. A wide 95mm waist gives you tons of float in the freshies, while the 22.5m sidecut (175cm length ski) allows easy turn initiation in tight places. Powder Magazine editors were so impressed with this ski that they gave it their Skier‘s Choice Award. Mount the Kilowatt Ski with telemark or alpine touring bindings, and see how effortless backcountry powder days can be.

What does Black Diamond say about this ski:
This is the BD-employee go-to ski when conditions are uncertain. Combining wide-bodied, 95-mm waist stability with an easy-turning silhouette, the Kilowatt sets free tight turns in mixed terrain. With a 3D CNC-machined wood core wrapped in Torsion Box construction, the ride is fun, easy and predictable, yet powerfully efficient. Formula One Technology increases torsional stiffness for excellent carve-ability and keeps the skis steady at Mach speeds.
