Black Crows Corvus Freebird Skis 2020

Hard to miss in the field due to the brilliant pink topsheets, the Black Crows Corvus Freebird Skis also stand out when it comes time to ski down. Unlike the regular Corvus, which went full reverse camber last season, the Corvus Freebird retains the rocker - camber - rocker profile for a more precise feel on steep and challenging backcountry descents. A ligher Paulownia and Poplar core and more carbon fiber in the layup bring the weight down to 1800 grams per ski in a 175.1. A top choice for freeride touring addicts who don't want to sacrifice downhill performance in their touring ski.

Marker Kingpin 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

When it comes to tech bindings you can use for daily skiing, the Marker Kingpin 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings still rule the roost. Light enough for adventurous touring but tough enough to slap on your daily drivers, the Kingpin 13 simply gets the job done with a weight of only 758 grams per foot. In addition, the power transmission with the spring-loaded Kingpin heel unit is a an improvement you'll feel over the traditional twin-pin tech heel connection. A favorite of hard charging backcountry types and working snow professionals. *Please Note: These bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.*

Product Details

Toe

Kingpin ToeThe PinTech design on the KingPin toe piece promotes an ergonomic rolling up the foot and the most direct possible connection to the ski. Six steel springs capture the energy optimally, up to a DIN setting of 13. Individually adjustable positioning blocks make it quick and easy to step in no matter what the conditions.

Updated ToeThese bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.

Heel

Kingpin HeelThe revolutionary heel construction for the PinTech bindings features wide sole contact points to deliver the kind of direct, lossless power transfer more frequently seen in alpine bindings.

Tour Mode

Kingpin Climbing Aid | 0° / 7° / 13°Good climbing aids have one thing in common: Whatever the situation, they can be operated by feel, even when the skier can't see them clearly. Simplicity is a virtue here, and reduced exertion is even better. The KINGPIN wins hearts and minds through two integrated climbing aids (7° and 13°) that are easily deployed or stowed using the basket of the pole. They can also be operated conveniently using the tip of the pole, allowing them to work with any basket style. Because the climbing aids are positioned in the upper center of the heel piece, they are always easy to reach.

Walk / Ski ModesThe refined locking/unlocking procedure for the heel piece is part of the binding's charm. It takes just one step to switch from walk to ski mode: Simply flip a lever, push down on the heel and you're good to go. The mechanism works even in critical situations and challenging descents.

Boot Compatibility

One Size Fits AllBoots with tech toe fittings are required.
