Black Crows Navis Freebird Skis 2021

The Black Crows Navis Freebird Skis are among the best-selling of the BC touring lineup, and arguably the most versatile. Like the other "Freebird" offerings, the emphasis is on skiability rather than on producing the lightest ski in the category, and the Navis Freebird backs that up with exceptional stability and confidence on the steeps. The sidecut has been lengthened a bit (19 meters @ 173.4) and a Titanal plate has been added underfoot for binding retention, but this ski will continue to be a winner this season.

Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

With an all-new design reminiscent of something out of the Transformer movies, the Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings promise to set a new bar for power and reliability in the backcountry. In ski mode, the Shift MNC looks like a low profile alpine binding with a long nose, but pull the SHIFT bar on the toe rearward and a set of tech "wings" pops open for touring (yes, you will need a boot with tech fittings to skin uphill). The beauty of the Shift is that it skis pretty much just like a 13 DIN alpine binding (the Warden 13 comes to mind) but weighs under 900 grams (compared to nearly 1500 grams for a Guardian) and features a much smoother touring action. If you're bummed by the weight of your frame AT bindings but are wary of using a tech binding for committed hard charging, the Shift MNC is the burning light at the end of the tunnel.
