The previous version of the Black Crows Camox Freebird had a zero-carbon design that relied strictly on wood and fiberglass for its core. This was a novel attempt at seeking a traditional ski feel, but lead to a ski that was planky and sluggish.

The new Camox uses a similar core as the popular Orb Freebird where all of the poplar wood is removed for a paulownia only core, drastically reducing the weight. That reduction in wood stiffness is then reinforced with carbon fibers, glass fibers, and a titanal mounting plate.

The previous Camox's dimensions were always right for a fast and light setup, but the 1600+ gram weight and plank like feel kept it from being a good match for big missions in a light boot.

  • Great touring ski for a variety of conditions 
  • Rocker tip, camber underfoot and slight rocker in the tail
  • Light edges 
  • Redesigned lightweight paulownia core

New to sport so I don’t have much to compare to. But my experience there was great and the gear is exactly as promised, they were very detailed asking me my skill level intended use budget etc. and I think they set me up perfectly thank you guys.

Camox Freebird

So far almost all skiing has been inbounds, groomers here in the midwest. Utah trip coming up. This is also my first AT set up so can't compare apples to apples. That said ski is very nimble, holds speed well considering how light it is. Can put it up on edge and carve decently; does well in the bumps. Doesn't quite have the pop/energy I am used to with a traditional alpine ski. Not sure if that's a function of the this ski or AT skis in general. It is a minor critique.
Anxious to get it out in its intended environment and in powder. Side note: So far Solmon MTN bindings have been great. Not a single pre-release. Cant tell really any difference from a traditional alpine binding in terms of on snow feel/performance; so 2 thumbs up on that.
