The Black Crows Camox Birdie is one of the most popular female all-mountain skis for a reason. As Black Crow states: it's an 'Accessible and Versatile' ski. That's an inviting description for one ski that can handle itself is all conditions with ease. The 2020 model has brought two intermediate lengths so skiers can better dial in the correct ski length for their particular style of riding. The sidecut has also changed with the 2020 Camox Birdies. Now the shape of the ski remains more constant with the scaling per ski lengths. So the ski should ski similarly, be it a 156 cm or 174 cm length. Lastly, the softened the flex pattern so create a more playful, bouncy style of skiing.
The Camox Birdie comes with a poplar wood core to create it's light and nimble character. A semi-cap construction with step-down sidewall is an advanced construction technique that the Birdie Series all uses which makes for a durable, long-lasting ski. The Camox in particular has a softer flex pattern with double rocker to make the ski more maneuverable and pivot-friendly. This shape makes the ski agile in mixed terrain, like in the trees or in variable snow.
The Camox Birdie is a do-everything ski that has enough surface area for powder floatation, but it really shines in when snow and terrain get funky. That's when you want light-footed dexterity, which the Camox Birdie provides in folds.
