Black Crows Mentis Freebird Touring Skis
New for 2022 is the Mentis Freebird from Black Crows. It is the lightest ski in the Freebird lineup (Sub 1000g). The Mentis is definitely more of a fitness-focused ski but with a less aggressive sidecut and a wider waist than its predecessor. This is going to be a fun ski to rip laps with.
The Mentis is playful in nature but it sports a longer turning radius for its class (19m). With a unique blunt spoon nose and slightly more rocker than the Vastus, these skis will be able to handle a wider range of conditions. And just like the other Freebird skis, it has a Paulownia core, a layer of carbon mixed fiberglass weave, and a titanal mounting plate underfoot to keep it torsionally rigid. Think skinny powder ski with a twist.
