 Cutting | Precise | Agile

“the shape of the vertis lets you shift from edge to edge like driving a racing car in a computer game, except for the snow that’s hitting you in the face – nothing virtual about that!”

Julien Regnier


Take back the groomers with the Vertis. Enjoy a variety of different turn shapes the terrain can dictates or lay your own lines in defiance. With its short radius (15 meters), its both dynamic and playful.

At 85mm at the waist, it benefits from a very fast edge to edge transition which instigates the pleasure of carving and cutting lines. Its intermediary flex promotes efficient skiing at all levels. The vertis is the quintessential black crows’ downhill ski and is perfectly suited to New Zealand resort skiing.

The nitty gritty

Long classic camber: classic underfoot camber with wide ski/snow contact for cutting downhill turns.

Short radius (15 m) and narrow waist (85mm): reactive, edge to edge transition speed, short carving lines. ski orientated towards ‘piste’ and changeable snow conditions, very stable with a fast edge to edge transition.

Sporty and fun flex. light rocker (giving stability), small pivot, good edge control, glides well.
