Black Crows Navis Freebird Touring Skis 2020

Adventurer | Alpine | Light

102 mm dedicated to the spirit of adventure. A balance between lift and ski-ability, alpine conduct and progressive front rocker, the Navis Freebird is built for far-flung or daily quests.

The modernisation of our iconic model dedicated to touring with improvements made to the hold and the safety. To perfect a ski which already performs very well, the effort was concentrated on the extension of the side lines to gain stability and hold at high speed, but also we added a titanal plate under foot in order to double the wrenching force and also reinforce the solidity of the mounting of the binding inserts. Also new for the Navis Freebird, the addition of a new length of 173 cm which is placed midway between its two adjacent sizes, giving birth to four lengths: 167, 173, 179 and 185 cm.

“They provide a brilliant balance between weight and performance which means I am confident on anything from the steepest lines to touring for fast powder or spring corn. The 102 mm waist is wide enough in the powder while still feeling stable on firmer snow. I am particularly impressed that this same pair of skis has given me around 200 days of fun.” Ross Hewitt

What We Think...

A lighter touring version of the already great Navis. Designed to be taken to the  backcountry with a pin, frame or shift style binding. Go up, down, across or all over the mountain, hunting out those virgin powder lines. The titanal plate under foot keeps the ski absolutely solid, as with some ‘lighter version’ touring skis you end up sacrificing that solid feeling under foot. You don’t with the Navis Freebird. Black Crows have created a ski that you don’t loose out on anything. Floats amazingly well in soft snow and even slush, doesn’t chatter on an edge when on ice, and is easy to tour around on being so light, exactly what you need. Ski all over the mountain with confidence and stability with the Navis Freebird.

Sizing Guides

Sizing Charts

To help you to work out sizings, we have devised the following size guide. It is generic and not specific to any particular brand so especially with clothing it is best to either call for our opinion or cross reference the manufacturers individual size guides. Please click one of the links to get to the relevant chart below:

Ski length, Snowboard length, Snowboard Bindings, Boot sizes, Clothing sizes, Glove sizes.

Ski length

We have devised a simple chart to assist you in selecting your correct ski length. If you require any further assistance, our staff will be only to happy to help.

Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-7.5 7.5-8.5 8.5-9.5 10-10.75 11-11.25 12.5-13.5 13.5+
Weight (kilos) 32-38 38-43 43-47 48-54 57-62 63-69 70-79 80-86 87+
Length (cm's) 125 135 145 155 160 165 170 170 175

Level 1/2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5/6 Level 7/8 Level 9/10
Skiing for the first time Able to ski green/blue runs Able to ski Blue/Red runs Able to ski all pisted runs in good conditions Able to ski all runs on/off piste in good conditions Able to ski anywhere on the mountain
-15cm -10cm -5cm 0 cm +5cm +10cm

1. Select your weight level.The ski length at the bottom of your weight column is your suggested starting length.

2. Now select your abilty level, the amount in cms at the bottom of your ability level is added to or subtracted from your starting length.

3. Add a further 5cm if you are spending 60% or more of your time off Piste.

4. By adding the above together you will have found your recommended ski length.

By adding your Ski length to your ability you will have found your recommended ski length. For example a person weighing 75kg, who is a level 7 skier will ski on length of 170 + 5cms = 175cms.

This ski length chart is a guide as not all skis end in 5 or 0 cms and therefore suggest you ski closest to the recommended length

Snowboard Length

Snowboard sizing is determined purely by weight. Ability determines flex - beginners should choose a board with a softer more forgiving flex, whilst more advanced riders would normally prefer a stiffer board.

Weight (kg) 32-37 38-43 44-50 51-56 57-63 64-69 70-75 76-82 83-88 89-94 95-101 102+
Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-8 8-9 9-10 10-11 11-12 12-13 13-14 14-15 15-16 16+
Minimum length 125 130 135 140 145 150 155 157 160 162 164 166
Maximum length 135 140 145 150 155 160 162 165 168 170 170 170
