2015 Review: The Blackeye Ti is an agile, titanium reinforced all mountain ski which really comes into its own on piste. The ski returns for 2015 with just a very subtle graphics change The Blackeye Ti is a little bit narrower than its cousin the Nomad Crimson Ti making the Blackeye better on the frontside of the mountain.

With the Blackeye Ti, skiers are well prepared for any situation. Two titanium inserts increase torsional rigidity and in conjunction with the Step Down sidewall transfer every last shred of power directly to the slope: delivering optimum edge grip and precise tracking. This year\'s model has a major update with ARC Technology. New ARC Technology means the Nomad Blackeye Ti can blast through variable snow conditions. Because the skier\'s power is concentrated in one spot in the center of the ski, the skier is able to easily load the skis and receive all of the benefits of its powerful construction. ARC also ensures the skis maintain constant contact with the snow, providing solid edge grip and great stability.The Blackeye Ti is ideal for athletic all mountain skiers who demand lively power transmission and precise edge grip on piste and who still expect excellent gliding characteristics in soft snow.

Ski Features:
Rocker: 85% Camber/15% Tip Rocker
ARC Technology
Step Down Sidewall 2.0
Wood Core
2 Layers of Titanium

2014 Review: Powerful and precise, the Atomic Nomad Blackeye Ti is an agile frontside machine with all-mountain versatility. The titanium-reinforced wood core provides a backbone that rails on the firmest surfaces, while a bit of tip rocker eases turn initiation and helps the ski plane higher in ungroomed snow. Slighly narrower than its acclaimed cousin, the Nomad Crimson Ti, the Blackeye benefits from the same world-class construction, but is a bit quicker edge-to-edge and, thus, more focused on slaying groomed snow. With the proprietary ARC Technology, power from the skier is focused in one central area on the ski through the turn for smooth, damp carving. A lively plank with unimpeachable edge grip and stability to spare, the Nomad Blackeye Ti is an ideal everyday east coast ski, and should be near the top of the list for western skiers who spend most of their time on the frontside.
