Black Crows Atris Skis Now On Sale

This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:

By Zack

What a fantastically well rounded ski, and another ski that was part of our famous Wolf Creek adventure. This was my ski of choice for when the ski area had only reported 3 inches, but we were pleasantly surprised by about a foot. As I have stated in a few other reviews, anything is going to be fun in a foot of snow as long as it is wide enough and has some rocker. This ski felt wider than what it actually is in deep snow and I have also had the chance to take it out on harder snow days earlier in the season, and I was quite impressed. I wouldn't lie to you, there is definitely some chatter at the highest of speeds but really no loss of edge hold. This could be a quiver of one for someone who spends 80% of their time off the groomed trails. The ski shines most in tight turning scenarios like moguls and trees. Also, when choosing a size for this ski, do not be afraid to size up just a bit. I normally am most comfortable in the upper 170's as far as length goes and I rocked the 184cm with ease.

As a freeride-oriented skier with a lust for powder, I feel like I’m always on a quest to find a mid-fat all-mountain ski that’s playful and surfy enough for soft snow and smooth and stable enough to bust crud or rip carves. I don’t like noodle skis, but I’m not a hulking ex-racer looking for a pure bomber. I dare say— the Atris gets me. Like, more than any ski (or woman) ever has. At Wolf Creek, the ski floated, sprayed, and slashed through trees in two-plus feet (yeehaw!) of fresh storm snow. Then it popped off cornices and cliffs. Then it laid smooth trenches on packed trails. Then it—ok, I’ll stop. I think you get the point.

2017 Black Crows Atris Review:

With 108mm underfoot and a turning radius of 18 meters, the Atris has serious freestyle backcountry game. Very easy to ski and, like all self-respecting Black Crows, very playful, the Atris feels as good on hard snow as on rough and demanding terrain. Designed by Julien Regnier, this new ski contains several technical peculiarities: the Double Beak Rocker and Progressive Sidecut. Double Beak Rocker is rocker in the tip and tail which offers immediate pivot-ability. The flex is still balanced even with more rocker in the tip than the tail. The sidecuts progressive flaring in combination with the rocker provides very good stability when the ski is on its edge. Its raised tips consist of 3 different layers, which permit great consistency in carving turns and a strong pivot on the flat. It is a ski which engages easily even at slow speeds. The Atris is a modern, multi-faceted ski: playful and very tough, whether you want to ski very fast or slightly slow; it performs in all directions, even upwards!
