The Orb is the rare Black Crows ski that features a metal-reinforced core, hinting at the sporty, high-performance engine hidden within its elegant chassis. Two layers of Titanal stiffen the ski from tip to tail, providing pop and dampness. Combined with a moderate tip rocker and a mid-fat 91mm waist width, that stout spine makes the Orb a powerful, versatile option for people who spend as much time railing groomers as exploring off-piste. Where other skis recoil from reckless speeds and variable surfaces, the Orb slices ahead with precision and stability. That's why this is a favorite among Eastern skiers.
