They say

A modern fat touring ski for skiers who want to play on the descent. Its rocker makes it really easy to manoeuver, while its float makes it fun in deep powder.

We say

As with a lot of the Black Crows skis we tested the Camox immediately feels a quality piece of kit. It’s extremely well balanced with a soft flex pattern but still manages to be torsionally quite stiff. This means it’s really easy to use, being light and pivoty, while being balanced enough to cope with a variety of turn shapes. At higher speeds it can lose composure, but overall this is a solid touring choice that can cope well in all conditions.

Tester Comments

Mike Barker
Easy to ski, easy to tour, extremely well balanced with a soft flex.
Mark Jones
Great looking ski that would work well as a touring ski that could be fun in all conditions.
