They say

The Black Pearl is the backbone of the women’s freeride line and intermediate to expert women rave about the fun this ski dishes out on a daily basis.

We say

This is another ski that got the team raving about its looks; this is one cool looking ski! The Black Pearl is a hard charging ski that loves to be driven by the skier. Once up onto the edge it holds really well and can handle high speeds and hard, icy conditions with ease. At this pace, it’s exceptionally stable while delivering a smooth ride, particularly in long turns, it feels totally in its element. It works well in changeable off piste conditions as well, as long as it’s up to speed and the skier takes charge.
