They say

Following in the footsteps of its universal avatar, the modernization of the Atris Birdie concentrated on three variables: lengthening the radius, softening of the flex and accentuating the progressive rise of the tail.

We say

For an epic powder day, these skis would be brilliant. They feel wide and stable underfoot and charge through deep snow with ease. Like all of the Black Crows we tested it feels like a high quality ski, the ride is smooth and the arc is really easy to predict. Combine that build quality with a generous waist and you have a ski that is perfectly geared up for backcountry fast riding. On the hardpack and piste the width works against it and it can feel a bit more cumbersome, but overall a great ski.

Tester Comments

Annabel Seel
Fabulous colour! A great ski to help explore off piste. Wide platform and rocker through tip and tail makes them easy to pivot.
Rowena Phillips
This is a great looking ski that pivots well would be great for deeper snow.
