They say

As the worlds best selling women’s ski, the Black Pearl shines as the versatile, all round ski offering the ultimate ride through all types of terrain.

We say

The Black Pearl is unchanged from last year and remains a fantastic ski. It has many strengths, one of the main ones being its edge hold and general all round ability on the piste. This is a ski, which totally rips any type of turn shape on the groomed runs. As well as great edge hold it has confidence building stability and a superb, flowing transition into the new turn. The solid construction really works in its favor on the piste but also holds up well in deeper snow conditions, where the wide platform and well designed shovel give it good lift and a reactive playful nature.

Tester Comments

Bella Seel
Just the best ski! Fun, playful and exciting to ski, unchanged from last year and for good reason
Lynn Mill
It’s really hard to find fault in this good looking ski. It’s torsionally stiff which gives great edge hold and strong from tip to tail which provides strength through variable conditions and bumps
