The Ferox was born from the necessity of
offering a bi-tip, double rocker, powder type touring ski which is still
efficient on the edges. So, the objective is the powder and the sensation of
floating on the snow. But the soul remains alpine to adapt to all conditions
encountered while touring.
Equipped with a tail tip and a double rocker,
this is a ski which offers great sensations in powder with its planing and
immediate pivot, but which still sits well on hard snow due to its progressive
side-lines. To optimise its weight (3 600 g for the 181 cm), the Ferox was
conceived on a 3D shape drawn in an H which cuts the upper part of the ski and
lightens it without altering its solidity due to a carbon reinforcement which
adopts this 3D shape. The core was also made lighter with a mix of paulownia,
poplar and, for the first time with Black Crows, isocore (a polyurethane mousse
strengthened with continuous glass fibre).
The nitty gritty:
Wide width: 110 mm waist.
Double Rocker: great pivot.
Medium classic camber: classic camber underfoot
with intermediate ski-snow contact: balances manoeuvrability with stability.
Long side-cut: 21 m turning radius: stability
at high speed.
Weight: 3400g/pair @170cm – 3500g/pair @176cm –
3600g/pair @181cm – 3800g/pair @186cm.
The Ferox Freebird is for you if:
you want a ski that makes the hike easy and the
descent a party.
“The Ferox Freebird is my ski of
choice for some self-accessed big-mountain faces, mini-golf lines or just to
explore the mountains with a capable touring ski that makes the hike easy and
the descent a party. It’s light, performing, it likes to jump and its double
rocker makes it butter friendly and rideable backward. “
