The Ova Freebird is very light and easy to
manoeuvre: a modern pure touring ski.
Inside, the core is made of paulownia and a
mixture of glass and carbon fibre, giving a core of 2.25 kg in the 175 cm
length. As for shape, the Ova Freebird has a progressively raised tail, a soft
sidecut and a tolerant flex, enabling it to pivot superbly without any
sacrifice of performance on hard snow.
The nitty gritty:
Narrow width: 85 mm waist.
Light rocker: stability, small pivot, good edge
Extra long classic camber: classic camber
underfoot with an extended ski/snow contact for alpine-style turns.
Short turning radius (17 m): very agile on
smooth surfaces and crud alike.
Moderate flex: a tolerant and comfortable ski.
Weight: 2100g/pair @162cm – 2200g/pair @170cm –
2250g/pair @175cm – 2400g/pair @180cm.
The Ova Freebird is for you if:
you want to be light as a bird on the way up…
and still hot-headed on the way down.
light and super-manoeuvrable, these new Ova Freebird skis are perfect for
off-piste all through the season. On the uphill they’re so light you forget they’re
there; and they’re really fun skis with their super pivot and tolerant
flex.” Johanna Stålnacke
