What is new with the Black Crows skis range.

Black Crows is a ski brand inspired by modern art, passing via urban culture. The logo was created by Yorgo Tloupas of Yorgo&Co, and is an association of chevrons,which remind us of our childhood drawings and symbolises the squadron of crows. Simple and geometric, it can be modified into infinity, creating a perspective close to illusion, within the line of optical art. Like this, black crows skis are recognisable to everybody.

The involvement of Yorgo&Co’s Paris design office and more particularly of its founder, Yorgo Tloupas, in the artistic direction of the brand, manifested the link between urban and skiing universes. This relationship is equally one of the foundations of the company, of having the willingness to surpass classic boundaries between the mountains and the town with a new approach to the mountains.

This passion was translated by their willingness to find skis adapted to their practice in the Mont-Blanc massif. Black Crows was born from this intention.

It started, firstly, with a ski, the corvus, created in 2006 and which went on sale in 2007. A ski with a length of 196cm and 105 at the waist, capable of accelerating without limits in the massifs great powder fields, but also which had the capacity to handle delicate passages encountered in the high mountains. This non-conformist ski was the catalyst for the morphologic evolution of freeride skis.

“it’s a bit like having a wild stallion under your feet: the skis pivot ever so easily, they just love to play with the ground. and when you want to dig the edge in, the daemon’s right there, giving you instant bite into the snow whatever the terrain!”

perfect blend of titanal and full reverse camber.

a very stable ski which goes in to action easily and efficiently due to the full reverse camber. the tonic effect of the flex is counterbalanced by the full reverse camber and allows the daemon to combine speed, bounce and easy handling. Continue reading “Spot on: Black Crows Skis”
