The confidence the Camox inspire in all conditions.
Their £550 price tag, without bindings, puts the Camox towards the more expensive end of the spectrum amongst similar performing skis.

Black Crows' tinkering with the Camox for 2018 has only gone as far as the top sheet, which adds brighter red and relegates the black from the colour scheme.

If that palette doesn't tickle your palate, the good news is the Camox remain all-mountain performers that'll see you up, down and all around comfortably in most snow conditions you'll find underfoot.

The Camox has a classic camber, plus a touch of rocker in the tail as well as the tip - striking a good balance between stability and manoeuvrability for skis that are 97mm underfoot with a turn radius of 18m, regardless of whether you opt for the 174, 181 or 186 length.

As you might expect from mid-fat skis with a hefty dose of rocker, the Camox perform well off-piste with enough float in soft snow. They have good manoeuvrability for skis of their size, skiing shorter than their absolute length thanks to that rocker.

While you wouldn't choose the Camox specifically for groomed slopes, they don't disappoint thanks to a construction that includes carbon/kevlar strips. Those materials keep the weight down but add a welcome stiffness, and you can feel confident arcing out long GS turns on the corduroy.

The Camox are good all mountain workhorses that won't let you down whatever the conditions.
