A new addition to the Black Crows range for this season, the Captis is a ski designed to take on all terrain - whether it's carving down groomers, blasting off rails and jumps, or taking the odd foray into softer snow conditions.

Although aimed at advanced skiers, the flex pattern allows intermediates with ambition to enjoy the ride without feeling overwhelmed.

That's not to say the Captis is dull or unresponsive, as it's playful with plenty of pop for those seeking air time on their rides around the mountain.

That's down to a Poplar wood core and a two-way fibreglass weave, combined with strips of carbon fibre and Kevlar to create a ski that's both light and tough where it needs to be.

Add to that nice fat edges and an ABS sidewall semi-cap construction and you've got a ski capable of withstanding a fair amount of punishment by the hooners, hot-doggers and hard-chargers the Captis is aimed at.

With a double rocker, classic camber and very usable 90mm width underfoot, the Captis is a good choice for both experienced skiers and those looking to progress in all terrain.

Stable at high speed and solid on landings, this is a ski for inspiring confidence... and having a whole lot of fun in the process.
