The crew at Black Crows unapologetically acknowledges that the camox’s DNA is derived from freestyle skis, and testers took notice. With a massive turn radius, the camox performed best at speed with long turns and an upright stance. Don’t let the ski’s park roots fool you, however, as the added pop made this ski supremely maneuverable in variable terrain, pleasing skiers who prefer brands that don’t have FIS pedigrees.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Playfulness

WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
