The Black Diamond Current Ski is a lightweight, agile touring ski that likes downhill fun as much as uphill speed. Its 86mm waist is wide enough to provide a touch of flotation in deep snow, quick edge-to-edge performance, and a stable platform for carving deep turns. Traditional camber at the waist gives you superior edge hold and turn control directly underfoot, while the rocker tip and tail chow up powder. An aggressive, directional sidecut enables deep, precise short- to medium-length turns. The Current’s 3D Sandwich Layup utilizes a classic sandwich construction combined with an ABS sidewall with a tapered shape, for a ski that’s more durable than a cap construction ski, and one that allows for superior edge hold and tracking, and more consistent longitudinal flex. The ski’s Racing Edge is thinner and lighter weight than the Power Edge used in Black Diamond’s other Freetour skis for weight savings, and includes stainless steel SkinLock tabs for easy skin management. The Current is a narrower, lighter version of the Black Diamond Revert, and features a more playful shape than the Aspect. Black Diamond rates its ideal use as 50% powder, 50% hard snow.
