Technical info:
Freebird is the name of Black Crows’ ski touring series. The construction is considerably lighter compared to the normal freeride skis, although it doesn’t top the weight contest. Camox has a semicap construction with side wall at the waist. In contrast to the little brother Orb, it has an aggressive rocker and no extra curvature at the tip. This gives a low and acute tip angle. The front ski is very soft, while the camber is low.

On snow:
It feels like a proper freeride ski. The Black Crows Camox Freebird has good float in relation to the width, at the same time as it is both stable and easy to control. It is a very versatile touring ski, which functions well during powder days in February, as well as down steep couloirs in spring. What you get is a modern ski combined with low weight and stable maneuverability. A good alternative to wider powder skis.
