Technical info:
This is a new ski from Black Crows, made in collaboration with the French guru Julien Regnier. According to the manufacturer, it has the best features from all the other models. It has a fiberglass sandwich construction with a relatively soft flex and a lot of sidecut. The radius is a little shorter in the back than in the front ski. Moderate rocker in the front and Black Crows´ familiar taper in the front and back.

On snow:
The big brother in the Corvus family feels as long as it is, and it prefers long turns. It is a little heavy in the start, and it´s not the easiest to carve clean arcs on groomed snow. But once you have reached a certain speed, it's like a freight train. It doesn´t do short turns and playfulness is not even part of the vocabulary, but if you want a relatively slim waist where you can take your foot off the brake, Corvus might just be the ski for you.
