Technical info:
With a semicap in fibreglass, this is the heaviest ski in the Navis series. Black Crows insist that rocker is not for the ladies. Like all the skis from Black Crows, it has a lot of taper. A stiff back ski with a softer front is normal for female models, but here it is taken to the extreme. Relatively short sidecut radius with a small tail.

On snow:
This is a light and nice allround ski. A little unstable at high speed, but still maneuverable. The edge grip impressed the test panel. This may not be the ski for the beginner, but an experienced skier will appreciate the solid feel of the Navis.
