Technical info:
Black Crows Nocta 2 is a powder ski with negative camber. The design is light, and, despite the size, each ski barely weighs 2 kg. This model is a little longer and narrower. Whereas last year’s version had low camber in the waist, this one is negative all the way. Nocta 2 has a lot of sidecut in the back ski, and the width difference between the front and back is only 6 mm.

On snow:
Big and versatile ski that handles most free riding in soft snow outside the groomed trails. Nocta doesn´t quite connect on hard snow, where it tends to flutter a little. On softer snow, however, the maneuvrability is good. These are the pros and cons of skis with this shape. It was generally the biggest riders who liked it the most. It is best suited for off piste skiing, but be aware that it also has a long setback which makes it less suited for skiing switch. Good floatation and it performs well in the turns - big powder turns in particular.
