Technical info:
In recent years, Black Diamond has moved its production to Blizzard´s factory in Austria. They have received a lot of praise for the ski touring models, but they also make on-piste skis. The design of Boundary Pro 115 is based on input from BD´s sponsored free riders. It has a moderate sidecut, a soft front ski and a lot of rocker compared to the other models.

On snow:
This model is a limited edition according to BD. How many pairs? We don´t know. What we do know is that it comes in one length only (185 cm). It performs well at high speed, although the maneuverability could have been better. It is a bit of struggle to make it turn; it prefers going straight forward. Maybe it´s because of the soft front ski? That being said, many people like skis that go straight forward. If you are looking for a classic big mountain ski that understeers and is a little reserved, this might be your option.
