Technical info:
If you are touring Romsdalen or Sogndal in Norway, you are bound to see a lot of super-wide skis. It is therefore exciting that Black Diamond´s Megawatt now comes in a touring focused carbon version, which is 200 grams lighter than before. Otherwise, it is similar to the version we have tested in the past, with a massive turning radius of 51 meters, long rocker in the front and back ski and a moderate flex.

On snow:
In addition to the large width, Megawatt´s geometry functions well. Flotation is great and it is both stable and easy to maneuver. As a powder ski it is in a class of its own. This is an extremely wide ski which obviously does not deliver quite as well on crust, both up and down the mountain. It is also too wide for the lightest boots. This is a ski for the growing group of people who have several touring skis. Are you one of them? It has fantastic flotation and weighs a couple of hundred grams less than its competitors.
