After their massively successful debut in the 19/20 season, Black Crows' Anima is back for 2021 with an upgraded construction. This ski is built for off piste riding, so that's where it shines. If you're the type of skier that loves powder, steeps, and technical terrain, then you are sure to love the Anima!
The 2021 Black Crows Anima Skis blend power and agility to make sure you have a damn good time in the deep stuff. With 115mm under your boots and the Double Rocker profile with progressive tip rise, you're guaranteed those floaty feels, even after the deepest of dumps. When you hit top speed they feel as stable as could be, with a bit of extra stiffness at the contact points and camber underfoot providing plently of grip.
These skis are wide, the waist footprint is a substantial 115 mm, this width is one of the main reason why the Anima skis perform so smoothly in deep snow and stably on variable terrain. The tips and tails of the skis are rockered, this rocker improves soft snow performance, the Anima skis uses Black Crow's double beak profile which facilitates easy pivoting and gives a playful feel, the double beak rocker helps when trying to negotiate through tight situations, such as rocks, trees, or bumps. The raised tail also lets you land switch after spinning off booters into powder.
Whilst the Anima skis are by no means a piste ski, they are stable enough for navigating the pistes, 60% of the ski is traditional camber, and the progressive rocker means most of the edge comes in contact with the snow when the skis are set intro a carve. The Anima has a hard snow stability which is rare for such a wide ski.
Due to the large size, and backcountry freestyle orientated design, we would recommend these skis for advanced or expert skiers looking to charge away from the trails.
Classic Camber Profile - Early rise in both the tip and tail makes pivoting easy and turn initiation smooth. The early rise also gives float in powder, and soft snow versatility. A traditional camber profile underfoot generates power and grip on piste and keeps the skis stable at high speeds
Poplar Wood Core - This is a lively core which gives stability and performance when charging
Biax 300 and Triax 300 - Biaxial fibreglass above and below the core create a light flex, whilst triax fibreglass encases the core delivering extreme precision
Edgeless Tip and Tail - Reduces weight, and stops the tips and tails from catching
Semi-Cap Step Down ABS Sidewalls - A semi cap construction gives the strength and grip of sidewalls, but also saves weight and makes the skis easier to pivot
Carbon Kevlar - Strips of Carbon and Kevlar sit on top of the wood core to give better rebound, this makes the ski more playful and reactive
Binding Reinforcement - Extra fibreglass is placed in the centre of the ski to make the binding section of the ski stronger
