Your trusty steed.
Ride off into the sunset with your Black Crows Daemon Skis underfoot and a post-shred beer in hand. After one day of crushing the resort on these playful planks, you'll wonder what life was like before you made acquaintance with your trusty new sidekicks. While the 99mm waist isn't exactly the powder-crushing beast you'll be reaching for after a double-digit dump, the versatility of these sticks is hard to match.
The full reverse camber makes for a quick and responsive turn initiation while you're dodging tight trees, and the light and playful poplar wood core will have you hucking and slashing your way all over the hill. The layer of Titanal under two thirds of the ski assures a solid flex underfoot for stability while you're clocking high speeds down the mountain.

A New Beginning?
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
A strange title, I know. The Black Crows Daemon had my shape-nerd intellect curious as it is a thinner based shape with flat camber underfoot to rocker in tip and tail and a reinforced under binding area. What it equates to is a ski that bends what can be done on it in a way where things on one single pair of skis weren't possible until now.
The Daemon found me doing two things fast. One was almost hip on the ground carves which came easier than expected. The second was a tail butter off the very next hump where I just shook my head and thought to myself "this may be where the ski industry could be going."
I've seen a lot of flat camber daily driver skis recently come into the fold. This one is a more serious one that requires a bit of a driver. But, if you do drive it a bit and get playful where applicable, you'll get a variance of performance between all mountain and park the likes of which you may have never seen before. This Daemon is a brave new world and those who can drive the versatility out of it won't be found wanting.
