A fast-and-light powder seeker, the Black Diamond Drift ski has a soft-flexing, early-rise tip for excellent flotation and smooth turns on backcountry tours.
Part of the FreeTour series, the Drift blends alpine-inspired performance with backcountry efficiency for use in both the sidecountry and backcountry
Semi-rockered tips and tails rise up in deep snow to make trail breaking and turning easier
100mm waists and camber underfoot provide a good blend of soft-snow and hard-snow performance
3 ribs with carbon fiber reinforcements run the length of the ski to deliver liveliness and power for hard-charging skiing
Lightweight paulownia wood cores surrounded by Torsion Box construction provide torsional power and energy pop
Torsion Box technology wraps fiberglass around the core like a burrito
Stainless-steel notches at the tails keep climbing skins (sold separately) securely attached and centered
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
High-speed sintered bases on the Black Diamond Drift skis feature a cross-hatch stone grind for the best balance of durability, glide and maintenance
