Black Diamond Carbon Megawatt Backcountry Skis - 2013/2014

This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • The lightweight, touring-specific version of Black Diamond's hallmark powder ski gains sidewall construction and loses another 1.1 lbs. per pair this year
  • Part of the FreeTour series, the Carbon Megawatt blends alpine-inspired performance with backcountry efficiency for use in deep powder
  • Rockered tips, semi-rockered tails and 120mm waists provide a stable feel as you float through the soft snow
  • Formula One Technology™ features three ribs that run the length of the ski to deliver liveliness and power for hard-charging skiing
  • 3D Sandwich Light construction layers fiberglass and carbon fiber above and below the light paulownia wood cores for excellent torsional stiffness with very little weight
  • 5mm beveled ABS sidewall construction with thick Power Edges keeps the skis stable at high speeds
  • Stainless-steel notches at the tails keep climbing skins (sold separately) securely attached and centered
  • High-speed sintered bases on the Black Diamond Carbon Megawatt skis feature a cross-hatch stone grind for the best balance of durability, glide and maintenance
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
