Product Info

Black Diamond Verdict Skis 2011: The verdict is in. The jury has spoken, and the Black Diamond Verdict Skis are guilty of high backcountry performance. This award-winning ski is back for 2010, packed with a new core technology and construction for intense, all-mountain performance. The powerful, race-inspired design of the Verdict bridges big mountain and in-bounds skiing, while the Verdict’s 100 mm waist and Formula One Technology provide exceptional agility and render decisive, high-speed turns. The geometry is nimble, with a durable tip and stable mid-section that let you avoid sketchy terrain like OJ avoids jail sentences.

Why so much camber?

Pros

  • Good Grip
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Poor Flotation

Best Uses

  • Powder

Comments about Black Diamond Verdict Skis 2011:

I got these as a 100% touring setup, mounted with Fritschi Freerides. They have a HUGE (~1") amount of camber - not sure why BD decided to make a mid-fat to low-end fat ski with so much camber. They definitely should be flat or even rockered. That said, they still ski the pow pretty well. They are super light, easy to tour, quick edge to edge for being as fat as they are.

    Comments about Black Diamond Verdict Skis 2011:

    Good skis for touring, float well in powder and I am pretty big, 6'3" 235. They also carve well on the groomers and such because of the camber even though they are 190 cm. Good all around ski.
