Product Info

Escape the weekend crowds by hunting offpiste powder on the Black Diamond Carbon Megawatt Skis. Black Diamond s new ABS sidewall construction stripped another 500 grams from the Carbon Megawatt, making it incredibly light for its size, all the while increasing energy transmission to the sidewalls for increased edge hold and power. The result? Calling in sick for mid-week lift-served pow days is also an option on the Carbon Megawatts, thanks to the stiff carbon fiber reinforcement and semi-rockered tail for hard charging fun.

Product Details

Rocker Type

RockerBy tuning the rise and length of tip and tail rocker to each ski's intended use, Black Diamond are able to dial in the exact character they want - from deep-snow specialists to hybrid fun-shapes. They have grouped rockered ski profiles into three categories - Rocker, Semi-Rocker and Traditional based on the tip or tail's rise length.

178 cmTip 426 mm Rocker / Tail 213 mm Semi-Rocker

3D Sandwich Light ConstructionThe FreeTour skis are sidewall, aggressive and touring focused with performance.

Formula One Technology™F1 Tech is used for skis larger than 100 mm underfoot. This technology requires three major ribs for longitudinal stiffness and reduced weight.


3D CNC Wood Core: PaulowniaA lightweight, fast-growing and easily renewable wood with the strength of poplar and the weight of balsa

Carbon FiberUltra light construction while retaining stiffness and stability.

New Ski Construction: Pre-Preg FiberglassNew factory, new construction: All Black Diamond skis are now built using state-of-the-art, clean pre-preg fiberglass. Pre-preg allows Black Diamond to control the exact amount of epoxy resin used in each ski, in order to maximize the fiber's contribution to strength and stiffness. This enables weight reduction while retaining strength, precision and consistency in each ski.


New Ski Construction: ABS SidewallsAll Black Diamond skis are now ABS built with sidewall construction, resulting in lighter, higher performing skis. The Carbon Megawatt comes with narrow 5 mm sidewalls for reduced weight.


P-Tex 4000 BaseHigh-speed sintered bases with a fine crosshatch, state-of-the-art stone-grind finish provide the best balance of durability, glide and ease of maintenance.


Power EdgesThick edge for freeride durability.

Additional Features
