Product Info

Although they were originally crafted for professional ski patrols, the Black Crows Orb Patrol Skis can now be yours! Modeled after the Freebird edition of the Orb, these bad boys are light enough to tour confidently upon but they feature a reinforced topsheet that you're unlikely to ever see anyone else with. In addition to being light, the Orb Patrol skis incredibly well and their versatile 91mm waist width is right at home whether you're looking for an edge on an icy couloir, railing down groomers, or making turns in an untouched side stash. Roll up to the lift and/or trailhead with a truly unique and distinguished ski and nab a pair of the extremely limited Black Crows Orb Patrol Skis.
