Product Info

A new all-mountain ripper for people who live in snowy climates, the Black Diamond Impulse 104 Skis thrive in deep pow but still finesse a fine carve on the groomed - not an easy combination of abilities. This ski uses a traditional Poplar-cored, full sidewall design that's been proven over and over again to work. No gimmicks, all performance, 100% smiles.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker

Core

Engineered Poplar Wood CorePoplar wood is the material of choice for skis where downhill performance, toughness, and torsional stiffness is a priority. Its longitudinal stiffness offers a consistent contribution to the flex profile, while its shear and compressive strength allow the composite layers to properly carry the dynamic loads when the ski bends, and its natural damping properties smooth out the chatter. Poplar is nearly ideal as a ski core material when downhill performance is the top priority.

Laminates

High Performance Pre-Preg FiberglassHigh-strength E-Glass fiber is oriented along multiple axes and optimized to provide a smooth and consistent flex profile, longitudinal strength, and torsional stiffness. Toughened epoxy resin is added in precise quantities prior to ski manufacturing to ensure precise weight and consistent quality. This layup is engineered to minimize weight for uphill missions without sacrificing durability or downhill ski performance.

Internal Dampening LaminateElastomeric materials are strategically located within the ski to improve damping and edge control. These layers serve both to absorb high-frequency vibration and also to allow some shear between internal layers, improving both performance and durability.

Titanal Binding PlateA high-strength metal plate is embedded underneath the composite layer to ensure that binding screw retention is never a concern. This plate also serves to increase torsional stiffness and provides a solid foundation underfoot.

Sidewalls

Full-Perimeter ABS SidewallsABS sidewalls wrap the entire perimeter of the ski, offering optimal durability and damping. Used on skis designed for maximum downhill performance and durability, but optimized for minimal weight.

Base

PTEX 4500 BaseIndustry-accepted as the premium base material, this sintered UHMW-PE base provides very high density for excellent durability and wax retention, combined with high carbon content for superior glide.

Additional Features

ABS Tail Protector

Integrated Skin Clip Slot

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
