Black Crows Vertis Skis 2019

Light, with incredible edge-to-edge quickness, the Black Crows Vertis Skis are a piste specialist's dream. Snappy performance and instantaneous direction changes mean tons of fun in short radius turns and bumps. As with other Black Crows skis, the Vertis relies on a solid wood core (Poplar in this case) and a semi-cap construction that concentrates energy under your feet for superior edgehold but keeps the tips and tails light for maneuverability.

Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

With an all-new design reminiscent of something out of the Transformer movies, the Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings promise to set a new bar for power and reliability in the backcountry. In ski mode, the Shift MNC looks like a low profile alpine binding with a long nose, but pull the SHIFT bar on the toe rearward and a set of tech "wings" pops open for touring (yes, you will need a boot with tech fittings to skin uphill). The beauty of the Shift is that it skis pretty much just like a 13 DIN alpine binding (the Warden 13 comes to mind) but weighs under 900 grams (compared to nearly 1500 grams for a Guardian) and features a much smoother touring action. If you're bummed by the weight of your frame AT bindings but are wary of using a tech binding for committed hard charging, the Shift MNC is the burning light at the end of the tunnel.
