BD Ski Demo for '08 Skis

The Black Diamond Demo at Brighton this year just so happened to land on the same day as their 19 inch dump of snow. Perfect for trying out some fatty tele skis.

Black Diamond Havoc Ski
The Havoc, despite the nasty looking skull on the tip its a killer all around ski that drives really well. With having the new dump of powder it was a great ski for the afternoon.

  • Perfect for the bumps!
  • Good float in the powder.
  • Snappy, light, and responsive.

On the Swank Scale this gets a big

Black Diamond Verdict Ski
The Verdict was great for the morning powder. It was great to try this out on a big powder day. It's a heavy ski so if you have an extra loot of money lying around, this would be great for the morning and busts through the crud in the afternoon.

  • Solid powder ski.
  • Heavy, but worth it.
  • Crud destroyer.
On the Swank Scale I give it a Stellar Swank.

Black Diamond Kilowatt SkiOk the Kilowatt. Take both of those skis above and mush them together with what Seinfeld would classify as "Jujubees being cemented with coke on the theater floor since the premire of Shawshank Redemption".
  • Sick float in the powder.
  • Bomber Bump ski.
  • Light, but does well for crud.
On the swank scale this is going to get a Super Dank Swank for being a great all around ski that just rocks every terrain on the hill.

Great day on the hill! I skied all the skis with BD o2 bindings and are my absolute favorite binding.
