At a low weight of 1,120 grams, the Blacklight 95 is a wide, high-performance touring ski that wins points for top performance on the descent.
The Blacklight 95 is the widest ski in the Blacklight Speed series. It was developed for ski tourers for whom no distance is too far in their quest for perfect powder. If you would like a ski with strong downhill performance, but at the same time want to be as light and as efficient as possible on the climb to your perfect line, then the Blacklight 95 is the model for you. With 95 mm underfoot, a large turning radius, and an extended tip rocker, this ski is the one made for being fast, carving big turns in the snow, and enjoying pow to the fullest.
The Blacklight 95 has a 100% “UD” carbon top layer. UD is the abbreviation to describe the “uni” or one-directional arrangement of the fibers. Compared to classic carbon construction, UD carbon lends higher tensile strength and greater resilience while maintaining a lower density. The Blacklight 95 has a 100% premium Paulownia wood core. Thanks to its 3D construction, the ski lowers its total weight to reduce its swing weight in front of and behind the binding area to essentially reduce the overall weight of the ski. You get extremely stable ski handling despite its low weight.
The rocker construction at the tip and tail and the sidecut are also adapted for each ski size – a unique feature in the ski touring market. This keeps the effective edge length equally proportional to each size, allowing it to function independent of the size. In order to guarantee the best possible power transfer on the ski, the Blacklight is constructed with a full ABS sidewall. In addition, the base has a special racing grind for even more speed. Meaning you can make up valuable time in the “race” to carve the first turns.
