DESCRIPTION

Why should a classic-dimension touring ski be classically boring on the way down? Mixing tip and tail rocker with an easy-turning hybrid shape, the Black Diamond Current makes precision turns on hardpack and is remarkably fun and stable in soft or variable snow. 

  • Tour-friendly and agile 86 mm waist with Rocker tip and tail
  • A more playful shape than the Aspect and a narrower, lighter version of the Revert
  • Flat Sandwich with pre-preg composite construction and paulownia wood core
  • 5 mm beveled ABS sidewall with Racing Edges
  • SkinLock tail tabs
  • Optimal use: 50% soft snow / 50% hard snow
ROCKER PROFILE

ROCKER PROFILE

Rocker has moved from a niche, powder-specific design to a versatile tool that allows for easy turn initiation, smooth turn release and agile turn-shape variation in any condition. By tuning the rise and length of tip and tail rocker to each ski’s intended use, we’re able to dial in the exact character we want—from deep-snow specialists to hybrid fun-shapes. We have grouped our rockered ski profiles into three categories—Rocker, Semi-Rocker and Traditional based on the tip or tail’s rise length.
