2022 Black Crows Divus Skis
Black Crows Divus Skis
The Black Crows Divus is a true on-piste carving ski geared towards aggressive skiers looking for a a frontside ski with a slightly wider platform. A traditional cambered profile runs throughout most of the length of the ski with a slight amount of rocker in the tip and the tail to allow the ski to release out of a turn when needed. The generous amount of camber not only provides steadfast edge grip on firm snow, but it allows the ski to rebound, giving it a nice energetic feel in the exit of a turn. Black Crows uses their signature H-Shape dual Titanal laminate in the Divus. This provides a lot of torsional stiffness through the central portion of the ski and allows the tips and tails to remain quiet without adding a ton of weight to the extremities of the ski. The metal doesn't extend through the entire ski, so you still get some forgiveness out of the tip and tail when you need it. At 82 millimeters under the boot, the Divus boasts a slighter wider chassis than most rue frontside carving skis, but thanks to its robust core and Titanal laminates it doesn't sacrifice any torsional stiffness. Designed with a 17-meter turn radius, the Divus likes fairly tight turns at high speeds and thus provides a very dynamic ski experience for aggressive skiers looking for a frontside ski that crushes groomers and firm snow.

Brahma 82 has more horsepower to it while the Divus is a bit more easygoing. If you are looking for a more aggressive ski to handle higher speeds and longer turns, I'd go Brahma, but for general front-side carving without having to work too hard, I think Divus is great and a whole lot of fun.
