Black Crows Serpo Skis with Bindings

The Black Crows Serpo exhibits an astonishingly stable performance at high speeds and an impressive ability to be easily maneuvered at lower speeds. It does all of this on a perfectly versatile 93-millimeter waist, making it a fantastic choice for skiers looking to mix high-speed firm snow charging with all mountain friendliness. Built with a Poplar wood core and a dual H-shape Titanal laminate, the Serpo exudes the power, responsiveness and edge hold of a frontside ski but on a much more versatile platform. With the metal only extending partially into the tips and the tails, the extremities of the ski still provide forgiveness and allow the ski to handle varying terrain very well. A generous yet gradual rocker profile in the tip and a pronounced side cut invite you into a turn as you tip the ski on edge without feeling too hooky. The rocker also allows for a great deal of float in softer snow and allows the ski to be maneuverable at slower speeds despite its robust construction. With a 20-meter radius, the Serpo sure does love speed, but it doesn't require it. Pin the throttle or pump the brakes, this ski handles it all with ease. We often have to make a choice between stability and maneuverability in a ski, but the Serpo helps alleviate the pressure of making that choice by providing the best of both worlds.

How do you guys like this ski in bumps? I ski in the Pacific Northwest and am looking for a good "front side" ski for when we're lacking new snow and I'm mostly on groomers, finding bump runs, etc. Thanks for your help and advice!

HI Noah!
As much as I liked the Serpo on the groomers, I really enjoyed it in the bumps and trees. The shovel is flexible enough to drive into the front of the mogul, while the tails are supportive but not too stiff. Great for making quick, subsequent turns as well as letting it run and carving clean arcs on groomers. Have fun!

Trying to decide between the Black Crows Serpo and the Volkl Mantra M6. I am 55 years old, 5’10”, 190 lbs, and consider myself an advanced skier. I am an east coast skier with yearly trips out west. I have been on Volkls the past 15 years and my current skis are 2015 Kendo and 2015 Mantra (full rocker version). I like the playfulness of the full rocker Mantras but I find the edge hold lacking especially on very firm conditions common in upstate NY. The Kendos have great edge hold but sometimes I feel they just want to go fast and miss on the playfulness - my son has now claimed the Kendos skis so I don’t ski them anymore. I am looking at replacing the full rocker Mantras and thought I would just go with the Mantra M6 until I found your review on the Serpos - they seem like a good combination of frontside ripper and something you can be more creative on. I really don’t know much about Black Crows. Can you make a recommendation between these two skis? Both my current Volkls are 177 cm. I had an older Kendo at 184 cm and I prefer the shorter version. If you recommend the Serpo what length should I go with? 180 cm?

Thanks - Mike

Hi Mike!
The biggest difference is that the Serpo does not have metal in the tips and tails while the M6 has a full metal frame. The precision, especially in entry and exit of the turn in the M6 is greater than that of the Serpo, which is more playful and less demanding. Underfoot, they're about the same--excellent grip and energy, and a nice blend of shape and flex. We have loved the Serpo since we got on it last year, and our feelings have not changed--it's a great ski for those who want high-performance without the demand. I'd go 180.
