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.

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!

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.
