the program

In its famous fluorescent yellow monobloc style, the Orb Freebird with rocker has become the standard for all types of touring.
It has a superbly sure grip, the perfect companion for vertical adventures. Sized for mountain skiing with a 91 mm waist, light and highly skiable, it will see you through all your exploits, including the steepest of slopes.
Precise and reliable, the Orb Freebird is my only choice when I want to ski something really steep without knowing what kind of snow awaits me, but also when I start my day on piste not knowing how it will end. They feel great on the way up - light on the feet, light on your back and on the way down they're really stable on steep, icy snow and the rocker makes them very playful and maneuvrable.

nitty gritty

  • Moderate width: 91 mm waist.
  • Front rocker: pivot and float.
  • Medium classic camber: classic camber underfoot with moderate ski/snow contact, giving a good balance between stability and manoeuvrability.
  • Titanal reinforcement under the bindings, better hold.
  • Moderate flex: a tolerant and comfortable ski.
  • Plastic insert and cut-out on the tail: easier to put skins on.
  • Weight: 2660g/pair @166cm - 2750g/pair @172cm - 2990g/pair @178 - 3150g/pair @183.
