the program

102 mm dedicated to the spirit of adventure. A balance between lift and ski-ability, alpine conduct and progressive front rocker, the Navis Freebird is built for far-flung or daily quests.
The modernisation of our iconic model dedicated to touring with improvements made to the hold and the safety. To perfect a ski which already performs very well, the effort was concentrated on the extension of the side lines to gain stability and hold at high speed, but also we added a titanal plate under foot in order to double the wrenching force and also reinforce the solidity of the mounting of the binding inserts. Also new for the Navis Freebird, the addition of a new length of 173 cm which is placed midway between its two adjacent sizes, giving birth to four lengths: 167, 173, 179 and 185 cm.
They provide a brilliant balance between weight and performance which means I am confident on anything from the steepest lines to touring for fast powder or spring corn. The 102 mm waist is wide enough in the powder while still feeling stable on firmer snow. I am particularly impressed that this same pair of skis has given me around 200 days of fun. Ross Hewitt

  • Navis freebird! Backcountry Magazine Gear Guide Selection 2020
  • If there is something the navis freebird can’t do, we couldn’t find it. Backcountry Magazine editors choice 2018
  • Pour un ski plébiscité par les skieurs de pentes raides, le Navis Freebird ne se révèle pas si exclusif. Les testeurs l'ont trouvé à la fois souple, facile à conduire dans les neiges molles tout en restant relativement stable lorsqu'on accélère et qu'on le pousse dans ses retranchements. Dans les neiges dures, il n'est pas pénalisé par sa largeur de 102 mm au patin, et se trouve être plus vif que ses concurrents larges.
