The orb freebird 2016 is 170 grams lighter per pair, thanks to new edges. The iconic, fluorescent yellow one-piece remains as faithful as ever.
Made for ski-touring, the orb freebird is extremely grippy and reassuring and the perfect companion for any vertical odyssey. Shaped for the high mountains with 90mm underfoot, it will accompany you on all of your adventures, even the most radical ones like skiing steeps.
With a long bow profile– flat tail & double radius tip– the orb freebird has a true freeride spirit with a tip of between 123 and 125 mm, and the vigour of a really grippy ski thanks to its classic camber.
Distinctly lighter than its all mountain twin with a Freebird Gene 1 core - a combination of paulownia wood at the extremities reinforced with poplar under the bindings – this approachable and robust ski is designed for high mountain use.
“You've no doubt already seen its yellow gleam sparkling from afar, tracing sweet lines on the climb, and skiing fluidly on the descent... or maybe propped up for the night against the wall of a mountain refuge. It's not an optical illusion, this ski is a true mountain goat which will suit anyone who places as much importance on the climb as on the descent,” says Camille Jaccoux.
