Details

The Raven is the perfect blend of optimal weight efficiency and maximum downhill performance. With the Raven’s smooth rocker profile your tips naturally rise to the surface of the snow, making breaking trail on the skin track and shredding fresh powder easier than you thought possible. When you find yourself in firm or variable snow the ski’s sidecut geometry works in conjunction with the rocker shape to ensure maximum stability and confidence.

The 4-LOCK™ System works by inserting the self-locking skin strap through an inconspicuous hole in the tail, locking to the ski and eliminating frustrating gear failure forever.

The Pomoca skin weighs in at less than 240g per skin and folds up impossibly compact, saving you more weight on your feet and more space in your pack than any other set up on the market. It's simply the lightest, most reliable, and easiest to use skin system to date.

Construction Features

1 Aspen Maple Core

Aspen Maple Core

Made from the highest quality Aspen and Maple Canada has to offer, these cores are loaded with unwavering energy and pop. These pure hardwood cores don’t just guarantee a smooth damp right, but also provide long lasting durability and incredible binding retention.

2 Carbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber

When stability and energy are a must and weight is a factor, we add pre stretched carbon fiber stringers to the core. Far superior to the flex and pop of traditional fiberglass, carbon fiber gives you the liveliness you want at a weight that keeps your skis feeling light on your feet. These

3 Neotip

Neotip

After experimenting for years in the Whiteroom, we discovered that the addition of a Neoprene insert in the tip of the ski drastically reduced chatter, increased overall damping, and helped eliminate frustrating tip delamination.

4 Sintered Base

Sintered Base

This premium base material is known in the ski industry as ‘Race Base’ because it is fast AF! Integrated with carbon to further strengthen its gliding properties these 1.4 mm base are tough as can be, to ensure you go fast season after season.

Always bring your... Ravens?

This is my second season skiing these bad larrys. Love them - last season was high and dry in the Tetons and yet I didn't stop skiing them! From hop turns in wind blasted couloirs to recycled powder during our 2 month drought, these skis performed. This season we've been fortunate enough to have more 'hero pow' and man it's like I have a whole new ski. The ravens love big long turns in powder but are nimble in trees. I just wish the bindings I mounted to them would stop breaking... oh well!

Great backcountry ski!

I am 46 5'8" 170 advanced not expert live in SW CO. Bought these to upgrade touring set up based largely on my positive experiences with the devestator and the similar rocker technology. Really pleased with this ski. Uphill it glides and tours really well, and both the included pocoma skins together weight less than a single BD ascension for my older icelantic vanguard 107s of the same length. My favorite thing about this ski is how easy it is to initiate turns in heavy, settled backcountry snow. The rockering makes to float more than one might expect for its width and not having a big shovel. First day out skiing settled week old , wind drifted powder was a blast. THe 4lock system is great, and really easy to pull skins, even with them still attached to boots. Cons: days 2-3 with this ski I skied a very warm atmospheric river storm which unusually thick and heavy snow and got snow and ice sticking to the base of the ski - had to stop a couple times to scrape. Gave it a quick wax and it got colder - no issues since. Touring in a resort area it is definitely possible to carve these, but much more difficult than the Dev or MSP - if you are looking for 1 ski for resort and bc, im not sure this is the best choice. The pocoma skins glide great and pack down to nothing, but they definteily dont have as much traction on sunbaked uphill as a nylon skin like the BD ascension. If these are your first touring ski, you might prefer nylon skins or take a day out with someone who can help you get your uphill form really solid so you dont slide back on a steep uptrack. Overall a great, fun dedicated BC ski and im excited to ski these for many more seasons.

Best backcountry skis I’ve owned

These rip! Light on the uphill, killer on the down. Have been awesome so far in the Colorado backcountry. And the 4-Lock system is genius, will never go back to regular skins with tail clips again!

Raven

Quick trial run inbounds on early season groomers and they performed flawlessly! Excited to get them into the BC.

Fun, Easy, and Durable

I'm finally writing a review of these phenomenal skis now that I've started season 3 on them. I reach for these skis most backcountry days, and certainly any time there has been fresh snow. Their shape makes them so incredibly predictable and forgiving in weird backcountry snow. They are a dream in powder, but also get me out of so many jams when the snow gets punchy, breakable, grabby, etc. These things truly make me a better skier than I am! I've known how much I love the way these babies SKI for a long time. However, in the early season low-tide conditions that I've subjected them to this year so far, I've finally (unfortunately?) found out just how durable these skis are! I have hit way too many granite boulders with these skis in the past week, and I cringed to transition and put skins back on, only to see the damage left behind. Not so - the bases are so hard and durable, and the edges, while suffering some obvious scratching, were in such better shape than I had feared! Again in summary - there are so many (correct) positive reviews of how these handle and how fun they are to ski. I wanted to add the note that after ~55 days on snow and an especially horrendous dose of abuse this past week, the skis are in such great shape. Cannot recommend highly enough!!
