If a crown for the mythical quiver of one ski existed, the powder destroying, hybrid fun-shape Black Diamond AMPerage would be a strong contender. The addition of 8 mm ABS sidewalls has given the second generation of our popular Black Diamond AMPerage ski a new bite on firm snow, and they stiffened it beyond the contact point in the tail for easy landings. Whether drifting smear-turns in deep powder or laying trenches on the groomer back to the lift, this ski loves it all.
It's a little bit (back)country and a little bit rock and roll! The Black Diamond AMPerage skis can transition from powder noodling to hardpack jamming without getting hung-up in the transition. The dramatic sidecut and 115mm waist make the AMPerage fairly turny, but the tip and tail rocker don't allow the skis to get hooky or hang-up in a mosh pit of wet powder. Ample waist and traditional camber under foot for ease transitions from powder to hardpack Full tip and tail Rocker for tip dive avoidance Poplar and birch Internal Wall Core Technology plus an Ollie Bar in the tail for stability for take-offs and landings Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction for maximum torsional stiffness Optimal use: 70% soft snow / 30% hard snow
The all-new Black Diamond Amp is designed to send back country booters, drift smear turns through wind-buff and or arcing on the groomers.
The Black Diamond AMPerage Ski, their second-widest big mountain ski next to the Megawatt, is a powder ski with all-mountain versatility. It's got fat dimensions, rockered tip and tail, and a large turn radius for float, stability, and speed. Traditional camber underfoot and sandwich/sidewall construction give it pop and carving power. That lively poplar wood core also smooths out hyperspeed rides. Suddenly, landings are silkier than ever, ollies come fast and natural, and deep, high-speed drift-turns feel like a high-five with an old friend. Edging across an exposed chute to access pow' With camber and sidewalls, no problem. Staring down a bottomless bowl of Sierra cement' Rockered tip and plenty of girth at your service.
