User Review: Black Diamond Aspect Ski
Source: tested or reviewed it for the manufacturer (keep)
My daily quiver. This ski is perfect to get everywhere every day. You can't go wrong: powder, crud, wind pack, ice, skinning. It's more than a touring ski, it's surprisingly stable at good speed. Honestly, 1 ski that does everything perfect doesn't exist. This is close. Just a fun ski, day in and day out.
- Nimble, light, can go far
- Stable through uneven terrain
- Floaty for its size, the big tip floats.
- Lightness comes to a price, side edge is beveled which could be more fragile should you hit a rock on the wrong spot
176 cm. Mounted with BD O1.
I'm 6'2'' 180 pound. I ski everything. Pro patro for 10 years now.
When I got the Aspect, I thought I would only use it outabound. It ended up being my favorite everyday ski at work and on my days at the mountain, riding a lift or going far in the backcountry.
I still have a 95mm and a 115 mm ski. Those just don't get as much days out. Had them for 3 years now and still very satisfied. I ski the East.
