Built to ski the deepest powder far from the trailhead, the Carbon Megawatt provides freeride performance in a package light enough for 10,000 ft. days in the backcountry.

Black Diamond's Carbon Megawatt Ski is something of an anomaly in the world of touring-specific skis. Toting all the features of a big mountain powder ski, the Carbon Megawatt sports full ABS sidewalls, a 147mm shovel, and a girthy 120mm waist, but still weighs under eight pounds. This means you can log in huge vert on the deepest days, without compromising skiability. The Megawatt has been the go-to powder ski within Black Diamond's line for quite a few seasons now, but never at this weight. Weighing a full 240 grams less than last year's carbon model, Black Diamond went with an ultralight engineered wood core to save on weight for this year's Megawatt. They also pulled the edges back from the tip to lighten them up a bit, and then used their Formula One 3D Light Sandwich pre-preg carbon construction to bring the weight down even further for true skin track competency. The SkinLock tail tab gives your climbing skin's tail attachment a non-slip home, while the rockered tip makes braking trail a whole lot easier, while also providing that smeary feel in the deep stuff. So, when the snow's as deep as the skin track is long look no further than the Carbon Megawatt.

The Black Diamond Carbon Megawatt is a staggering 1340 g (2.95 lb) lighter than the standard version and negates the need to sacrifice powder performance in a touring ski. The lightweight touring version of the Megawatt powder ski, the Carbon Megawatt features a carbon fiber sidewall construction, making it a fantastic high-performance touring ski. With the long Rocker tip and floaty 120 mm waist it is the tool of choice for weekends spent accessing deep backcountry powder, the Carbon Megawatt will also attack in-bounds laps with ease during those mid-week dumps.
