Work a little less hard with the smooth-riding Havoc Ski from Black Diamond that uses a wood core and Dual Torsion Bow Technology to provide greater control with less chatter on crud, powder, and crust. More edge control is provided by the CNC-machined poplar core wrapped in Torsion Box construction with Power Edges.

Whether you're attacking a dawn patrol tour, free heeling down your favorite bowl or looking for a ski to rip the whole resort with, the Black Diamond Havoc Ski will keep that pow-swallowing grin on your face all day long. The Havoc loves to make turns through uber technical terrain and lay waste to high altitude powder fields after you get to the top of the skin.
A softer adaptation of the classic Black Diamond Havoc for easier turn initiation and a smoother edge hold even at lower speeds.
A touch softer than the original model, the Black Diamond Havoc skis now require less effort to turn yet are still hard-carving boards for fast descents on all types of snow. CNC-machined poplar wood core balances lively pop with a smooth, stable feel. Torsion Box technology creates unsurpassed torsional rigidity by forming a multilayer topsheet over the 3D core. Dual Torsion Bow™ technology features 2 ribs that run the length of the ski to effectively distribute power throughout the ski. Power distributed toward the tips and tails and smooth longitudinal flex create a forgiving, stable ride. Power Series ski construction features more layers of fiberglass than the Efficient Series, resulting in greater torsional power. Integrated 3D damping smooths out the jitters for a comfortable, secure feel at high speeds. High-speed sintered bases feature a cross-hatch stone grind for a balance of durability, glide and maintenance.
Description of Black Diamond Havoc Telemark / Randonee SkisBlack Diamond's big terrain twin-tip is designed for skiers who like to mix it up — a morning powder session, an afternoon in the park. Dual Torsion Bow technology and a 3-D Densolite core keep the ski agile and quick at any speed. Its snappy flex, perfect for mixed terrain and manky snow conditions, propels you from turn to turn. The upturned tail releases easier out of turns and keeps skin attachments off the snow.
