Black Diamond Convert Ski -

Maybe it's called the Black Diamond Convert Ski because once you get on dawn patrol and experience the silence and untracked snow you never want to go back to the hustle and sloppy seconds in-resort. Or maybe it's called the Convert because once you ski this rockered mid-fatty you'll never set eyes on another ski for as long as you live. Whatever the reason, this versatile backcountry ski has it all: pow-friendly waist, rockered tip and tail, traditional camber underfoot, and sandwich/sidewall construction. It has pre-preg fiberglass weaved laminate for stability and torsional stiffness edge-to-edge. It even has a stainless steel SkinLock clip to keep you skinned and speedy on the hike. The Formula One 3D Light construction sheds weight compared to the big-mountain line, which helps with the ascent but also when your feet leave the snow off a backcountry kicker. All the cool kids are doing it. The Convert sits in the middle of the Freetour Series from Black Diamond, just about as pleasing as it gets.

The Black Diamond Convert Ski hits the sweet spot of being light enough to dominate the skin track, but girthy and rockered enough to have ridiculous amounts of fun on the way down. A light, semi-fat, rockered powder ski engineered with touring efficiency in mind, the Black Diamond Convert is solid and surfy in deep snow, while its 105 mm waist lends confidence when conditions turn variable. Whether it’s a quick hit out the resort’s backcountry gates or an objective hours from the trailhead, the Convert will get you there with minimal uphill effort.

It's not that hard to be seduced by Black Diamond Convert skis. The Convert does everything, on or off piste, pretty darn well. Traditional side-cut and camber, under foot, but moderate rocker at the tip and tail join in a congregation of harmonic skiing bliss. The Convert was a staff favorite, at demos, last spring. Can we get an Amen!


Ideal for weight-conscious backcountry missions where technical precision and soft-snow performance are equally important, the Carbon Convert weighs 380 grams less per pair than the original thanks to its carbon fiber construction.

Black Diamond Convert Ski Review:


Just got the 172 in the mail and they came in at 1664 and 1642gr each. That's the weight the 180 is supposed to weigh. IDK if this is a fluke of a pair, or if the weights listed on their website are all off.
