Black Diamond Element Ski -

Squeeze into the packed tram clutching the Black Diamond Women's Element Ski in one hand and your ski poles in another. This slarvy big-mountain plank dwarfs the selection of skis around you and gets more than a few curious stares, but you don't mind as all you can think about is steep and deep lines ahead. Black Diamond gave this women-specific ski a generous amount of rocker in its tip and tail, slight camber underfoot, and a 115mm waist so you can really shine on big-mountain lines, through steep trees, and, of course, in powder. 

Brought to you by the same twisted minds who crafted its brother in crime, the Men's AMPerage, the Element features a reworked, women-specific flex pattern for more responsive turn initiation. If you're worried about simply getting a dumbed-down version of the AMPerage model, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that Black Diamond doesn't believe in such nonsense. As a result the torsional stiffness of the Element is the same for the AMPerage—the available power doesn't change, just the expected applied longitudinal force. 

Designed with Formula One 3D sandwich technology, the Element is built to handle higher torsional loads with ease for high-performance freeride results. Its 8mm ABS sidewalls provide durability and protection against mechanical damage or regular skier abuse. Made with a poplar 3D CNC wood core, the Element offers a good balance of pop (i.e., energy return) with a classic, smooth feel.

To reduce weight while retaining strength, precision, and consistency in the Element, Black Diamond uses Pre-peg composite construction. Used primarily by the aerospace industry, pre-peg allows BD to control the exact amount of epoxy resin used in the Element and to maximize the fiber's contribution to strength and stiffness. Oh, and this beauty of a powder ski features Power edges for superb freeride durability.

Evo (2012)
The Black Diamond Element Skis are hybrid skiing at its best and inspired from big-mountain powder lines, technical freeride comp skiing and everything in between. Based on the platform of the AMPerage, the Element features a re-worked flex profile to create a completely new ski engineered for women - no dumbing-down here. Its deep sidecut, 115 mm waist, full tip and tail rocker, and underfoot camber add up to a floaty ski that's as comfortable sending backcountry booters as it is smearing through windbuff or arcing on groomers.

The Black Diamond Element is the women's specific equivalent of the Black Diamond Amperage. With full tip and tail rocker and nice underfoot camber, the Element will take you comfortably through the resort or the backcountry.


Want something more out of your women's-specific ski? The Element is the ticket. This isn't your standard shrink-and-pink women's ski - it's for the woman who likes to rip on all terrain from big-mountain powder to groomers.

You will be sending it on this playful, high-performance ski with full tip and tail Rocker matched with underfoot camber and women-specific flex for effortless transitions from powder to hardpack. The Element is designed with Poplar and birch Internal Wall Core Technology plus an Ollie Bar in the tail for extra pop on take-offs when hucking backcountry booters as well as to prevent wheelie-outs on landings. Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction gives this ski maximum torsional rigidity.

Optimal use: 40% soft snow / 60% hard snow

Gearx (2014)

A women’s-specific version of Black Diamond's popular AMPerage ski, the Element is so fun and easy in deep snow and on hardpack that it might seem too good to be true. The addition of 8 mm ABS sidewall construction to the second generation of this model lends what was already an excellent ski newfound precision on hard snow and a stiffer tail for stability in all conditions when skiing at speed. What remains is the effortless powder carving, slashing and float of this women’s-specific hybrid fun-shape.
