Black Diamond Megawatt: Black Diamond's original big-mountain powder slayer, the completely redesigned Megawatt returns with a host of tweaks that add much-improved stability and versatility on hard snow while retaining the unsinkable, playful performance in soft snow that skiers have come to love. Black Diamond stiffened the rockered tip and lengthened the edge contact, and a tighter turn radius now allows effortless turns of any shape, at any speed. 125 mm waist with a stiffer tip and shifted-back wide point for improved turnability and hard-snow performance, Rocker tip and Semi-Rocker tail for surfy balance in any snow conditions, making it more forgiving and nimble than the Gigawatt. A poplar and birch Internal Wall Core Technology brings added pop and stability, while "Formula One Technology," which has three ribs combined with torsion box construction for maximum torsional stiffness ensures solid grip on firm snow. Optimal use: 80% soft snow / 20% hard snow
A full-on powder monster, the fat and rockered Black Diamond Megawatt Ski soars across the deepest of snow with the grace of a swan. And it's intelligent, too, with a less pronounced tail rocker and hard-carving traditional camber underfoot, for when the pow sluffs and the hardpack surfaces or when you're billy-goating to the pow. The wide waist and shifted-back center make this surprisingly versatile ski easier to maneuver. Its huge turn radius, pre-preg composite, and a poplar core give it a stable, smooth ride at hyper speeds. Sandwich construction and ABS sidewalls give this ski turnability and edging power, don't you doubt it, even for a ski that lives for pow. This is Black Diamond's fattest big-mountain ski.
The epic continues with the third generation of Black Diamond's legendary powder slayer, and it just keeps getting better. With the addition of sidewalls, the Black Diamond Megawatt gets even quicker and more stable on firm snow, while retaining the premium powder high performance it has come to be known for.
