Black Diamond Kilowatt (2008)
The Kilowatt has all the flex of an oak stump, sticks to groomers, and doesn’t get nervous at speed. In powder it’s smooth and predictable.
Good performance in crud and on groomers for such a narrow big-mountain ski. And the firm tail pops you out of turns.
A bit stiff for slow turns and too narrow for waist-deep days.
"If you want something light and easy to turn—despite its stiffness—this is your ski." —Matt Ross
