Black Crows Nocta 176  2013

176 / 141-122-135 / 18

Manufacturer's Description

The Nocta was designed by Julien Regnier, a pioneer in reverse camber development. The modern sidecut makes the Nocta a powerful weapon for powder skiers, while its soft and dynamic flex allows for great handling in any snow conditions. With its 18 meter sidecut radius, the Nocta also carves well on hard snow.

DOUBLE BEAK technology: its front rocker, long and gradual, allows the Nocta to be very effective in deep snow and its back rocker, more moderate, provides an excellent stability at high speed. The volume distribution also ensures a maximum efficiency in powder snow, notably due to its floating and stabilizing tail. Lightweight and well balanced, centre mounted, this master of freestyle backcountry is the weapon for big jumps and switch run-ins.

Float, handling and ease are the magic words for tomorrow’s deep powder and adventure ski, and so the Nocta, both a formidable powder weapon and a versatile ski, makes this vision a reality.

“With a short underfoot camber which allows you to forget the size of the tips and the length of the ski, you have a very playful ski even on hard snow and the short turn radius brings back the body angles and the sensations of snowboarding in the early 90s.” - Julien Regnier
