We carried Black Crows a couple of years ago. Consumer reception was tepid at best. Demo feedback was mostly, meh... They were just ok, nothing special. Yes, there is a bit of a design difference (mostly shape and camber profile) with their skis, but no distinctly, unique tech or materials. I understand the Amer model (Atomic, Salomon, Armada) all brands owned by the same parent company, with slight different materials and design ethos for each brand, but all the materials and technology are unique and "in-house". Black Crows now seems to be developing some momentum in the overall marketplace, but nothing dramatically new, as far of designs vs. two seasons ago. I'm just wondering what the buzz is about. They don't make anything targeted at my type of skis or skiing. (Traditional, Directional, carving oriented, two layers of metal, wood core) So there stuff is all lost on me.
