It's mud season now in Vermont's Champlain Valley (aka "the banana belt") but there's still plenty of snow up high! That means it's time to start selling off our 2012/2013 fleet of demo skis.
Here we have a pair of Black Diamond Warrant 178cm skis mounted up with Black Diamond O1 Mid-stiff telemark bindings in the Standard size. The Warrants are a perfect match for groomers, hardpack, or chalky open bowls with their aggressive sidecut and wide, soft-flexing tip. The traditional tip and tail rise mixed with a 95mm waist and full-length camber will give you a lively, snappy feel with full-length edge contact out of every turn and maximum stability. The Warrant's sidecut gives it a smaller turn radius than the similar Verdict.
Designed with 3D Sandwich construction, a poplar wood core with ABS tapered sidewalls, and Dual Torsion Bow Technology with two ribs, this ski delivers maximum energy return and puts power to the edges from tip to tail. The Warrant features more sidecut and is lighter for easier turning at any speed in comparison to the Verdict.
Our ski manager rates the condition of this pair as an 8 out of 10.
