    Built for “4x4 or chains required” kind of days, the Black Diamond Boundary 115 ski is a rockered pow slayer for the biggest overnight totals of the season. Our widest freeride ski, the Boundary 115 is outfitted with a playful modern shape and fat 115-mm waist with enough turning capacity for tight trees and narrow chokes. The Boundary’s poplar core and pre-preg fiberglass layup make for solid power transmission. The Boundary also features our Sidewall Dampening System, which employs a multi-density sidewall panel just behind the contact point to create an ultra-damp vibration barrier between the ski tip and the binding.

    At the end of the day, we all ski in the backcountry for the same reason—untracked pow, and the Black Diamond Link 105 ski combines a lightweight construction with a floaty modern shape and 105-mm waist for top-notch deep-snow performance. The light paulownia wood core and pre-preg fiberglass layup trim ounces while still offering solid power transmission, and the Rocker tip and tail keep you afloat and make for easy skinning on the deepest days. To eliminate chatter, our Sidewall Dampening System uses a multi-density sidewall panel just behind the contact point to create an ultra-damp vibration barrier between the ski tip and the binding. The Link’s stainless steel tail protector features a notch to secure your skin tail hardware.
