Description

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.

  • Floaty 115-mm waist for deep-snow performance
  • Rocker tip and tail with traditional camber underfoot
  • 3D Sandwich construction with pre-preg fiberglass, stacked sidewalls and poplar wood core
  • Sidewall Dampening System for reduced chatter in firm conditions
  • Optimal use: 70% soft snow / 30% hard snow

Boundary Ski Series Construction

 
Sidewall Damping System

Sidewall Damping System

To bring the dampness of a freeride ski to a lightweight backcountry construction, we employed a layer of rubber in the sidewalls of the ski, slightly behind the contact point. This innovative construction greatly reduces chatter in firmer conditions and allows us to forgo the use of metal in the layup, creating a ski that is extremely damp with drastic weight savings over traditional freeride constructions.

Boundary 115 Ski is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a nice surprise... I couldn't find many online/expert reviews on these skis but decided to purchase a pair ( 185cm) when they went on sale last spring. I am 6ft and 185 lbs. The Boundary 115 is fun to ski and have a consistently smooth, steady feel to them. This fall/winter I have ridden them in various conditions ( fresh powder, groomers, icy -windblown, chopped up late day pow, firm buttery fresh groomed) and they have been a solid performer. They fill a sweet spot between my Zealots ( 192 cm) and Megawatts ( 188 cm). Good job BD ski engineers and designers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shreds the pow, crud and chunky snow Note: I'm skiing 2014 Amperage, which I believe is the same ski with minor differences. They slay powder, crud and chunky snow like no other ski I've owned. Stiff enough to blast through thick crud without getting tossed around, but the rocker allows them to turn with ease. The Amperage handles hard pack very well considering the width and doesn't flinch with speed. Much better than other wide skis I've owned. They also have rather thick edges, which adds weight but also a lot of durability. I've killed previous BD skis because the edges broke or pulled out. These have held up much better. They ski groomers well for their width, but not as well as a narrow ski with the same flex. The rocker also makes for a rather short edge contact on super hard groomers. A bit of a bear in the bumps due to the width and stiffness. The open bowls and trees are where they shine the most. They beg to ski fast and furious. Think: three turns to ski a 500ft vert bowl at Loveland!. However, all you have to do is lean a little forward and they will turn with ease and you can ski a 15ft wide chimney on Pikes Peak. I use them as a quiver of one, but a 105 width would probably serve that better. I have them set up with Fritschi Freerides and they are quite heavy if you put them on your pack or skin with them. But they are amazing when you ski down. Would love a light weight carbon version for the back country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Floaty, Fast Disclaimer: I'm skiing the Amperage, which is the Boundary 115 without the rubber in the tip. Coming from a Soul 7, there was a learning curve to this ski. It's much stiffer and more lively. The Boundary isn't as easy or automatic to ski, but rewards you for skiing fast and agressively. It will force you to become a better skier. In deep powder they are unsinkable and provide fantastic float. Towards the end of the day when the snow has formed piles and becomes heavy, these skis prefer to carry speed and skip over the top of obstacles instead of slash through them. The edges are beefy and the base material is very durable, shrugging off burried rocks without a scuff (so far). I have mounted my bindings (first Ions then Kingpins) 1.5 cm to the rear. This causes more tip flap, but also gives the ski more floatation, a welcome trade-off. I would buy these skis again in a heartbeat.
