Description

Built with a classic touring ski design that’s updated with modern construction and technology, the Black Diamond Link 90 ski is the plank of choice for long-distance tours, hut trips and other lightweight backcountry forays. The Link 90’s paulownia wood core and pre-preg fiberglass layup are optimized to trim ounces, which 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. We also added a Semi-Rocker tip to stay above the snow on the skin track and in the pow, and the stainless steel tail protector features a notch to secure your skin tail hardware.

  • 90-mm waist for technical performance
  • Semi-Rocker tip with traditional camber underfoot and a flat tail profile
  • 3D Sandwich construction with pre-preg fiberglass, stacked sidewalls and paulownia wood core
  • Sidewall Dampening System for reduced chatter in firm conditions
  • Stainless steel tail protector with skin notch
  • Optimal use: 50% soft snow / 50% hard snow

Link 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.

 
Link 90 Ski is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Nimble Mounted with 22 Design Outlaw tele binding, the skis are flexible, responsive and nimble. The retain the same features as the time honoured BD Aspect, with a new name and cover. Used the ski in the variable North East conditions (crusty snow, icy terrain, granular conditions, powder, wet and heavy spring conditions) and it performed / handled everything smoothly and with limited chatter. With the discount price offered by BD - can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for BD Aspects, skis excellent I bought these skis to replace my old Aspects ski. Link90 have the same dimensions as the new Carbon Aspects, just a tad heavier. Skis great in knee deep powder. Have not tried hard pack yet, but I expect it to do just fine. Great ski for touring/bc skiing! Light, but still can be driven hard!
