A big boy ski for every day, at 125mm, the Nocta is the widest ski in the Black Crows range. Designed for powder days the Nocta is fairly stiff ski that handles everything from thigh high pow to rock hard pistes. 


The progressive rockers, tip and tail, give amazingly stable float and maneuverability in deep snow. The classic camber underfoot in conjunction with an 18m radius makes a ski that is agile, powerful and stable anywhere on the mountain.

The emblematic black crows model Nocta has been carried over in all but looks for the 2015 season. Developed by Julien Regnier, a pioneer in reverse camber technology, the Nocta has made its mark in the freeride world due to its international notoriety. This is best illustrated by the winning of numerous prizes and awards obtained on diverse continents for its ski ability. Combing a generous side-cut with a dynamic flex gives it great handling an all circumstances. Designed for powder skiing, it can still hold its edge on hard snow due to an 18 metre turn radius. Both a powder gun and a multipurpose ski, the Nocta is a ski of the future. Thanks to the double beak bi-directional technology, the Nocta is extremely maneuverable and powerful. This performance is due to a long and progressive front rocker allowing it to be very highly efficient in deep snow, a true classic camber in the centre and a more moderate tail rocker which gives it excellent stability at high speed. Light and well balanced, centre mounted, this master of backcountry freestyle is also the perfect weapon for big jumps and switch drop-ins. 2 sizes: The 188 a perfect powder day size. The characteristics of the double rocker mean that the ski length is increased, a 188 therefore corresponding to traditional ski sizes of between 1785 and 180cm. The 178 size preferred by lighter weight riders and ladies, this ski corresponds with traditional ski lengths of between 165 and 170cm. 


"Absolute banger! The Nocta is probably the most fun I've had on a ski of this width. Not soft and noodly, something centre mounted with a big of a charge. Rips untracked pow, boshes crud and not too shabby when you have to ski the piste home. I could handle this for a ski for every day, knowing the fun I'd have when that dump finally comes!" -Peter
