Product Description

From Black Diamond:
"Designed to cover distances with a quick and efficient pace, the Cult is the lightest, most nimble ski in our line and has a devoted group of followers from rando racers to Sierra High Route aficionados. With an ultralight tapered design and low swing weight, the rando-race-inspired geometry makes uphill travel a breeze. The wood core with high torsional stiffness preserves a stable and damp ride that tames varied conditions and holds a hard edge."


- Ultralight tapered design for minimal swing weight.
- CNC-machined wood core.
- The lightest ski in BD's line is uncompromising for speed ascents and downhill performance.

"Black Diamond adds another level of diversity to its line this season with the Cult. A narrow ski for uphill efficiency, yet it maintains the stability and dampness we've come to expect from Black Diamond. Whether you're into long hut tours or competing in rando races, the Cult is the answer when weight is a top priority."

Backcountry Magazine:
"This is BD's lap machine; their lightest and narrowest ski that they suggest can double as a ran do-racer...'Great ski for hardpack and groomers...easy turn initiation.' ... this 'lively short-tuner' also tends to get bounced around in the crud. 'Is this a specialty ski?'... Still ...light and quick-turning even on ice, ...'tips chattered at speed.'"
