Black Diamond Amp 2012 Ski Video Review By Some Bros in Switzerland

Black Diamond has a pretty hyped up ski coming out next season that looks fun.  It’s the Amp.  Spec’d at 185cm (142-115-124) 10 lb 2 oz, it looks like a super fun ride, but a little on the heavy side for touring.  FWIW my Megawatts are actually lighter.  But based on this video the Amps look super buttery and smooth.  Plenty slarvy.  They don’t show any groomer/hardpack riding, but with the sidecut, I’d imagine that they’d turn ok.  And with the weight they’re bringing, they’re likely quite stiff torsionally, which should translate into a fun pow ski that has the stiffness under the length of sidecut to provide a competent ride on harder snow conditions.  Check out the video review by some folks in Engelberg.
