Girth without weight.

Black Diamond's Carbon Megawatt Ski is something of an anomaly in the world of touring-specific skis. Toting all the features of a big mountain powder ski, the Carbon Megawatt sports full ABS sidewalls, a 147mm shovel, and a girthy 120mm waist, but still weighs under eight pounds. This means you can log in huge vert on the deepest days, without compromising skiability.

The Megawatt has been the go-to powder ski within Black Diamond's line for quite a few seasons now, but never at this weight. Weighing a full 240 grams less than last year's carbon model, Black Diamond went with an ultralight engineered wood core to save on weight for this year's Megawatt. They also pulled the edges back from the tip to lighten them up a bit, and then used their Formula One 3D Light Sandwich pre-preg carbon construction to bring the weight down even further for true skin track competency. The SkinLock tail tab gives your climbing skin's tail attachment a non-slip home, while the rockered tip makes braking trail a whole lot easier, while also providing that smeary feel in the deep stuff. So, when the snow's as deep as the skin track is long look no further than the Carbon Megawatt.

  • Formula One 3D Light Sandwich pre-preg carbon construction

Here's what others have to say...

What's the recommended tour binding to use? I have the Fischer Vacuum Hybrid 12+ boots. (

Hey Tom,
I'm sure Black Diamond would recommend one of their Fritschi Diamir touring bindings for this ski. Just make sure you get the 120mm brake!
The Freeride Pro would be awesome:

Any frame AT binding would work with your boot. The Salomon Guardian or Atomic Tracker, Marker Duke/Baron/Tour, Tyrolia Adrenalin... Here's a link to some other compatible bindings!

How is the 2015 version different from the 2014?

Black Diamond redesigned the carbon construction so this year's model is even lighter!
