2016/2017 Scott Black Majic ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category.

“This ski suits a large diversity of skiers,” says Cole. “The soft, buttery rockered tip is easy to drive into the turn, but it lacks the edge hold at speed that other race-oriented Frontside skis have.” Testers gave tied high scores for the Black Majic in carving and playfulness categories, lower numbers for stability. As one of Scott’s All Conditions Skis, the Black Majic’s waist ranges between 75 and 80 mm, according to the length. It features Scott’s 3Dimension sidecut with unique tip and tail radii thanks to the sidecut design. The sandwich sidewall construction includes a wood core with two Titanal sheets layered on the top and bottom. “There’s not much rebound, but it’s good in a variety of snow conditions like soft bumps and crud,” says Rice.
