The Camox Birdie features a pretty simple core construction, with a poplar wood core, fiberglass laminate, and sintered base.
Shape / Rocker Profile
The Camox Birdie has a pretty long effective edge, with very little tip or tail taper. It also doesn’t have very deep rocker lines for a more forward-mounted ski, though it does have a twinned tail.
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the 168 cm Camox Birdie:
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5
Behind the Heel Piece: 9-8
Particularly for a twin-tipped ski with a fairly forward mount point (i.e., somewhat freestyle-oriented), the Camox Birdie is a pretty strong ski. That said, its flex pattern is pretty symmetrical, with tails that are not that much stiffer than the tips.
Compared to the 186 cm Camox, the 168 cm Camox Birdie’s flex pattern is very similar, with the shorter ski just being a touch softer at the ends.
The Camox Birdie’s sidecut radius is slightly on the longer end of the spectrum, with the 168 cm version’s stated sidecut radius sitting at 19 meters.
At about -5.3 cm from true center, the Camox Birdie’s recommended mount point is notably closer to center than most directional skis in its class, though it’s not as centered as a pure park ski.
