This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.

Details

  • The Blizzard Black Pearl skis excel off the beaten path, but they'll also lay down fast turns on groomed runs if given the chance
  • Women-specific skis feature a lightweight core and a flex pattern catered to hard-charging women
  • Wood core is constructed like a sandwich, layers upon layers of CNC-milled strips reinforce each other to create a lightweight, snappy ski with smooth and easy handling
  • Tip-and-tail rockered skis are constructed using a specialized technique called Flipcore that maximizes the natural flex of the ski materials
  • Instead of putting a ski together with standard camber and then pressing it into a rockered shape, Blizzard builds the skis into the finished shape before it is pressed
  • The standard shape of a cambered wood core is "flipped" upside down to naturally match the rockered shape of the finished skis
  • This results in equal and consistent pressure during construction and a noticeable difference how the skis perform
  • In brief, Flipcore rocker reduces the floppiness and chatter of skis on hard snow at high speeds and enhances the skis performance in soft snow
  • Slight camber underfoot assists with grip on hardpack
  • Fiberglass reinforcement laid in 4 separate directions increases snapiness and power underfoot
  • Sidewalls offer direct power transmission, resulting in quick side-to-side response
  • Requires bindings with wide brakes
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
