The Blizzard Black Pearl 98 Skis give all-mountain skiers who love the precise versatility and user-friendly personality of the Black Pearl series a wider, more powder oriented platform. The 98mm platform is a great choice for experienced women skiers who gravitate toward the soft stuff when it's available but need good edgehold and stability on the groomed as well.
Rocker Camber Rocker – Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Rocker Concept – Specifically designed to provide forgiveness for frontside skiing and flotation off piste.
W.S.D. Shape Concept – Traditional wide frontside sidecut with effortless radius. Forward mounting position for easy turn initiation.
W.S.D. Light Poplar Beech Woodcore
W.S.D. Carbon Flipcore Technology – A revolutionary rockered ski production process that incorporates a uni-directional carbon frame onto the core of the ski that results in great performance with a light and easy feel.
Uni-Directional Carbon Frame
Multi-Directional Light Fiberglass Reinforced with Carbon
Binding Reinforcement Layer
Sandwich Compound Sidewall – All Blizzard skis with the exception of some junior skis are built with ABS or Phenol sidewalls for superior performance (stability, power transmission, handling) and durability.
Sintered Graphite Base
Dura-Tec – Improved durability through the use of thicker TPU foils on the topsheet edges.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
