Ask around in our ski department, and you'll find an interesting phenomenon - almost everyone has a pair of Blizzard Rustler 11's in their quiver. Why? There simply isn't another big mountain charger that does everything you ask of it - from snapping off precise turns on the super steep to railing quality turns at speed to straight lining the outrun at mach speed - as well. No changes in the ski this year except for the cheerful burnt orange topsheet, but none are needed. Get this ski and rip.
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 – Increased tip and tail rocker to ensure ideal flotation at all speeds. Camber underfoot to provide control on compact snow.
Shape Concept – Progressive wide body style with an aggressive radius. Early rise tail designed to be playful in softer snow.
Multi-Layer ISO Poplar Beech Balsa Paulownia Woodcore
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.
Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. – Blizzard's Dynamic Release Technology, shared by the Spur, Rustler and Sheeva series, utilizes a specially shaped Titanal component that is full width under the boot but tapers toward the tip and tail of the ski, to increase the ski's playfulness without the weight penalty and without sacrificing stability. Combined with unidirectional carbon fiber in the tip and tail, longitudinal stability is retained while torsional rigidity is lessened for a more playful and less hooky feel.
Uni-Directional Carbon Frame
Carbon Fiberglass Compound
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.
