Blizzard Brahma 2018 | SKI REVIEW

December 11th, 2017

 

The Blizzard Brahma is the ultimate weapon for advanced skiers who’re there at first lifts, charging on the groomers, but don’t want to be put off by the thought of variable conditions and snowy days. After all, you can’t have sunshine, perfect pistes and optimum snow all the time. Featuring some updates for 2018, the standout feature of the Blizzard Brahma is that it remains easy to handle despite its stiffness and solidity. This is mainly down to Blizzard’s secret weapon, Flipcore Technology, where the skis wood core is naturally moulded into the desired shape without having to be artificially bent or shaped in a press. The Brahma features Carbon Flipcore Technology, where two sheets of titanal sandwich the core and carbon fibre reinforcements are added to the tip and tail, culminating in Blizzard’s trademark solid charginess, but in a smoother, more manoeuvrable and less juddery package.

This year’s Brahma features an updated sidecut and rocker profile, which makes it that much more versatile and easier to ski in changeable conditions at high or low speeds. Get this ski if you love charging around resort but need to take it down a notch sometimes, for example, when you’re skiing with your kids. It’ll slice through crud, stay smooth and grippy on the hardpack and hold its own in deeper snow, however much you want to rail it.
