Description

East or west. Frontside or backside.

For skiers who get around, Blizzard gives you the Brahma Ski, a mid-fat freeride machine that's ready for your all-mountain explorations. Designed with camber underfoot to excel on hardpack snow, the Brahma rocks the groomer-carving scene. Rocker at the tip and tail also lets you get off the trail and play in the soft stuff on the backside of the mountain. The multi-wood core offers supremely smooth flex for fluid and stable turning. An added metal sheet keeps vibrations to a minimum, because no matter where you go on the mountain, you're going there fast.

The Flipcore construction means that the ski is actually made upside-down in the mold so the downward-facing convex side forms the natural tip and tail rocker without having to bend or artificially shape the ski in a press. The result is incredible natural spring and lightweight floatation in powder while retaining the excellent stability and even pressure distribution that you need on the firmer stuff. A super-friendly 88mm waist pleases eastern and Rocky Mountain skiers alike, giving you enough width to get out and explore without being clunky when there hasn't been fresh stuff for a while. Sandwich sidewall construction puts the power on the edges for serious carving and those moments on steep faces when losing an edge isn't an option

Brahma 180cm Does it All!

Picked up the Brahma this year. Its my go to teaching ski at Deer Valley and do everything but, big pow days and big mountain lines. It can handle everything from bumps, general off trail skiing, and RAILS groomers which is where it really shines. At 180 cm, I did find it a bit sluggish at first but, once I got used to them skiing bumps and off trail was easy. The stiff ski blasts through any crud I saw on this early season day at Alta.

hi, i am a 6'2'', 210lbs, fairly agressive, expert east coast skier. I ski at a fairly small resort, mostly on piste (70%), some trees, bumps and off piste (30%). I can't decide between 180 and 187. My GS skis are 180, my heavily rockered skis are ~187... This ski is neither, not sure if I should go short or long. Thoughts?

Marc,

I'm 6'1" 178lbs and 43 years old. Expert level and the hills I ski on aren't exactly Whistler or Snowbird either and I would ONLY buy the 180cm for me.

I own a 180cm Kabookie, owned the 180cm Bonafide, love the 180cm Bushwacker and the Brahma, 177cm Latigo is on my hot list to replace an original Kendo this year. I find the metal Blizzard skis heavy enough so jumping up to the 187cm isn't even an option for me.

If your GS non rockered skis are 180cm then you will be fine going up to the 187cm at your size. If you play in a ton of tight moguls, prefer short quick slalom like turns over long radius turns, and truly want an overall lighter and more energetic ski then go 180. It is a fairly stout ski even at the 180 length.

More high speed stability, medium to long radius turns, more float for when it does snow, don't care about the added weight on your knees, rarely go into mogul fields and have always preferred longer skis then go 187cm.

Hope that helps,
SF

The essence of flipcore

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Here it is... for the first time ever. A ski that will outperform a high performance groomer specific ski, but give you the versatility to get off the groom and into the bumps and trees. Go rip up the groomers all morning and hit up high rustler after lunch? Bring it!
