Medium – ideal for all-mountain, off-trail versatility

Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis for versatile all-mountain

 

The new Blizzard Brahma gives you the stiffness of the Bonafide with the shape of the Bushwacker. The core is constructed of a wood core, titanal, and a layer of bamboo to add some snappiness to the ski. If you want a ski that is stable as can be in the longer, faster turns, and be very quick and lively edge to edge, the new Brahma will be perfect for you. At 88 mm in the waist the Brahma has the width to roll through crud, be highly versatile when you what to charge hard pack, and give you some flotation in light powder. The Flipcore 3D Rocker is unique to Blizzard skis only. They do not bend or break cores to form a rocker shape, they engineer it from the ground up, so every component that goes into their skis has its natural shape and flex to it, so you have a ski that has the power and responsiveness as a raging bull. Slight camber underfoot will help you stay locked in on powerful turns, while the rocker in the tip and tail, will help you enter and exit turns without even thinking. If you want a ski that can be stable in all conditions, especially at speed, but maintain all mountain versatility, the new Blizzard Brahma will not disappoint you.


Skill Range:    


  • Flipcore 3D Rocker
  • Vertical Sidewalls
  • Bamboo Layer

Great All-Around Skis!!
Comments:
I wanted to write a non-biased review to help those looking for the right ski for them. A lot of commercial reviews so you never know what to trust. Took the plunge and bought these with Marker Griffon bindings. LOVE these skis. I have used them on ice, crud and corn snow, groomed trails, 8" of powder and moguls thus far. I am an East Coast skier who makes at least one to two extended trips to Colorado. These will rip groomers and hold an edge like no tomorrow. My first run with these I was smiling and found myself wanting to charge harder and faster. They inspire that much confidence. I wanted a ski that was a little more front-side biased, but with a wider waist and could be taken off-piste in powder or bumps and trees sometime. I was worried the 88mm waist could be a tad wide for groomed and not hold a strong edge but was wrong. Even with some rocker there is enough camber to carve strong. This ski rips like a carver but still has some snap to it and feels lively yet stable. The faster you charge the more confident you feel. I also skied easy with my kids and played around and found the ski fun and lively too. This ski also will bust through crud and veer off trail and takes on powder and some bumps like a champ. I am 6'2" and weigh 170lbs. This ski is not too stiff at all. If you like the Bushwacker but want better edge hold, get the Brahma. I can't say anything negative about this ski. Obviously not a true powder ski so if looking for that you need something wider. A perfect one-ski for Eastern Skiers and a great 2nd ski for Western skiers when not in deep powder. Hope this helps!

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review
Comments:
Trey here with Blizzard's Brahma. I'm going to give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a pretty burly ski for 88 under foot, it's got a bunch of metal in it, so, it's really stable. Pretty quick under foot for how stable it is. I think if you ski the East coast or even the Midwest and you need a ski that's going to hold on to hard pack, yet still kind of break through those heavy, cruddy days, it'd be an excellent ski. If you're going to be in the bumps or the trees, I'd probably steer away from this ski. So, if you're a powerful, aggressive skier, or someone that just likes to ski fast, intermediate probably to the casual advanced skier, it'd be a fantastic ski.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review
Comments:
Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Brahma. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It has 2.5 sheets of titanium, it's an amazingly stable ski, but it was really too much, too stiff for me. I actually prefer its sister ski, the Bushwacker, which is the same waist, 88 under foot, but without the metal. I thought it was much more lively and quick, but if you're a big guy that likes to ski hard and fast and you want a ski with a lot of stiffness to it, that's very stable and very smooth transition edge to edge, this would be the ski for you.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review
Comments:
Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Blizzard Brahma. This thing is 5 out of 5. Super, super versatile frontside type ski. 88 underfoot means it's just going to just be lightening fast edge-to-edge. Tons and tons of edge hold. This thing's got two sheets of metal in it so it's damp. It's powerful. It's really precise. Just a really ripping frontside ski that's got enough rocker and width to dabble off-trail as well. Definitely geared toward your high-level intermediate through advanced rider. Bigger guy who's going to put power to the ski but it gives it right back to you. Really, really solid ride.

Comments:
Hey, it's Hunter here with the Blizzard Brahma. This is totally a 5 out of 5 star ski for me. And it's for the frontside charger who wants mostly hard snow, east cost focused ski, it's going to scare them a little. This thing has so much energy out of the turn and so much snap. Anything you put in it kicks back out. If you like a lot of feedback from your skis and want, kind of, a wild ride, frontside, mostly hard stuff, this is an awesome choice.

Comments:
I'm Kyle, just got off the (Blizzard) Brahma. I give this ski a 5 out of 5, I really liked it. It had really good rebound, it was really fun to carve down the hill, you could do really easy long turns and short turns. You could pretty much ski anything that's on the groomers, plus going off trail a little bit. It's really nice because it is a little bit fatter than most people might think, so it's a really fun ski. I give a 5 out of 5.

Comments:
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Blizzard Brahma. 5 out of 5 for this ski. It's definitely an on snow, or on the groomers crusher. 88 at the waist, so it's a little versatile for bumps or un-groomed snow. Little bit of rocker in the tip that helps it engage into a turn really easily, but it's also nice and stable on long turns. 5 out of 5.

Comments:
Hey, this Hans, I just came off the Blizzard Brahma. This ski is definitely a 5 out of 5. It's an expert ski, it's got 2.5 sheets of metal, so it takes a little bit of work, but even if you let it float, they actually ski really well. Definitely the ski for the expert skier, my favorite ski of Test Fest so far.

Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: It will depend ultimately on where you do most of your skiing. If you ski mostly cruddy/icy conditions (or mainly East coast), the Blizzard Brahma's at 88mm underfoot would make a more ideal all mountain ski. If you see more powder than crud (or ski mainl
