 Overview
 

The Blizzard Brahma got a nice upgrade this season with the addition on the Carbon Flip Core Construction. Carbon Flipcore has directional carbon fiber inserted into the rockered portions of the tip and tail for a lighter feel, even more stability, and easier maneuverability. Carbon Flipcore also makes the Brahma a tad more forgiving that it has been in the past, to allow a wider range of skiers to enjoy the ride. A Dual Ti Layer with a Ti Binding Interface still makes the Brahma impressively stable at high speeds, and makes this ski a favorite for bigger, stronger, more aggressive skiers to carve fast turns on the groomers, charge through the bumps, at hit some off piste terrain with as much speed as possible. If you like to go fast, love stability and want a ski that is engineered just for that the Blizzard Brahma is the ski for you.

Hi I'm Thom. I just got off the Blizzard Brahma. 5 out of 5 stars for this ski. They go ahead and update this with a carbon tip and tail that a lot of the other Blizzard skis got last year. It just takes a ski that was very powerful and very energetic, it adds more energy but it also manages to make this ski easier to ski, so it really opens up the sweet spot. Previously I wouldn't have put an intermediate on this but now this ski from an intermediate all the way to the expert level skier is a great choice. 88mm under foot really makes it geared towards on trail, but its wide enough that it handles light crud and powder pretty well. But for a ski that is just absolutely going to charge and take you all over the hill. This is it. 5 out of 5 stars.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the new Blizzard Brahma. This ski is unchanged from last year with the exception with the new carbon flip core tip, it takes a ski that was usually reserved for like the biggest, the baddest, the strongest most aggressive skiers and it actually breaks it down a little bit easier to ski for the masses. It's just a little bit lighter and a little bit easier to maneuver. 88 at the waist, you can really carve it. It skis fantastic in the bumps. Its actually one of my favorite skis to ski in the bumps, and it holds a good edge anywhere on the mountain. 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve. I just got off the Blizzard Brahma, I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. This is a burley ski. It's 88 at the waist, its got a sheet of titanium and they've added carbon this year, which is new on the ski to lighten it up. But it is a heavy ski, it's very strong, very stable and likes fast speeds. If I was a faster skier I probably would have given this ski a 5 out of 5; but since I don't ski super fast, and I'm not super big this is a big ski for me. I would definitely want this as a big mountain, out west style ski. Big wide open turns, super stable no chatter what so ever on it. It really is a skiers ski, and a great ski for someone who really likes to go fast and load their skis up.

Hi I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Brahma, I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. A very playful ski, really good for carving long turns, fast turns but also super playful in the bumps. It does really well in the crud. I really enjoyed this ski, its probably best suited for advanced to intermediate or more on the expert line but really very playful, very strong, good carving ski. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Q: Hi, also looking for advice. I'm 5'10 and 185. I ski all terrain and am intermediate/advanced. I do like to go fast, but also to chill out and cruise. Is this a good ski for me or do I need to push it all the time? I'm thinking I would try it at 173 but maybe 180 would be more fun. This year I'll ski Northeast US and also Vail CO.

Q: HELLO, I AM 5'4 168-170LB (ATHLETIC BUILT). I PREDOMINANTLY SKI THE EAST COAST. I AM A INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCE TYPE AGGRESSIVE SKIER. WHAT SIZE BRAHMA (2017) WOULD BE MORE APPROPRIATE FOR ME. 166CM OR 173CM. BASED ON HEIGHT I WAS TOLD 166CM BUT WEIGHT 173CM. THANK YOU!

A: Your weight and aggressivness are the most determining factors when it comes to selecting a size ski. A ski has no idea how tall you are, but when you stand on it, it knows how much you weigh and how aggressive you are pushing it. Based on your weight and ability the 173cm Brahma would be optimal for you.

Q: I am a 6'1", 250# high performance 50 yr old skiing mostly eastern groomers (& ice, of course!) looking for length recommendations. Probably the 187, I guess, but have been on slightly shorter for last couple years. Suggestion?
Asked : Oct 12, 2016
By : Slim, East Coast
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 187cm size for you. The Brahma does have a pretty fair amount of rocker in the tip that causes it to ski a little shorter than it actually measures. The edge hold and grip is superb on Back East ice.

Q: I am 5'9" 190lbs. I started sking 2 years ago, I like to go all over the mountain, mostly groomed but conditions can vary. I go down greens with my kids through double blacks and even through the woods. I currently have 171cm fisher motives and looking to graduate to a better ski. Would this work? what length do you recommend. Thank you
Asked : Oct 11, 2016
By : Chris, harleysville PA
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The Brahma is a pretty aggressive and demanding ski, but after two years and you are skiing double blacks you sound like you would be able to handle it. You may notice it to be a little fatiguing when skiing slowly with the kids. It carves great, skis fantastic in the bumps, and does well in the trees with light powder. Based on your weight the 180cm size would be optimal for you.

Q: I'm 6'3" and weigh in the low 180s. 59 years old and an advanced/expert ski although at this point I tend to avoid the steep mogul minefields. Will still ski fairly aggressively, mostly in CO, and am considering the Brahma. Hope to demo a pair this year, but question is the length. Normally would opt for the 187, but at this point in my skiing life am thinking the 180 may be the better option for increased maneuverability. Thoughts?
Asked : Sep 12, 2016
By : Sema, Iowa
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Based on your weight, which is the most determining factor when selecting length the 180cm would be the appropriate size. The Brahma sounds like a perfect option for you, if you primarily stay on the groomers, and like to get aggressive.
