The Blizzard Brahma is a go-to ski for aggressive chargers who will be spending the majority of their time on the frontside of the mountain carving medium radius turns, pounding through the bumps, or dipping off trail from time to time. A new shape and rocker profile for 2018 makes the Brahma a bit tighter turning than previous models. Blizzard's Carbon Flipcore Construction uses directional Carbon Fiber Inserts in the tip to eliminate tip wobble, and make turn initiation quicker. A Dual Titanium Layer and a Ti Binding Interface adds extra stability and power to the Brahma, making it a favorite for bigger, aggressive skiers. The 88mm waist is surprisingly edgy when you need it to be when you are carving, but provides ample support when you need to dip into some fresh snow. A Sandwich Compound Sidewall Construction transfers a high amount of energy to the snow and provides unmatched edge grip that Back East rippers love on firm days. Blizzard's combination of Poplar and Beechwood adds a damp and powerful feeling to the Brahma allowing you to test your comfort zone and speed limit.

Q: I'm deciding between the Brahma and the Brahma CA. I'm 250lbs, 6'2". I live in the Northeast and ski both here and Steamboat/Big Sky. Currently skiing on Rossignol Pursuit 800s 177, and find that they are great in hardpack, but impossible in powder, soft, or crud. Skied the regular Brahmas out west and loved them. Wondering if lighter CAs would be even better. Pretty aggressive skier, perfecting my bumps skiing, but need something with faster response in the bumps and trees.

A: Based on your weight I would recommend the Brahma Ti version for you. That ski should give you the versatility and stability you are looking for. The CA version is not stiff enough to give a skier your size and aggressiveness the ride you are looking for.

Q: What are the factory base and side edge bevels on the Brahma and the black pearl 88? I tend to do most of my tuning at home.
Asked : Mar 07, 2018
By : E, NYC
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The factory edges should be a 2 degree side edge and a 1 degree base edge for both skis.

Q: I'm 6'0 and 215 pounds. 2 questions- carbon version of Brahma or Ti? (NOte- I ski mostly New England on groomed and some mogul runs). And what length?

A: Purely basing my recommendation on your weight I would recommend the Ti version of the Brahma for you. If you are an aggressive skier I would steer you towards the 187cm, if you are not very aggressive I would steer you towards the 180cm.

Q: Heard great things about the Brahma and I'm looking to replace a 161 Volkl Bridge from 10 years ago. I'm 32, weigh 160 and love to get aggressive and can ski anything fast on the East coast -- trees, bumps, groomers. Try to get out west for powder for 4 days/yr. Is the 173 the right length?

Q: I'm a 5'9” - 180 pound 45 year old getting back into skiing after 20+ years. I'm a solid intermediate skier that enjoys going fast and looking to progress into an advanced intermediate. I enjoy skiing frontside/carve but looking to explore a little more frequently. Hoping this isn't a ski that i would out grow (levels). Wondering which ski length would you recommend for me?

A: Even the most aggressive skiers cannot outgrow the Brahma. Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 180cm for you.

Q: I'm a 25 yo 5'11" and 160 lb skier. I'm looking at the Brahmas but trying to decide on a length. Advanced-Expert skier ( I can ski pretty much every trail out here in the East). I've had a pair of skis for about 8 years that are only 165 cm. Wondering if the 180 would be too big of a jump up.

Q: East coast skier. Mostly groomers and icy conditions. I consider myself an advanced intermediate. 5'7 195lbs. What size Brahma's would you recommend for me? My brother, who is the same size and ability ( about 20lbs lighter) was told to get 163 when he bought new Volkl Kendos. That seems small to me. Any thoughts?

A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 180cm Brahma if you are an aggressive skier. If you are not very aggressive you can go down to the 173cm.

Q: Hello, I'm interested in this ski and would mainly use it on groomed trails. I'm 6' 6” and weigh 250lb. I would mainly spend 70% of my time on blues and the rest on blacks. I'm thinking a 187 for my height, weight and ski style, any thoughts? Also, what would be a good binding to match these with given my height, weight and ski style? Thanks!!

A: Based on your weight, ability and terrain choice I would recommend the 187cm for you. The Marker Jester, Salomon STH WTR 16 or Look Pivot 14 would all be good options for you. The Brahma makes a perfect big-guy ski.

Q: Hi! I'm an expert skier and former Elite ski racer who now just want to ski the mountain vs. the race gates. I weigh 195 lbs and am 5'10” tall. I'm a fall-liner who loves bumps & trees as well as corduroy and crud. I'm comfy on double blacks & expert-only steeps, too. So should I stick with 180's or drop down to 173's or lower?

A: Based on your weight, ability and aggressiveness I would recommend the 180cm for you. Dropping down to the 173cm would compromise stability.

Q: How will this ski react to a very heavy skier? I weigh in at 275lbs and need a ski that can stay with me. I am really more of a true intermediate skier, about 5'11. I was thinking about a pair of 160s. I ski all front side with an occasional foray into the crud and powder. Any thoughts how these will react for a conservative, front side skier??
Asked : Nov 04, 2017
By : Skid7, Denver, CO
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The Brahma is a perfect option for the heavy skier, even if you are not an expert. I will caution you from getting the 160cm. That will be too short to offer you stability and rebound. I would recommend the 180cm for you to have optimal control and stability. Having a ski that is too short for your weight will actually take control away from you by not providing you with the correct amount of rebound.
