We say

The new Cochise uses Blizzard's flip core technology which takes the normal construction of the ski and flips it upside down to give the ski a natural rocker. This ski was a definite step up from other skis in this category, it was an outstanding performer. The backcountry conditions we tested on were quite tricky to handle, however the Cochise cruised through it with ease. The main feature which seemed to help was it’s perfect flex pattern. It was supremely smooth and forgiving to use, without feeling light and flappy. Essentially this is a heavy duty, quality ski, which is also incredibly easy to use and adjust turn shape, in any conditions.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Amazing ski, has a beautiful, sensitive feel through the arc.
Pete Davison
A great combination of flex and rocker. Rock solid on the edge on the piste, but also perfect for deep snow
