They say

A no compromise, precision instrument for high octane, powerful women riders. Edge transitions are quick and poppy while grip on icy slopes is next to none.

We say

The description from Blizzard perfectly describes the nature of this ski, it feels very much set up for strong skiers. The flex feels noticeably stiffer than many of the other skis we tested in this group, this seems to allow it to maintain very high levels of grip and it feels completely rock solid right up to race-like speeds. It works really well in all turn shapes, and will happily rip out trenches in all shapes and sizes! The downside to all this high performance is that it is a bit less forgiving to use at slower speeds, but overall, an awesome ski for strong skiers.

Tester Comments

Eilidh McCloud
One of the best piste skis I have ever been on! Felt like a race ski, stiff, but so playful
Natasha Edwards
Definitely not for everyone, well suited to expert level. I really enjoyed using it at high speeds
