They say

The new Blizzard Rustler 10 makes a great ski for any skier looking for versatility and power in one lightweight package.

We say

The new Rustler gives out a really smooth ride that works well in all conditions. It’s particularly in chopped up variable snow where they float up easily and feel forgiving to use through the turn. It’s an easy ski to use in backcountry conditions, feeling light and user friendly in any situation. Compared to previous Blizzard freeride models we’ve tested, the new constructions feel generally much lighter and easier to handle for a wider range of skiers. However, they can feel less powerful and secure on harder snow conditions when going for high speeds and big edge angles.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Sluggish on firm snow, better off piste than on
Al Morgan
A smooth ski, great for those who have done a little off piste and would like to do more
