They say

This has been our most extensive and successful prototype process in Blizzard's 70 year history. Carbon Flipcore construction gives something that is hard to find these days-a playful and forgiving ski that still allows to shred with confidence

We say

The Rustler has an exceptionally light construction for a freeride ski, this allows it to be effortless to pivot and make quick changes of direction. It’s definitely a ski that immediately feels very easy to use and will give any skier immediate confidence when venturing into backcountry conditions. On hardpack and piste the Rustler gives surprising levels of grip for such a lightweight ski, feeling smooth and solid through the arc. Ultimately this is a very easy ski to use, which works well in all conditions, however in high speed big arcs it doesn’t have the drive and connection of some of its heavier rivals

Tester Comments

James Allen
Light, easy to use for all levels of skier. Light tip gives easy swingweight
John Taylor
Easy to use, but doesn’t reward when skied harder. Soft flexing tip gives a smooth ride.
