Blizzard Black Pearl 88 (2020)
The Black Pearl 88 has become a staple in the ski world and for good reason! This 88mm waisted ski is super versatile and caters to a broad range of skiers. It's hard to find a ski that can handle a fairly aggresive style, yet manages to act forgiving when warranted. This ski hits that nail on the head! The Carbon Flipcore W.S.D. is a special carbon fibre construction that makes the ski feel incredibly damp and stable without adding too much ridgidity. The race inspired tip design along with a mid radius sidecut gives the ski a great feel when carving on trail. The tip and tail rocker makes turn initiation easy and also keeps the ski from feeling catchy when skiing off trail or in soft snow. This ski is happy to let you ski your own way; it will quite literally make you a better skier!
Gnomes Comments: It's not just a coincidence that this is the best selling women's ski in the world, it really is that good!

Carbon Flipcore W.S.D
Uni-directional carbon layer integrated into a light sandwich construction to ensure lightness, stability, smooth ex and torsional rigidity.
Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Technology specifically studied to meet the particular needs of modern freeride and all mountain skiers. Reduced weight thanks to the bamboo and ISOcore cores.
Sandwich Compound Sidewall, Carbon Flipcore W.S.D
Full sidewalls guarantee energy transmission, stability and control and provide torsional rigidity enhancing the performance of the ski. Sidewall provides constant pressure along the full length of the ski.

A traditional wide frontside sidecut with a carving bias radius (14-15m @166cm). Forward mounting position results in easier turn initiation.
Duratec is the use of a thicker textured surface combined with maximum edge radius and aluminum tip protectors to contribute to the durabilty and longevity of your skis.
