Blizzard Black Pearl 88 (2022)
DescriptionThis is a pre-order product. ETA late May 2021
To put it simply, the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 does everything well. Whether you're in the mood to arc turns on-trail, weave your way through glades, or put a few powder turns down your favorite bowl, these skis are always up to the challenge. Blizzard's revolutionary TrueBlend Flipcore changes what's possible in the skis core. By running different types of wood strongers both lengthwise and widthwise, they have tuned each zone in the ski to flex stiffer or softer based on specific performance needs. This is topped off with Carbon Flipcore W.S.D, a women's specific laminate that gives the ski strength and dampening without extra weight or stiffening the ski too much. The rocker profile in the tip has been toned down and the radius has been shortened for a more responsive feel on firm snow without detracting from the playful side that makes them so fun for freeriding. All mountain skiers who just want to go out and have some fun will love the Black Pearl 88.

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.
New TrueBlend Flipcore utilizes different wood stringers in certain zones of the ski allowing the flex to be precisely tuned stiffer or softer for the best result in any conditions.
Sandwich Compound Sidewall
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.
