Blizzard Brahma 88 Skis with Bindings

The Blizzard Brahma 88 Ski with Bindings blurs the line between freeride and frontside performance. Don't get bogged down bringing piste specific skis to the mountain every day, because the Brahma 88 can give you the precise on-trail feel that you crave, in a design envelope that can ski with poise everywhere. In combination with a binding mounted directly to the ski, this might be Blizzard's most interesting offering due to its exactness on-trail, while retaining the ability to get adventurous. For 2022, the Brahma 88 gets a tweak to the flex profile. This is thanks to the new TrueBlend wood core which implements variable density vertical wood stringers laminated into a cohesive core. This new technology allows Blizzard to precisely dial in the flex of the core throughout the length of the ski, down to the millimeter. The denser wood is utilized where greater stability is required underfoot, while lighter wood is used in the tips and tails to offer the skier easier turn initiation and slash-ability. The result is a ski that feels locked in on groomers and ultra maneuverable through tight bump lines and steep chutes. Modest rocker in the tips keeps the skis predictable through crud, all while allowing the skier to feather different turn shapes depending on where the turn is initiated along the forebody of the ski. As always, two sheets of titanal keep the suspension rock solid. Skiers with "front of the boot" form will be able to get the most out of the stiff flex profile of the Brahma 88. So why not? Toe the line. Piste machine in the morning, out of bounds in the afternoon. One ski to rule them all.

do you mount the bindings?

Hi Steve!
If you include a boot sole length with your order, we'll mount them up! Please note that you are still responsible for a final binding check by a certified binding technician as we do not adjust DIN or forward pressure. Have fun!

Hi,

I am intermed-skier, 180 cm height and normally weigh around 82 kg.
I'm drawn between Blizzard Brahma 88 (171 or 177) and Head Kore 87 (171or 180).
If Price wasn't the issue, which one would you think would be better to get?

Question by: Pouria on Nov 22, 2021, 11:22 AM
Hello Pouria-

At your suggested height, weight and skiing ability, we would recommend the Head Kore 87 in a 171cm length. Both skis are fine choices, but the Head is more approachable and forgiving than the Blizzard which is a stiff, powerful ski that will ski you if you are not on your "A" game. The Head wont punish you for your mistakes, and will ski very well at slow, medium or fast speeds with a variety of turn shapes. Definitely more suited for an intermediate skier as well, but plenty of room to progress with this ski as your skills and aggressiveness grows.

Hope this helps and think snow!

I have not bought skis in 15 years, my old skis are Head C140 with Tyrolia S10 bindings. Have not skied much in last 4 years (20 days?) and just want to get back into skiing. I just skied them in Whistler for 4 days and did not have much fun (it was very icy) and slid around a lot. My binding were too old to adjust at shop when I had my skis tuned, so think best to get new skis/bindings. I rented Blizzard Brahma 88’s in Park City for 7 days (can’t remember binding) - they were 177 length 2 weeks ago. I felt I could carve turns on any surface and loved them, got them on Day 2 when I exchanged skis that were slipping around I felt. I mostly avoid moguls unless get caught and am an intermediate skier who is comfortable on all Blue’s and most single diamond runs. Your site recommends Tyrolia Attack2 14 GW with Brahma 88 - interested if think a good choice for me. I had great fun for a week in Park City and Deer Valley on the Brahma 88 and loved carving turns.

HI John!
The pairing is great--safe, reliable, and high-performance. We love the solid feel of the Brahma for sure--total confidence!
