2022 Blizzard Rustler 9 Skis w/ Tyrolia Attack2 14 GW Bindings
Blizzard Rustler 9 Skis with Tyrolia Attack2 13 GW bindings
The Blizzard Rustler 9 skis with bindings remains one of the most versatile setups on the mountain today. Built with power, precision, quickness, and fun in mind, the Rustler 9 remains unchanged except for graphics for this year. As such, fans of the ski will get all the same benefits and a great new look. When bindings are added to the deal, it doesn't get much better than this. From steeps and trees to bumps and groomers, the Rustler 9 represents the best of what modern all-mountain and freeride skis has to offer. Built with a multi-layer wood core and a titanal laminate that runs the cambered length of the ski, the Rustler 9 has the best of all worlds when it comes to strength, power, and precision. The quickness and easy-turning ability comes from the carbon flipcore construction and the uni-directional carbon found in the tips and tails. This keeps the swing weight down so you can easily maneuver the skis if the conditions or terrain get tricky and technical. On the groomers, the waist width with metal underfoot holds tight to the hard pack and for a ski without full metal sheets, it carves and holds an edge surprisingly well. But the main part of this setup is the versatility. The Rustler 9 skis with bindings offer a tremendous amount of confidence and performance with a lighter weight than most of its contemporaries. Advanced skiers will love the value and power of the Blizzard Rustler 9 skis with bindings.

We offer free mounting if you include your boot sole length in millimeters. Please note that you are still required to get a final adjustment from a certified binding technician as we do not adjust DIN, toe height, or forward pressure. Have fun!
Been shopping skis a while and keep coming back to the R9's. Torn between the 172 and 180. I'm 54, 5'11, 185 and in good physical condition. Mt Hood, OR is home. Lots of crud and ice with the occasional fluff day mixed in. Can but don't like to go as hard as I used to. Skied mostly under 180 the last 10 years, but have owned 190s. Tried the Nordica Enforcer 186x100 in northern ID a few weeks ago. They took care me, but I was constantly holding them back. Conditions were less than ideal, icy groomers while we were there. I don't mind short to mid range manageable bursts of speed, but enjoy carving and playing around mostly. In my mind the 172s might have more of the sports car feel I think I'm looking for. Not sure if going with the 180s (bout 3" longer) will matter much. Fun and forgiving is what I'm looking for most.
Really like the Marker 13 ID's, but I've read good things about the TA 14's. Assume you could equip either with 95 breaks?
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
If you're leaning to the 172, I'm not going to talk you out of it--they'll certainly be more fun and easy to use, while still retaining good edge grip and energy. For bindings, they're both great, the Tyrolia's are a bit easier to step in and out of. 95 brake on that one and 100 brake on Griffon. Have fun!
There would be an extra charge--please call 877-812-6710 to discuss pricing options. The red will look sharp!

correct, we'll put the 95 brake on the Rustler 9
The Ranger 92 is a nice blend of the Rustler and the Kendo, with the waist width of the Rustler but the overall shape and character of the Kendo. It's less demanding than the Kendo as well, so you don't have to be on it all the time. Black Crows Serpo and Head Kore 93 should also be in the discussion if you like that low-90's shaping. I think the 170ish is proper for any of these skis.
