The Blizzard Brahma Skis are new for 2014, and they fill the need for a hard snow focused ski in the Free Mountain Line. With 2.5 sheets of metal, the Brahma is a stiffer, narrower Bonafide. Do you live on the East Coast and worry that the Bonafide will be a bit too wide? Live out West and want a dedicated groomer ski? The Blizzard Brahma Skis are for you!

USOutdoor.com (2014)
All jacked up on futuristic technology and a knack for slaying the most epic lines, the Blizzard Brahma Skis will not rest until the mountain is in shambles. Revamped for this season, the Brahma rocks a stiffer flex and a dominant combo of rocker and camber. Carving is their forte as this pair of planks lays down the most delicious tracks with impressive energy transmission and superb edge hold. Outfitted with Flipcore 3D Technology and a bamboo infused core, there isn’t anything these twin shred pickles can’t handle. The whole hill is at your disposal when you mount up with the Blizzard Brahma Skis.

Gearx (Fall 2013)

New for the 2014 season, the Brahma ski from Blizzard is a free ride ski specialized for hard snow. Generous camber and vertical sidewall help you carve on firm snow, while the subtle rocker makes for quick turn initiation, better float through choppy snow, and effortless pivoting so you can change your turn quickly in the trees. Stiffer and more narrow than the popular Bonafide, the Brahma is perfect for off-piste East Coast skiing or a dedicated resort skiing out West.


Specifications.

Sidecut: 125 / 88 / 110 mm

Construction: Sandwich Sidewall Titanium - Poplar-Bamboo-Paulownia-Wood, Double Titanium

Technology: Flip Core 3D, Sidewall

Camber: Tip&Tail Rocker

Turn Radius: 19m

For skiers who go both ways, both East and West, Blizzard gives you the Brahma Ski, a mid-fat all-mountain ski that gets around with the best of them. The Flipcore Natural rockered construction means that the ski is actually made upside- down in the mold so the downward-facing convex side forms the natural rocker, without having to bend or artificially shape the ski in a press. The result is incredible natural spring and lightweight floatation in powder, while retaining the excellent stability and even pressure distribution that you need on the firmer stuff. A super-friendly 88-millimeter waist and a wood core pleases both coasts, with stable and smooth motoring. Sandwich-sidewall construction puts the power on the edges for serious East-coast carving and techy billy-goating in the Rockies. A metal sheet keeps down the vibration, because no matter where you go you're going fast.

This is the skinniest of the fat Free Mountain series from Blizzard.


REI (2013)

Built for aggressive, all-mountain skiers who like a narrow, nimble waist, the Blizzard Brahma skis roam from groomers to pow with the agility of naturally rockered tips and tails.

Recommended skier and snowboarder weights are a general guideline. Additional factors can affect which size will best suit your needs. If you have questions regarding ski and snowboard sizing, please contact us at 1-800-426-4840.

Rocker technology is everywhere these days. The Blizzard Brahma is built with “Flip Core” technology, which creates a natural rocker in the skis. This process creates a feeling of smoothness and stability previously unknown on rocker skis. These skis are made for intermediate-to-advanced skiers looking to cruise the whole mountain. Titanium reinforcements provide fast response, and an 88mm waist gives you the versatility you need for changing conditions.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

Trey here with Blizzard's Brahma. I'm going to give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a pretty burly ski for 88 under foot, it's got a bunch of metal in it, so, it's really stable. Pretty quick under foot for how stable it is. I think if you ski the East coast or even the Midwest and you need a ski that's going to hold on to hard pack, yet still kind of break through those heavy, cruddy days, it'd be an excellent ski. If you're going to be in the bumps or the trees, I'd probably steer away from this ski. So, if you're a powerful, aggressive skier, or someone that just likes to ski fast, intermediate probably to the casual advanced skier, it'd be a fantastic ski.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Brahma. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It has 2.5 sheets of titanium, it's an amazingly stable ski, but it was really too much, too stiff for me. I actually prefer its sister ski, the Bushwacker, which is the same waist, 88 under foot, but without the metal. I thought it was much more lively and quick, but if you're a big guy that likes to ski hard and fast and you want a ski with a lot of stiffness to it, that's very stable and very smooth transition edge to edge, this would be the ski for you.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Blizzard Brahma. This thing is 5 out of 5. Super, super versatile frontside type ski. 88 underfoot means it's just going to just be lightening fast edge-to-edge. Tons and tons of edge hold. This thing's got two sheets of metal in it so it's damp. It's powerful. It's really precise. Just a really ripping frontside ski that's got enough rocker and width to dabble off-trail as well. Definitely geared toward your high-level intermediate through advanced rider. Bigger guy who's going to put power to the ski but it gives it right back to you. Really, really solid ride.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

Hey, it's Hunter here with the Blizzard Brahma. This is totally a 5 out of 5 star ski for me. And it's for the frontside charger who wants mostly hard snow, east cost focused ski, it's going to scare them a little. This thing has so much energy out of the turn and so much snap. Anything you put in it kicks back out. If you like a lot of feedback from your skis and want, kind of, a wild ride, frontside, mostly hard stuff, this is an awesome choice.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

I'm Kyle, just got off the (Blizzard) Brahma. I give this ski a 5 out of 5, I really liked it. It had really good rebound, it was really fun to carve down the hill, you could do really easy long turns and short turns. You could pretty much ski anything that's on the groomers, plus going off trail a little bit. It's really nice because it is a little bit fatter than most people might think, so it's a really fun ski. I give a 5 out of 5.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Blizzard Brahma. 5 out of 5 for this ski. It's definitely an on snow, or on the groomers crusher. 88 at the waist, so it's a little versatile for bumps or un-groomed snow. Little bit of rocker in the tip that helps it engage into a turn really easily, but it's also nice and stable on long turns. 5 out of 5.

2014 Blizzard Brahma Ski Review

Hey, this Hans, I just came off the Blizzard Brahma. This ski is definitely a 5 out of 5. It's an expert ski, it's got 2.5 sheets of metal, so it takes a little bit of work, but even if you let it float, they actually ski really well. Definitely the ski for the expert skier, my favorite ski of Test Fest so far.
