Advanced and expert skiers who spend most of their time railing inbounds but aren't afraid to mix it up in the crud and sidecountry can now benefit from Blizzard's revolutionary "Flipcore 3D" Technology without going to a wide platform ski. The Magnum 8.5 Ti kills it in pretty much all conditions, with superior edgehold on hard snow and a silky, damp ride. A slight rocker in both tip and tail helps this ski ride up and over choppy crud and "difficult" 3D snow, and a new, lighter Spaceframe Titanal layer keeps vibration to a minimum. For those who want to enjoy the benefits of Flipcore rocker technology without sacrificing edge-to-edge quickness or edge hold, the Magnum 8.5 Ti is the ideal choice.
Tip and Tail Rocker Slight tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot for a balance of soft snow performance and carving
Flipcore 3D Technology Unlike most other companies, who start with a cambered core and "bend" it in the mold to create a rockered ski, Blizzard starts with a rockered core and components in the first place - everything goes into the press in the same shape as it comes out. Sound like marketing BS? Sure, except for the fact the the Flipcore skis have received almost universal praise from experts in their short time on the market. Maybe Blizzard is onto something here . . .
