Blizzard Magnum 8.5 Ti Skis 2014

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.
Rocker Type
Tip and Tail Rocker - Slight tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot for a balance of soft snow performance and carving
Core
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 . . .
 
Laminates
Spaceframe 3D - A Titanal laminate layer with strategic cutouts to lessen swing weight while improving torsional transmission and reducing vibration
Sidewalls
ABS sidewalls
Base
Strong Graphite Base
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
