Product Info

Ever wonder why the best hard snow skiers in the world are all on 65mm wide skis, while recreational on-piste skiers who want a performance ride that's not a race ski are pushed toward wider "all-mountain" selections? Blizzard asked the same question, and came up with an answer: the new Thunderbird series of narrow performance skis, of which the Blizzard Thunderbird R15 WB Skis + TPX 12 Bindings are the flagship option. The Thunderbird R15 WB features a race construction with two sheets of Titanal, a TrueBlend Piste core, and the Active Armore Carbon plate underfoot to drive every ounce of your intention to the ski's edge. All that produces the maximum amount of satisfaction, turn after turn. Sound like something you're interested in?

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip to Tail Camber2mm rocker

Core

TrueBlend WoodcoreTrueBlend construction has been adapted to the needs of the frontside carver giving you strength, edge grip and power underfoot with a smooth flex pattern that makes entry and exit in and out of the turn effortless.

Laminates

Active Carbon ArmorActive Carbon Armor provides both vibration damping and enhanced rebound and acceleration without effecting the progressive flex of the ski. Inspired by the Carbon Armor from the Firebird collection, the carbon fiber plate is brought outside of the ski body under the binding which allows it to flex freely.

Duramax ConstructionNew Titanal construction that is designed to provide both maximum durability and increased performance with a unique, high value look. The top titanal layer is extended to the very edge of the ski and placed directly under the top foil which is then milled back 3 mm, thus exposing it. The Titanal directly absorbs all impacts that occur along the top edge, reducing scratches and eliminating chipping.
