Powerful All-Mountain Ski
Brahma 88

Since its initial release in 2014, the Brahma has maintained a reputation for being one of the hardest riding skis on any side of the mountain.

Traditionally, this ski has had a very high learning curve, necessitating quite a bit of speed and precision to get it to perform optimally. That is, until last season where we saw the addition of a TrueBlend core.

This new build incorporates low-density wood stringers in key areas to provide a more forgiving ride that growing experts will appreciate.

While the requisite skill ceiling required to ride this all-mountain ski has definitely been lowered, it still works best for high level intermediate to advanced riders who spend most of their time on the front side.

A retooled core doesn’t only mean it’s an easier ski to ride, it’s also a bit more playful and versatile than previous versions of the Brahma. Blizzard has also begun to scale the dimensions and materials with the size of the ski, giving a more consistent ride regardless of your preferred length.
