Powerful All-Mountain Ski

See all pictures

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 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.
