Details

Blizzard Rustler 9 Skis 2020

The Rustler 9 is an all-mountain freeride ski that loves everything the mountain can throw at it. It is founded on two signature concepts, Carbon Flipcore D.R.T Technology and an innovative waist concept: the longer the ski, the wider the waist which gives ambitious freeriders and all-mountain skiers more versatility and float, even on steep terrain. The smooth rocker-camber-rocker profile make it responsive and stable yet super playful in all snow conditions and on any type of terrain. The Rustler 9 is the one-ski quiver for the progressive all-mountain freeride skier.

What We Think....

All mountain dominance you can go anywhere and do anything on. The perfect mix of camber and rocker make this ski fun, stable and progressive in all conditions. The 94mm waist and rocker in the tip means it floats really well in powder and powers through crud on the piste like a hot knife through butter. Lots of pop in the tail to send you into the next turn or over that roller, to get that flying feeling. Even though the ski is stiffer tip to tail it’s still forgiving enough to allow you to release that turn in a hairy situation. Great all mountain ski for a good intermediate and up skier.

FEATURES & TECHNOLOGY

  • CONSTRUCTION: Sandwich Compound Sidewall (QQ)Dynamic Release Technology
  • CARBON FLIPCORE DRT : A revolutionary rockered ski production process that incorporates a specifically designed piece of titanal, which reduces the torsional strength of the tip and tail areas of the ski while adding stability and control underfoot. Carbon Flipcore D.R.T makes the ski less demanding and less aggressive in softer snow while maintaining power and stability under foot. Uni-directional Carbon Fiber in the tip and tail improves longitudinal stability of the rockered areas of the ski and reduces swing weight delivering a more fun and playful skiing experience.
  • LITE CORE: Wood cores that is naturally strong but lightweight are strategically constructed for maximum performance while reducing weight.
  • ROCKER CAMBER ROCKER: Specifically designed rocker in the tip and tail with camber underfoot increases the carving character on groomed trails while maintaining flotation off the slopes.

SIZING

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SKI LENGTH

Determining the right ski length is not as simple as plugging in your height and weight. Although these are great factors to provide a starting point, there are other factors such as snow conditions, preferred terrain, ski category, and personal preference that should also be taken into account.

The general rule is for your skis to measure somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. With expert level skiers often choosing skis slightly above their head.

Once you have determined your recommended ski size range, now you need to decide if you prefer a longer ski or a shorter ski. In general shorter skis will be easier to manoeuvre while longer skis will be more stable. Narrower carving skis with smaller turn radiuses and full camber can be skied shorter, while wider all mountain and freeski skis with more rocker can be skied longer. Rockered skis have a shorter contact length with the snow which makes it easier to pivot and steer, however we recommend sizing up skis with a lot of rocker in order to maintain stability.Below are several reasons to help you make this decision.

GO SHORTER, CLOSER TO YOUR CHIN IF:

  • You are a beginner-intermediate level skier
  • You prefer making shorter/quicker turns
  • You are looking for a carving ski

GO LONGER, CLOSER TO THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD IF:

  • You are an advanced-expert level skier
  • You like skiing fast and making longer turns
  • You mostly ski off trial
  • You are looking at a ski with a lot of rocker

Sizing Guides

Sizing Charts

To help you to work out sizings, we have devised the following size guide. It is generic and not specific to any particular brand so especially with clothing it is best to either call for our opinion or cross reference the manufacturers individual size guides. Please click one of the links to get to the relevant chart below:

Ski length, Snowboard length, Snowboard Bindings, Boot sizes, Clothing sizes, Glove sizes.

Ski length

We have devised a simple chart to assist you in selecting your correct ski length. If you require any further assistance, our staff will be only to happy to help.

Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-7.5 7.5-8.5 8.5-9.5 10-10.75 11-11.25 12.5-13.5 13.5+
Weight (kilos) 32-38 38-43 43-47 48-54 57-62 63-69 70-79 80-86 87+
Length (cm's) 125 135 145 155 160 165 170 170 175

Level 1/2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5/6 Level 7/8 Level 9/10
Skiing for the first time Able to ski green/blue runs Able to ski Blue/Red runs Able to ski all pisted runs in good conditions Able to ski all runs on/off piste in good conditions Able to ski anywhere on the mountain
-15cm -10cm -5cm 0 cm +5cm +10cm

1. Select your weight level.The ski length at the bottom of your weight column is your suggested starting length.

2. Now select your abilty level, the amount in cms at the bottom of your ability level is added to or subtracted from your starting length.

3. Add a further 5cm if you are spending 60% or more of your time off Piste.

4. By adding the above together you will have found your recommended ski length.

By adding your Ski length to your ability you will have found your recommended ski length. For example a person weighing 75kg, who is a level 7 skier will ski on length of 170 + 5cms = 175cms.

This ski length chart is a guide as not all skis end in 5 or 0 cms and therefore suggest you ski closest to the recommended length

Snowboard Length

Snowboard sizing is determined purely by weight. Ability determines flex - beginners should choose a board with a softer more forgiving flex, whilst more advanced riders would normally prefer a stiffer board.

Weight (kg) 32-37 38-43 44-50 51-56 57-63 64-69 70-75 76-82 83-88 89-94 95-101 102+
Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-8 8-9 9-10 10-11 11-12 12-13 13-14 14-15 15-16 16+
Minimum length 125 130 135 140 145 150 155 157 160 162 164 166
Maximum length 135 140 145 150 155 160 162 165 168 170 170 170
