When a perfectly groomed canvas of corduroy is sprawled before you, Blizzard’s Thunderbird is the ski of choice. This all-new collection with a specifically designed TrueBlend Piste woodcore and Active Carbon Armor vibration damping system (in top models), will rip high speed carved turns with the versatility to do what you want, when you want. Blizzard has a long heritage of ski making, and our engineers put our skis to the test in the Austrian Alps that surround our factory. The advanced technology that is built into these skis shows up in the details—how quickly the ski transitions from turn to turn, how stable they feel when you race toward the bottom, how precise they respond to your every whim. They will carve or cruise and great days are guaranteed.
Active Armor is a vibration damping and rebound control system that is located under the binding. Inspired by the carbon armor from the Firebird collection, the plate is brought outside of the ski body which allows it to flex freely. In this way the ski turns out to be less demanding while still providing a very high level of performance.
PERFECT BALANCED FLEX
Two different types of wood specifically blended into one woodcore. The different density stringers are customized in quantity and length creating 3 different areas of density to precisely control the flex.
The Trueblend Piste Woodcore is designed with a harder flex zone in the center, that provides stability and edge grip, a medium flex zone in front of and behind the binding that provides control, and a soft flex zone in the tip and tail that provides easy turn initiation and release. Trueblend technology allows us to precisely control the flex throughout the whole length of the ski and in every size.
Active Carbon Armor is a vibration damping and rebound control system that is located under the binding. Inspired by the carbon armor from the Firebird collection, the carbon fiber plate is brought outside of the ski body which allows it to flex freely. In this way the ski turns out to be less demanding while still providing a very high level of performance.
INNOVATIVE AND VISIBLE TECHNOLOGY
Active Carbon Armor provides both vibration damping and enhanced rebound and acceleration without effecting the progressive flex of the ski.
New 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.
Great attention to details is what makes Thunderbird something special.
