FIREBIRD WRC + XCELL 14 DEMO

FIREBIRD WRC

BINDING: XCELL 14 DEMO

COD. 8A0029FA001
For skiers with an affinity for a long radius and high-speed turns, the WRC is the weapon of choice in the Blizzard Firebird lineup, built with enough power under the hood you’ll wish you had a seatbelt. The mullet of race skis, it combines a rock ‘n ’roll attitude with Austrian engineering to back it up, perfectly tuned for precision, stability and full throttle speed. The magic under the WRC’s hood are the carbon technologies— C-Spine and C-Armor—paired with a Double Titanal Sandwich Compound Sidewall construction, resulting in a responsive ski that knows you’re the one behind the wheel. This model comes fully loaded with Marker XCELL 14 bindings. Whether you’re crushing beer league or laying down big GS turns on your own time, the WRC is the high-performance machine you’ll want to drive. Racers, start your engines.

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 maneuver 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
