Technical info:
Metal reinforced freeride skis has become a trademark for Blizzard. Brahma has the highest specific weight in this test. A solid double aluminium construction, plus the carbon strings, makes this ski stiff. The flex curve is even and the ski has average stiffness, with a very low camber. All in all, Brahma has a harmonic geometry.

On snow:
Blizzard Brahma is the ski that is good at most things in this test: It performs well in short and big turns on groomed slopes and in chopped snow, as well as in moderate amounts of new snow. The ski is versatile and stable at speed and it performs very well in the turns, without it taking complete control. It is a well balanced ski that you will enjoy a lot.
