Technical info:
Rustler 10 is new this year. Its big brother is called 11+, and there is also a female version. This is an aluminum and fibreglass sandwich with fairly low specific weight. A lot of sidecut in the waist, less in the front. Even flex curve throughout and low, but pronounced camber. A lot of rocker, especially in the front ski.

On snow:
Playful, responsive and trustworthy - Rustler 10 has got all these qualities. As one of the test riders said: “This is like coming home”. It performs very well in big turns, both on and off the groomed trails. If we have to pick on something it would have to be that it is not among the most maneuverable, and that it lacks some of the stability we are used to from previous heavier Blizzard models. Rustler suits the experienced skier who loves high speed and wants a solid and trustworthy power horse that also performs well at lower speed. If you are into carving and straight-airs, this is the ski for you.
