Technical info:
The Rustler series is new this year. It also has a little brother in Rustler 10. This ski has a relatively light construction, despite the aluminum that has been added to the waist. It has a lot more sidecut in the back ski than in the front (33mR). Rustler 11 has some camber at the waist and long rocker in the front ski. Kudos to Blizzard for making a big mountain ski that comes in five different lengths, so that most people may find a ski that suits them.

On snow:
Rustler 11 is a very good ski. Lean forward and chase ahead, or stand straight up and cruise – it performs well in both scenarios. It lies steady in the long turns. The sidecut radius is longer than average in this test, a feature that was certainly felt down the slope. Slightly more responsive and well balanced than for example Black Diamond. Blizzard delivers yet another freeride charger.
