Blizzard Thunderbird R15 (Sport Carver 2023/2024)

Product Summary

The Blizzard Thunderbird R15's full retail price is €1,000. The Ski costs roughly €220 more than the average price of all Sport Carver Ski, making it a real premium Ski. This ski is just right for good skiers. Stable but not overpowering. This stiff-tailed ski is designed for perfect grip on-piste. It is best not to leave the groomed runs with this ski. The ski is available from 155 to 180cm. The skis handle like slalom race skis. Perfect edge hold and a small radius ranging from 11.50 m to 16 m make them the first choice for short turns.

The ski in details

Sitting on the longer radius side of the Thunderbird collection, the R15 is built for bigger, sweeping turns across firm, groomed terrain. For those who love to go fast while keeping every move under control, this is your dream ski.

Blizzard engineered this ultimate carving tool with our Trublend Piste Woodcore, which mixes poplar and beech for a stiffer profile underfoot and softer in the tip and tail. And to smooth out the ride—whether you’re dealing with ice or other variable snow—we’ve added a carbon plate (carbon armor) across the topsheet. It’s time to bring top performance to your mountain, and this R15 is ready to fly.

Technologies

  • 2Ti Duramax Sandwich Full Sidewall
  • Trueblend Piste Woodcore
  • Full Camber

 

ACTIVE ARMOR
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.

TRUEBLEND PISTE WOODCORE
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.

DURAMAX
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.
