Blizzard Thunderbird R18 LTD. (Sport Carver 2023/2024)

Product Summary

The Blizzard Thunderbird R18 LTD.'s full retail price is €1,200. The Ski costs roughly €420 more than the average price of all Sport Carver Ski, making it a real luxury Ski. Skilled skiers will enjoy both relaxed cruising and pushing the ski to its limit. This Sport Carver Ski definitely prefers groomers to powder runs. It is designed for perfect edge hold on-piste. Available lengths for the ski are ranging between 170 and 185cm. This ski is a real cruiser and loves long turns. With a radius from 55.77 ft to 63.98 ft (depending on the lengh of the ski) you shouldn't expect too much in short turns.

The ski in details

The Thunderbird collection was developed to modernize the carving category like never before. And among them all, the R18 offers the longest radius at 18 meters—focused on long, sweeping turns for those who absolutely love to go fast.

This ski can be trusted at high speeds without a worry. And it starts with Trueblend Piste Woodcore, which combines poplar and beech so underfoot, the ski is extremely stable, while a softer tip and tail provide forgiveness when you need it. What’s more: Carbon armor up top dampens the vibrations down low—axing the dreaded groomer chatter. Full gas without total control? Count you in.

Technologies

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

 

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.

ACTIVE CARBON ARMOR
Active Carbon 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 carbon fiber plate is brought outside of the ski body which allows it to flex freely.

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.
