For skiers who spend their days getting pitted in secret stashes, the award-winning Rustler 11 is the ultimate resort powder ski. It’s founded on two signature concepts, Carbon Flipcore D.R.T Technology and an innovative waist concept: the longer the ski, the wider the waist, which gives freeriders and freeride athletes more control and float, even on steep terrain. The smooth rocker-camber-rocker profile make it responsive and stable yet super playful in softer snow and on any type of terrain. Powder days are go-time with the Rustler 11, ready to charge when patrol drops the rope on a field of fresh or a band of straight shots through the trees.

The Rustler 11 is the unisex version of the Blizzard Sheeva 11. This ski has metal underfoot, and it tapers off before making its way all the way to the tip and tail. The metal makes for a stable platform underfoot, and helps with edge hold in the places where the soft snow may have been scraped away by previous skiers/riders. This is a ski that can be driven pretty hard; it'll take to being pushed a lot like the Blizzard Black Pearl does, it'll just stay on top of the snow rather than diving towards the bottom. It's ideal for skiing aggressively in soft snow. This would be my go-to ski if there were 3-4" of new snow out east, or if you were traveling to UT and only planning on taking one ski with you, this should be a fun one.
The Rustler 11 is the ski regularly putting FWT athletes on the podium. It has a strange balance between its weight and its stiffness that makes it able to "punch above its weight." It still has a good amount of tip and tail splay that lets it land switch, spin, and flip in the backcountry, but doesn't do quite as well as other options in the terrain park. The ski is more freeride and powder-oriented, carries speed well, and pivots in powder well.
This ski performs best off-piste in powder and soft snow. With the added stability from Blizzards Flipcore technology, its no wonder that its used by freeride professionals all over the world! Flotation, sending cliffs or cornices, and ripping hot laps on a pow day is where this ski shines.
This ski charges through powder while giving you the ability to control the ski while floating above the surface. It's great for any kind of skiing condition but thrives in the steeps and deep snow.
All round beast, nice amount of width underfoot for all types of terrain, defiantly a powder oriented ski but will good edge to edge control from the camber underfoot.
