The Black Pearl has won our women's Overall Ski of the Year on multiple occassions and is considered to be the best-selling ski in the world, the model every brand aspires to. It's an all condition ski that is truly happy anywhere on the mountain, from smooth pistes to tricky off-piste runs, care-free cruising to fast, technical turns. The Flipcore WSD construction is the key, producing perfect handling and balance, boosting confidence and encouraging skiers to keep pushing themselves.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type everywhere on the mountain, including lots of time on firm snow and pistes where its solid construction of wood core and carbon fibre, shines. In all the mixed conditions and tricky snow, the balance and impeccable handling make it the standout ski in the category. At 88mm underfoot isn't the choice for someone who dreams of maximum float on bottomless powder, but it is the right choice for proper all mountain skiers, who recognise that too much width can be a hinderance away from deep snow. It also makes a surprisingly good choice for skiers who stay mainly on piste and will happily trade all-out piste perfomance for maxium stability and comfort whatever the snow.Skier TypeThis is one of the areas that makes the Black Pearl 88 such a special ski over all the previous seasons. It feels so good to a vast range of skiers from intermediates who want more confidence, to stronger advanced skiers who are already skiing the whole mountain comfortably. This universal appeal is the sign of a great ski.OverviewShape88mm in the waist works for a variety of terrain. It makes the most of the construction so that it rips on hard snow and packed pistes, yet it has enough width and the tip and tail rocker to provide excellent stability in softer and mixed conditions. The turn radius of 15m (165cm) it's ideal for all terrain use, long enough to feel balanced without losing the ability to carve tighter turns when required.RockerBlizzard's Rocker/Camber/Rocker uses specifically designed rocker in the tip and tail with camber underfoot. The camber increases the carving character on groomed trails while the rocker at the extremities maintains floatation and ease of turning off the slopes.CoreLite Core is a wood core that is naturally strong but lightweight for maximum performance without added weight. A carbon layer adds stability keeping the overall weight less than similar models using metal sheets. The new TrueBlend W.S.D. design keeps it feeling powerful underfoot as well as smooth and controllable at the tip and tail.ConstructionSandwich Compound Sidewall uses the tried and tested traditional method for the best performance. This means layers to build the impressive core, with sidewalls to produce the grip and precision that a ski like this requires. The top sheet has a rounded finish to protect the surface of the ski from scratches.Key FeaturesTrueBlend W.S.D.TrueBlend W.S.D. (Women's Specific Design) uses an exclusive blend of woods to provide 3 areas of density, meaning Blizzard can control the flex precisely through the whole length of the ski. The result is the same natural and dynamic flex for all sizes. For the skier it means more relaxed handling, better balance and precise control. To achieve this complex wood core structure required new production and manufacturing techniques. Using different types of wood makes it possible to modify the characteristics of the ski right at the core. For example, a ski should be stiffer in the area under the binding and softer towards the ski tips. This is why Blizzard builds the wood core with very small pieces of wood that are glued lengthwise. In the area of the binding, layers of harder wood are incorporated and softer, lighter wood is used towards the tip and tail. This elaborate construction gives the core different areas of stiffness with precisely adjusted flex properties, which creates a more harmonious ride.Carbon Flipcore W.S.D.Built specifically for the women's models this method offers the perfect blend of light weight and high performance. A uni-directional carbon layer integrated into a light sandwich construction ensures lightness, stability, smooth flex and torsional rigidity for an all round versatile and confidence inspiring ride.eB tester’s comments: Ailsa (Fort William) This ski made me happy!

The latest Blizzard Zero G 95 takes everything good about the old model and builds on it to make what is possibly the most versatile touring and freeskiing model you will find. The Carbon Drive 3.0 has been tweaked to create slightly less rigidity in the tip and tail to improve control, without affecting stability or weight which was already at the lighter end of the scale for this width of ski. Downhill performance still comfortably matches or beats its competitors. Tip and tail rocker and a 95mm waist ensure all conditions are dealt with equally well. Carbon Reinforcement and a light paulownia wood core create a responsive, precise feel without being heavy.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type everything that you can climb up to, from flowing powder fields to steep, icy technical descents. 95mm in the waist is a good all-rounder, tip and tail rocker suits firm or soft snow and the Carbon Drive 3.0 Construction offers precision for firm conditions without over stiffening the ski. It really is at home all over the mountain.Skier TypeGood all condition skiers who demand the very best downhill performance from a lightweight model. This the ski that has been to the top of Lhotse in the Himalayas and skied an epic couloir back down. It’s not going to disappoint.OverviewShapeA directional shape with tip and tail rocker means predictable handling in any condition. 95mm in the waist is narrow enough to remain nimble and quick edge-to-edge and there’s plenty of width when you do find softer or deeper snow and want some width underfoot. The 22m radius (178cm) sounds long and does provide a super stable feel, helping the ski track cleanly whatever the snow condition, but thanks to tip and tail rocker the ski is super easy to manoeuvre too.RockerPro Tip and Tail Rocker ensures smooth turning with effortless initiation and hassle-free release whatever the conditions. The camber underfoot provides the grip and energy to deal with firmer conditions and more aggressive skiing.CoreAn ultra-lightweight paulownia woodcore helps keep the weight down without affecting the overall performance. Carbon Reinforcements and Carbon Drive 3.0 improves edge grip whilst keeping the ski light.ConstructionThe Carbon Drive 3.0 Construction uses a 3D uni-directional carbon fibre frame to keep weight to a minimum whilst providing good torsional stiffness.

The carbon frame’s 3D geometry guarantees optimal flex and torsional rigidity, with this new construction providing more forgiveness in the tip and tail.

The latest Blizzard Zero G 95 takes everything good about the old model and builds on it to make what is possibly the most versatile touring and freeskiing model you will find. The Carbon Drive 3.0 has been tweaked to create slightly less rigidity in the tip and tail to improve control, without affecting stability or weight which was already at the lighter end of the scale for this width of ski. Downhill performance still comfortably matches or beats its competitors. Tip and tail rocker and a 95mm waist ensure all conditions are dealt with equally well. Carbon Reinforcement and a light paulownia wood core create a responsive, precise feel without being heavy.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type everything that you can climb up to, from flowing powder fields to steep, icy technical descents. 95mm in the waist is a good all-rounder, tip and tail rocker suits firm or soft snow and the Carbon Drive 3.0 Construction offers precision for firm conditions without over stiffening the ski. It really is at home all over the mountain.Skier TypeGood all condition skiers who demand the very best downhill performance from a lightweight model. This the ski that has been to the top of Lhotse in the Himalayas and skied an epic couloir back down. It’s not going to disappoint.OverviewShapeA directional shape with tip and tail rocker means predictable handling in any condition. 95mm in the waist is narrow enough to remain nimble and quick edge-to-edge and there’s plenty of width when you do find softer or deeper snow and want some width underfoot. The 22m radius (178cm) sounds long and does provide a super stable feel, helping the ski track cleanly whatever the snow condition, but thanks to tip and tail rocker the ski is super easy to manoeuvre too.RockerPro Tip and Tail Rocker ensures smooth turning with effortless initiation and hassle-free release whatever the conditions.
