The 2020 Blizzard Brahma 82 skis are the perfect younger sibling to the ever-popular Brahma 88. For years, the Brahma 88 has been the benchmark of on-piste carving all-mountain skis, and the 82 is poised to make some big waves as well. Ski shape is trending a bit to the narrower side these days, and the Brahma 82 is one of those models that looks to dominate the front side while still having some chops to handle different terrain and snow conditions. It's a narrower version of the 88, and follows similar shape, profile, and construction. The shape is actually the biggest difference, with an 82 mm waist width, the ski is a lot quicker from edge to edge, and it also has fantastic edge grip due to the increased torsional stiffness. It acts more like an ice skate in this sense, and you'll be able to carve some pretty sweet turns all day long. By following the same rocker/camber/rocker profile of the wider versions, the skis have the ability to float a bit on the fresh snow, while still retaining the proper camber underfoot for edge grip and control. The tail rocker lets the skier release from the turn easier, as well as making the ski a bit more fun and playful than a flat tail. The addition of carbon into the ski makes it stiffer without being too heavy. For a while now, Blizzard has been using its Carbon Flipcore Technology for building skis, and it really succeeds at making quick, snappy, and stable skis that have a variety of uses. The 2020 Blizzard Brahma 82 is an ideal choice for skiers who are looking to up their all-mountain carving game.
