The Blizzard Viva X8 Skis + IQ-TCX12 Bindings runs like a greyhound on groomed corduroy and grips like a squirrel on Douglas Fir bark, if you get what I mean. Blizzard s already solid wood core construction with partial sidewalls behaves like a champ at higher speeds with the addition of a Titanal layer to quiet vibration, so you'll feel like Wonder Woman.
Rocker Camber Rocker – Ski profile with a rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases floatation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow in any case.
3 Matrix – The sidecut, camber and construction have been designed and adapted to function in perfect synergy during the turn. Sidecut geometry designed for ski deformation during turns. The 3D surface of the ski guarantees flexibility, optimal stability and reduced inertia.
Titanal Laminate – Aids stability and smoothness at speed and on chattery snow.
Sandwich Compound Sidewall – Improved transmission of skier's movements to edge. Constant pressure along the entire length of the ski for greater stability, control and maximum carving performance.
IQ-TCX12 Bindings Included
Bindings Do Not Come Mounted to Skis – Always have a certified binding technician mount and adjust your bindings.
Dura-Tec – Aluminum Tip Protectors / Topsheet 20% thicker than market standard with a textured surface to protect from scratches and knocks. / Shorter IQ track to limit edge impact damage. / Maximum radius on upper edge to prevent scratches and chipping. / New tail protector design is 75% stronger in impact test.
IQ System Binding Interface – The IQ system is the only true fusion of ski body and binding element. The natural performance and flex of the ski are not influenced by any mounting, drilling, screwing or gluing of separate interfaces, elements or the binding itself.
