Overview:

Blizzard has brought the flip core technology from its freeride line to the front side with its top Viva model.

The 8.0 maintains the fun front side maneuverability of its predecessor while offering a nimble aspect that may have been missing.  Add to that, the fact that  its no longer a system ski which allows you to get the feedback that you’ve grown to love in the Blizzard Black Pearl.    Its hard to compare the  2012 Viva 8.1 to the 2013 Viva 8.0, because they’re nothing alike.   But I will say, the 8.0 took what I gave it and gave it back in grins.

Viva le' difference!!
