Here are some pictures from our preview show/demo of the 2013 Blizzards.
The acclaimed men's Flipcore series return with some fresh graphics:
Gunsmoke Profile tip & tail:
The Gunsmoke is a new addition to the flip core series. It is a 140/114/130 23M TR twin tip that is positioned to be in the "Resort Powder" segment to of up against the Patron, S7, DPS 112 and such. WHile I didn't have the best conditions to ski the Gunsmoke in, it still carved some pretty good turns on the fresh manmade snow. I will hold the rest until I can perform a complete review on snow that is more applicable for the ski. I do have more pics in my phone of the profile and will add them soon.
The ladies pretty much get a complete revamping of their Blizzard for 2013. Starting with the fairer versions of the above Flip cores:
Left to Right: Dakota (108mm), Samba (98mm) and returning the Black Pearl (88mm)
The Dakota is a Cochise for the ladies and will be offered in 170 and 177 lengths. The Samba is a softened up Bonafide in a 159, 166, and 173 lengths. The Black Pearl returns unchanged with an upgraded graphic and will be offered down to a 152cm.
The Magnum series received a complete upgrade for 2013 with this series also transforming with flip core. While the lengths have stayed the same, the widths have changed too, there are now a 8.5 and two 8.0's, Ti and Ca models and the 8.0 Ca is the woman's Vivi 8.0. The Men's 7.6 and woman's 7.4 return with new graphics and a slight bit of rocker.
