FS: 2014 Blossom Namaste's

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 








[IMG][IMG]


As some of you may know, I was the importer for this Italian factory & changed directions last season. This was the only Namaste that I imported to the continent. Have only skied them for a few mornings & they as 9/10 as it gets. Recently race tuned & hot boxed: they need more love than I am providing.
Salomon STH 16s also were new w this ski.

Best Offer.
Thankx,
Brian

+1 for the seller and Blossom skis in general.  Make him an offer!

 

I got iRip's Blossom OffShore a month ago and tried 'em out yesterday.  AWESOME!!!  Totally unfazed by anything you throw them down and very nimble, even in soft bumps.  Lot's of complements on the lift on the stunningly beautiful topsheets. Here's a few photos of their maiden voyage in the world they were built for:

 

Highline Ridge, Taos (12/27/14)

Sweet looking skis. I've never seen a Blossom ski before, but have heard great things about build quality. There would be some overlap with other skis I own unfortunately. Someone buy these so I don't.

^ just have to say Dan, that perspective nails the "This is why I ski" - good on ya.

With respect to OP, I'm sure noticing Blossom - and when its time - I'll focus on. I was first made aware of Blossom via BBarnes this season. Italian "road bike like" pride of manufacturing, purposeful and with "looks" that beat the predominant bland artwork of standard molds.

What's the BSL mount?  I'm interested as I've got the PM Gear Bro195m which was made by Blossom and are still one of my favorite skis I've owned.

This ski is mounted @ line for a 295mm shell. This particular ski is worlds apart from the SuperBro/AK/Fuelie Boss in that it's more of a softer snow & side country stick. This is very playful & rounder flex pattern with an early rise shovel. It's not a jib ski, yet can double as an all mtn jibber/ripper.

Whats your price point on these?

How would these fare as an east coast rider with the 97mm underfoot

I'd buy them, but I just can't do them justice. Those are some really nice skis.

Beautiful skis and really well constructed ... just like all the stuff from Blossom!  Wish they were 175cm ... or a 170cm Whiteout, for that matter!

I have still not skied em- too many toys!

Some mistiming stood between me and this fine pair of skis. I wish somebody snags them. I am set for next season, but anytime Blossom comes around I would be willing to give them a try - there is so much positive buzz about them. Pricing is fair for a ski of this quality.
