How are the Brahma's in the bumps?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm 6' 1", 200 lbs, 45 yo.  I ski weekends in Vermont, spending 40% of my time in the moguls.  Rest of time is spent ripping fast down east coast groomers.  Will the 180cm Brahma be too stiff or heavy for moguls?  I am also considering the Powertrack90 and the NRGy. Reviews of Bushwacker make me think it will be chattery at speed on eastcoast hardpack and ice. I also want the ski to be good for a yearly jaunt to Snowbird's trees and steeps.  Any and all thoughts are much appreciated.  I won't have opportunity to demo before leaving for Utah, and want to bring skis with me.

220 pounds and own a pair in 180cm also... I tried a pair of 186 and tought they were a lot of work in bumps but the 180 cm are really nice in bumps and Glades...

I own a pair of Brahma in 187. They're good in the bumps. Dawgcatching did a great video review of them so you can see how easily they pivot and flex in the bumps. They are a technical ski though and punish back seat driving.

Italian bumps are known for being easier to ski...:D

Blizzards Flipcore design lends itself to being one of the best shapes for skiing bumps. If you can ski bumps, you will like the Brahma.

I'm decent in the bumps for a 46 yo.  I can't decide between the  Powertrack 89 and the Brahma.  I'm going to be on them a long time. I know, tough times!

Again, thanks a lot for all the feedback..
