Blizzard Samba 2013 vs 2014 vs 2015 model

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Aloha!

 

I tested Blizzard Samba 2013 yesterday and loved it! I am considering purchasing it but I wonder if I shoudl go for 2014 or 2015 models instead. The demo shop did not have the 2014 and 2015 models unfortunately so I could not try them to make sure they feel as wonderful as 2013 model. I cannot find any info online either.

 

Has anyone tried/compared the 2013/14/15 Blizzard Samba?

Each year model is was enhanced with N.G.T. (New Graphic Technology)..the upcoming 2016 version is the best yet! :drool

The 2013, 14 and 15 are all the same.  The 2016 is (as the manufacturer says) the same but the construction of a different top sheet gives it a little different feel.  I think its more nimble,. 

 

If your choices are 14 or 15, then go for it!

Trekchick, I'm really interested in how the 2016 samba compare with the 2016 bonafides - any chance that you have skied both? Sorry to threadjack, but thought it might be better to keep the samba info together.

I have not skied both, primarily because the 2016 Bonafide wasn't available to demo in my size.

I use the Salomon Sth2 13 on mine but I also like a few others, like the Tyrolia Attack 13, ....
