The Blizzard Black Pearl 98 returns with a brand new look. This widest member of the Black Pearl collection of skis for women is the perfect choice for the lady skier who is looking for an all day, every day ski that can really handle deeper snow well.
Compared to previous skis of this width for women, this ski's tip has been widened, and the widest point of the ski has been moved back, shortening the sidecut length. This new shape offers more surface area in the tip area for better performance in deeper snow, and the shorter, tighter sidecut arc makes the Black Pearl 98 an easier and quicker ski to turn. Its unique combination of width, rocker profile, and lady specific Flip Core technology, make it very, very difficult to have a bad day on this ski. If you are looking for the one ski quiver, perfect all mountain ski, most versatile, (we like to call it an All Day, Every Day ski), or whatever its label, this is the one!
The Black Pearl 98 includes Blizzard's lady specific Lite Core construction. Eco friendly, light weight Bamboo laminates are mixed with even lighter isocore material inside the ski. The result is a ski that weighs less, and has a lower swing weight, but is still very stable and super smooth. ABS sidewalls further enhance the performance of this ski by providing a suspension system for the edges, and also by increasing torsional (twisting) stiffness.
This BP98 also includes FlipCore, a Blizzard exclusive technology that is really quite simple in its concept. By turning the camber profiled, milled core upside down when the ski is assembled in the mold, the wood isocore stores more energy, and rebound from turn to turn is improved. Skis with laminate wood core construction are always very smooth, very stable, and offer outstanding edge hold on hard snow. But, the downside to them is that they are deader on the snow, with a bit less rebound from turn to turn. Flip Core breaks this paradox, allowing a laminate ski to be much livelier from turn to turn. Flip Core is truly unique, and you will love the personality it brings to your new skis.
And now Flip Core incorporates carbon fiber, making it even better. Blizzard's unique Carbon FlipCore adds layers of graphite at the tip and tail, replacing the heavier fiberglass used in previous models. The addition of carbon graphite component lessens the weight of the ski's rockered tip and tail sections, making it more stable at speed, and giving the ski a lighter, livelier feel on the snow. CARBON FLIPCORE MAKES A GOOD SKI WAY, WAY BETTER!
Yes, the new Black Pearl 98 skis even better in deeper snow, and yes it turns even better on the groomers. Your skiing just got easier, and the smile on your face got even bigger too, if you choose the Black Pearl 98 as your new skis.
