The Blizzard Black Pearl 78 is slimmest member of this family of skis for women. Its width makes it the perfect choice for the lady skier who is looking for an all day, every day ski that is designed to ski on groomed runs. It has the same sidecut shape, and rocker profile of the wider Black Pearl models, and most importantly, it also has exactly the same construction. This is one of those rare skis, that is constructed exactly the same as a wider model that costs hundreds more.
This latest version of the BP 78m when compared to the ski this replaces, has been widened at the tip, 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 bumpy, choppy conditions, and the shorter, tighter sidecut arc makes the Black Pearl 78 easier and quicker ski to turn. Its unique combination of width, rocker profile, and lady specific Flip Core technology, make it very, very easy to ski on, and yet capable of skiing aggressively when asked to. This ski simply has a very wide range of performance possibilities.
The Black Pearl 78 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 BP78 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 core 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 Black Pearl 78 skis really, really well on groomers, and it also skis very well at the end of the day, when conditions are no longer very smooth. Your skiing just got easier, and the smile on your face got even bigger too, if you choose the Black Pearl 78 as your new skis.
