Side cut radius is 13 meters (159 cm). With its pedigree as one of very best All Day, Every Day ladies' skis available on the market, and a perennial magazine test favorite, Blizzard set out to raise the bar even higher. This new version is all about quicker turning and better flotation in deeper snow. The ski's tip has been widened, but the rocker profile and waist width, tail width remain the same.
This new shape offers more a bit moresurface area in the tip area for better performance in deeper snow, without affecting the tight sidecut arc that makes the Black Pearl 88 so easy, and quick 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! But now, this newest version of the Black Pearl 88 is all about more control, and a smoother feel, thanks to the all new TrueBlend Wood core. Handcrafted in Mittersill Austria, Blizzard's ski building gurus have designed a new core construction that places higher density, stiffer wood laminations in the center of the ski, for superior stability, power and edge grip.
Then, moving to the ends of the ski, progressively softer, and less dense wood laminations are used, resulting in super easy turn initiation and release from edge to edge. The overall feel is very, very smooth and amazingly easy to ski on. So, this newest Black Pearl 88 skis even better in deeper snow, and yes it turns even better on the groomers. But, for those areas where new snow and smooth groomer gets skied out quickly, this ski absolutely rocks it because it turns even tighter, and easier in bumps and trashy afternoon conditions.
When your favorite runs are all bumped out, the Black Pearl 88 is the killer ride, and it doesn't even mind much when it gets a bit slick. For most of us, groomers are the majority of our ski days, and the Black Pearl 88 loves to carve it up on the corduroy too, with quite a high speed limit. With rocker at tip and tail, and TrueBlend Wood Core storing rebound energy, these babies are super fun edge to edge. We have this ski matched up the new Tyrolia AM12 binding.This model from Tyrolia has everything a performance lady skier wants in a binding at a great price. High performance toe and heel comes from Tyrolia's classic race inspired components. This binding is compatible with standard Alpine boot soles, but also with the newer Grip Walk boots that are available as well. Tyrolia Lite Diagonal TRP Toe - can release in any direction from horizontal to vertical. Offers very good protection in combined twisting falls. Light in weight, with a good firm link between boot toe and ski. Four roller bearings built into the very wide wings in contact with the boot toe minimize friction as the boot toe moves laterally to filter out vibrations, and also provide a low friction interface when the boot needs to release from the system. You probably do not own a Grip Walk boot now, but your next boots are likely to be equpped with that new sole shape.
Anti-Friction Device (AFD) provides consistent lateral release with a DIN boot sole. This AFD under the boot toe is super durable, and offers outstanding contact between the boot sole and ski, even as the boot is moving side to side to absorb high energy shocks. There is no Teflon piece under the boot toe to wear out, or get compromised with dirt, degrading the ability of the binding to release the boot. Diagonal releasing heel is a proprietary Tyrolia feature.
Like other binding designs, this heel can release straight up. But, unlike every other heel on the market, it can also release in a 45 degree diagonal direction as the boot moves vertically when it is releasing from the ski. If for some reason, in a forward fall combined with twisting force, the Diagonal heel can relieve this twisting force if the toe cannot (such as when one ski is trapped under another, or under an obstacle). Nothing is more frustrating than having a difficult time getting back into bindings after a yard sole on steep terrain.
This heel design is proven to be super durable, and suepr easy to get into (and out of). There is simply no easier binding to use, and it performs great as well. This binding has a DIN range of 3 to 1 2.And will work for any skier with a DIN setting of 4 or higher. This is the choice for any good adult skier. We will premount the bindings to your boot sole length, hand tune the tips and tails, and wax the bases. Once you receive your new skis simply take them to a certified technician to have the bindings final adjusted to your exact boot, and have the DIN release setting adjusted to your personal specs.
