Blizzard’s narrowest freeride ski offers more playfulness and forgiveness than the Brahma, making it more approachable for intermediate/advanced skiers and newschool-oriented types who spend equal time in the air as on edge. With a mix of paulownia, balsa, poplar, and beech in the core, plus a Titanal mounting plate and carbon inserts at both ends to keep things lively, the Rustler unapologetically wants to have fun without a massive price tag. 

Strength: Playfulness 

Weakness: Hard-Snow Integrity
