Our knowledgeable staff can answer any and all of your winter sports questions to help make sure you get the perfect set up! Side cut radius is 13.5 meters (159 cm). It is almost exactly the same construction, and has very similar sidecut geometry (shape), rocker profile, and the same turn radius. So, it feels the same turn feel on the snow as the BP88, BUT because of its narrower shape, it is a little bit more groomer friendly, and it is an extremely good value as well.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, narrower version is all about quicker turning and better performance on trail. Starting with the 88 version, the width of this BP 82 has been narrowed 6mm down the entire length of the ski. This new shape is easier and quicker to move from turn to turn, and also easier to turn the ski tighter when you need it to. Other than that change, this new BP 82 is identical to its slightly wider sibling in this Black Pearl group. 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). This Black Pearl 82 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 Black Pearl 82 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! And, the 2021 Black Pearl 82 even skis well in moderate amounts of deeper snow, BUT it turns even better on the groomers and in bumpy conditions than its wider sister.
For those areas where new snow and smooth groomers gets skied out quickly, this ski absolutely rocks it because it turns even tighter and easier in bumpy, trashy afternoon conditions. When your favorite runs are all bumped out, the Black Pearl 82 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 82 loves to carve it up on the corduroy too, with quite a high speed limit. With rocker at tip and tail, and Carbon Flip Core storing rebound energy, these babies are super fun edge to edge. Need new boots to go with your new skis?
