FLIPCORE IS A REVOLUTIONARY ROCKER TECHNOLOGY. THE ADVANTAGES OF THE NEW STRUCTURE ARE: NATURAL FLEX, INCREDIBLE FLOATATION IN POWDER SNOW AND EXCELLENT STABILITY. THE NATURAL ROCKER SHAPE IS PRODUCED WITHOUT HAVING TO BEND OR ARTIFICIALLY SHAPE THE SKI IN A PRESS. THE END RESULT IS AN INNOVATIVE ROCKER THAT OPENS UP A NEW LEVEL OF STABILITY TOGETHER WITH EVEN PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION ON THE SKI.
Rockered in Tip & Tail area with traditional camber construction Shorter edge length for perfect agility and playful performance!
IN 2009, ARNE BACKSTROM, SKI ALPINIST AND OVERALL FREERIDE SKIING PHENOMENON, APPROACHED THE BLIZZARD DEVELOPMENT TEAM WITH AN INSPIRATION FOR A NEW WAY TO DESIGN AND BUILD A ROCKERED SKI. A gifted athlete with an equal talent for envisioning how engineering and technology can improve product function, Arne knew that while rockered skis ripped in deep, powdery snow, they failed to perform in all other conditions. His insights led to the development of Flipcore technology, which revolutionized how rockered skis were built. Thanks to Arne’s vision, Blizzard was able to introduce what is now the most popular, best-selling family of freeride skis in the world. Tragically, Arne’s life was cut short by a skiing accident in the remote Cordillera Blanca region of Peru in 2010. For 2017/18, we are proud to relaunch Arne’s signature ski in its original and unaltered state.
