Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on Blizzard’s Cochise Skis 2017-2018, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
“Bomber.” “Wild like a mustang in the chunder.” “Blasts like a missile.” “Stiff and sturdy in any type of snow.” “Incredible on edge.” You get the idea? The always-popular Cochise returns with some upgrades in the form of new molds and materials. Inside of the ski you’ll find poplar wood for a balance of weight and spring, along with beech wood for rockin’ torsional strength. Two layers of titanium, sandwich sidewall construction and a flat tail further up the rail-ability factor. A rocker- camber-rocker profile and carbon inserts in the tip and tail help to eliminate chatter and add playfulness to the mix. Blizzard completed its most extensive prototyping process to date to bring about this year’s line of skis… skis built specifically for you: the committed freeskier.
