What Blizzard says about the Hustle Series

“Some prefer late starts and long lift rides, and that will always be alright with us. But for all you skiers who are here to hustle—those of you who work late, rise early, climb hard, rip turns, and always pack a headlamp—there’s a new ski collection in town that honors your every move. We even named it after you: Hustle. You might think of the Hustle collection as a combination of Blizzard’s lightweight Zero Gs and ripping Rustlers. But when you hit the skin track—and definitely, when you drop in—you’ll find Hustle is unlike anything else in the world. Light on the uphill and incredibly stable on the downhill with our proven TrueBlend Free Woodcore and Carbon DRT support, Hustle makes no compromises at any point of your ski experience. Because you, dear skier, deserve gear that hustles as hard as you.

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Hustle 11:

Tips: 6-6.5
Shovels: 7-7.5
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-8.5
Tails: 8-6

This flex pattern is very similar to our pair of the narrower 180 cm Hustle 10, with the Hustle 11 being just a touch softer at the very ends of the ski.

Stay Tuned…

We’ve been spending time on both the Hustle 11 as well as the narrower Hustle 10. Stay tuned for updates on this ski, and let us know of any questions you might have.

  1. Hi, is it much more than converting the DRT titanal to carbon on the Rustler 11?
    Looks like it’s even heavier than the Rustler 11 we have past years.

  2. Also curious about the weight of the production models of these skis. Was interested to get them for touring until I saw the weights listed. Skialper listed even higher weights for their test pair of Hustle 11’s in 188cm: 2153 gr / 2125 gr. 2022 Rustler 11’s in 188 cm are 2186 gr according to Soothski. Not the big difference one might expect indeed.

  3. I weighed the pair of 192s that my shop brought in at 4.45kgs… much heavier than advertised. I would think there isnt much difference to the Rustlers? I was excited for this ski as a wider touring ski but not anymore…

  4. For reference I just got a pair of R11’s / 192 and they are 4.703kgs for the pair. I was also hoping to compliment these with H11’s (180 or 188) as a touring ski, but maybe not with these weights.

  5. Be warned: I bought a pair of 188s and they weigh 2150g each. 200g more than Blizzard claims on their website. Pretty egregious false claims for a ski advertised as a 50/50 backcountry ski. This is full on resort ski weight. Thanks to those above whose comments led me to put these skis on a scale before I mounted them.
