What Blizzard says about the Rustler 11

Skiing is always fun, but we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t a whole lot more fun when you need to pack your snorkel. The Rustler 11 lives for the days when the snow gods deliver, and is as eager to race your buddies to the rope drop as you are. At the heart of the redesigned Rustler 11 is a lightweight, energetic Freeride Trueblend woodcore and an all-new FluxForm metal layup technology. Trueblend and FluxForm are designed to work together to provide stability and strength underfoot, yet retain all of the float and playfulness you’ve come to love and expect in the tip and tail of a Rustler 11. For the deepest days of the year and every day in between, the Rustler 11 is ready to Press Send.

Flex Pattern

Tips: 7
Shovels: 7-8 
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5

Overall, the new Rustler 11 has a very similar flex pattern to the previous Rustler 11.

  1. I liked the previous color but at least now it’s not going to be confused with the Cochise 106. The two skis looked kind of a bit too similar for a couple years…

  2. eagerly awaiting the full review of these. The old version was such a good all conditions ski, hoping removing the hinge point will solve all my issues and make it into an awesome backcountry weapon.
