Rustler 9 Ski
The growing Rustler series from Blizzard lets you rip on any terrain with confidence. The Rustler 9 all-mountain ski offers the narrowest waist in the family so that it can offer performance and control both on-piste and off. That 92mm waist combines with the rocker-camber-rocker profile, to create a set of sticks that provide powerful edging on firm pack and through crud and still offer enough float to ensure you can enjoy the fresh snow that starts falling.
Like the rest of the Rustler family, the Rustler 9 mixes a responsive and tight turn radius with their signature Carbon Flipcore DRT technology. This technology consists of a titanal plate underfoot and unidirectional carbon fiber in the tip and tail. By combining these two materials Blizzard is able to boosts torsional rigidity underfoot to enhance edge control and power at high speeds, while simultaneously enabling the tip and tail to flex torsionally which eases turn transition and adds forgiveness when you need it most. All of these features combine to offer a hard charging, super responsive ski that is versatile enough to be used as an every day ski in most parts of the world.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
