The 2019 Blizzard Firebird SL WC Skis are considered one of the top SL Skis available. This ski is the World Cup Race Department version, made specially in the race room at Mittersill. It has a very well-balanced flex. The sandwich construction with high-grade wood core and titanium inserts gives the Blizzard slalom skis their harmonious flex characteristics and transfers energy to the edge, while grip remains uncompromised - even in the tightest of turns. The waist and length of the Blizzard Firebird SL WC skis allow turns to be carved instantly while maximizing flexibility for ultra-fast edge switching. The Blizzard Firebird SL WC Ski is the perfect ski for World Cup, FIS, USSA, and Masters racers.
