Here is what Blizzard has to say about the Rustler 10:
“The new Rustler 10 with Carbon Flipcore D.R.T is the ski of choice for those looking to have fun while pushing themselves to ski better and explore all corners of the hill in any snow conditions. D.R.T. (“Dynamic Release Technology”) construction allows the skis to be playful, forgiving and versatile, with ultimate stability underfoot, letting today’s freeride skier play with the terrain and snow any way they want.”
Flex Pattern & Torsional Rigidity
The Rustler 10 has a solid platform underfoot, and softens progressively through the tips, and, to a slightly lesser extent, the tails.
Shape / Rocker Profile
The Rustler 10’s 16 meter sidecut radius (in the 172 cm) is fairly tight, and feels that the Rustler 10 definitely prefers shorter-radius turns.
The Rustler 10 has a fairly deep tip rocker line, a lot of tip splay, and less rocker and splay in the tail. In the powder, with the softer tips and deeper rocker line will make the Rustler 10 float fairly well for its width.
Compared to the Peacemaker, the Rustler 10 has a fairly similar tip rocker line, but has significantly less tail splay than the twin-tip Peacemaker. This, combined with the Rustler’s slightly more traditional mount point of -7.25 cm, make it feel a bit more directional than the Peacemaker, but the 10 still has a pretty playful profile.
At less than 2000 grams per ski in a 188 cm length, the Rustler 10 is on the lighter side of the ~105mm-underfoot all-mountain category. But interestingly, Blizzard doesn’t explicitly talk about using it as a touring ski or 50/50 ski.
