Following up the Rustler line's roaring 2018 debut with the 10 and 11, the Rustler 9 rounds out the family for 2019. At 94mm underfoot, it's the narrowest, most on-piste oriented ski in the collection. The construction here largely mirrors that of the wider Rustlers, with freeride rocker, metal underfoot that tapers to give way to carbon in the tips and tails, and a multi-layer wood core (poplar, beech, balsa, paulownia). All the Rustlers feature Blizzard's Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. The differences for the Rustler 9: more camber and more metal. Designed as an ideal East Coast ski, it's lighter and more versatile (though less burly and damp) than the Brahma. The Rustler 9 grips well on hard snow and, with a light swingweight, skis smooth and quick in all conditions you throw at it. As some of the best skis in the industry get slimmer without compromising versatility, the Rustler 9 leads the charge.
