One of Avie’s ski testers liked—no, loved—this ski so much he was just about ready to walk off the mountain with a pair after trying them out. Yeah, they were that good.
Blizzard didn’t change much for 2018 in the Quattro line. They didn’t need to. They did tweak the IQ bindings just a bit to make them just a bit lighter and a bit more responsive. But that’s it.
If you are a strong intermediate to expert skier, and want a pair of skis that will carve trenches anywhere you point them—the Quattro 8.4 Ti is it. The titanal inserts give the 8.4 Ti tremendous holding power through turns. They don’t slip. An Avie’s ski tester tried to get them to slip on crusty exposed slopes, and they wouldn’t. They don’t chatter. They don’t slow down. They carve. Superbly.
And then they carve some more. And then they carve even more. And just when you thought they couldn’t possible carve any more, they carve some more. Forever more. Did I say they carve? Do you get the picture here?
