Yep, it’s back.
By now we think it’s safe to call it a well-established fact that the Bibby is one of our all-time favorite skis. (If this is news to you, just dig around this site for a bit, and enjoy jumping down all the rabbit holes you will find.)
Some of us love the 184 cm model, while some of us love the 190 cm model. But a bunch of us at Blister — and a lot of our friends — and many of our readers — tend to say things about the Bibby like, “Best. Ski. Ever.”
Because the Bibby offers a combination of stability and playfulness that we (still) haven’t found on other skis.
We test a ton of skis each year, and there are certainly a lot of excellent ones out there. But we can still say that no ski we’ve ridden strikes quite this balance, while also having a massive sweet spot. And for that reason, this is still a reference ski for us — as it has been since we first started Blister.
But as the trends in the ski industry are to make skis lighter and lighter (and lighter and lighter and lighter — Dear Lord), the Blister Pro is, by comparison, beginning to feel more and more stable.
So we would say that the 184 cm Blister Pro is a playful ski that can still charge, while the 190 cm Blister Pro is more of a charger that, on the feet of a strong skier, can still play.
So if you’re unsure about which size to go with, check out our review of the ski, and pay close attention to the feedback from readers in the Comments Section.
Each year we work with Luke Jacobson at Moment to dial in the graphics. But we loved last year’s graphic so much that we weren’t ready to retire it. So we said to Luke, “Screw it. Let’s bring it back.” So we are bringing it back, and seriously, you really need to see these things in person.
We’re still proud to have played a role in bringing this ski back. And if we didn’t still think that it is an extremely special ski, it wouldn’t still have our name on it.
