 There’s seemingly nothing a Sheeva can’t do. That was the sum of the feedback from testers who tried the Sheeva 9 and the wider Sheva 10.  “Very playful in powder and bumps,” said Lisa Cheng. Val Wootton chimed in with, “Easy to put on edge and it rides smooth at speed.” Like the Rustler, Blizzard equipped the Sheeva with a new wood core that mixes poplar and paulownia with stringers of poplar. The latter are longer in the middle of the ski and shorter toward the edges to create a progressive flex that’s stiffest under foot and softer at the tip. To this mix, Blizzard added two pieces of Titanal, one along each edge. The Titanal gives the ski a damp feel and powerful grip without too much stiffness. In other words, “They turn with minimal effort, but they still carve aggressively,” said Alexis Borden-Sayah. The Sheeva 9 performed best under the feet of powerful skiers, and testers preferred the 9 for inbounds ripping over the wider 10.
