Ever had a multi-tool that you absolutely loved and took everywhere? You probably raved about the features. The saw! The can opener! The pliers! The blades! The screwdriver! The Rustlers are those skis: they do everything. The narrowest version, the Rustler 9, is the most optimized of the bunch for on-trail crushing. Built with metal that tapers to carbon toward the tips and tails, it combines torsional rigidity and strong edge-hold underfoot with buttery smoothness in the front and back. Lightweight, the Rustler 9 has a medium-soft flex for a ski with metal, and it skis playfully in powder. It's also an excellent bump ski, with a nimble design that makes it quick edge-to-edge. On groomers, it wants to make snappy carved turns, and it feels solid in tight chutes and steeps. Expert skiers rave about the Rustler 9 as a narrower one-ski-quiver, and intermediates find accessible skis with a high ceiling. We just keep skiing on them.
