I have answered the call from my Test Pilots to make the grab handles on the Blaster more suited to the hardcore Freerider. With traditional handles being hard and unforgiving on your lower legs when they are impacted, this was a area that needed reviewing. Some people might just remove them, but in reality, they are a important part of the ski. Now out is the Freeride Series of grab handles. Exact same handle to look at, but as you can see now soft. Its mounting area remains hard but from then becomes soft so now when you hit them, no damage to your legs.
