Tester's Review

We warn against obsessing over the numbers, but there it is: the Bonafide scored highest of all the skis in all categories. That's putting it all together, which is exactly what this returning champ (best in show last year too) does, with sidecut, rocker, and flex in perfect, harmonious blend. Given its width and rocker, it ought to prefer deep snow, but the Bonafide is every bit as enthusiastic about groomers (No. 1 in both Stability and Hard-Snow) and even bumps (No. 2 in Quickness). Testers warned that their 187-cm test length required attention in tight spots, but otherwise they were throwing superlatives and generally fawning. "Stable, smooth, quick, reactive, powerful, comforting," etc., ad nauseam. Sick ski.
