Tester's Review

The Element epitomizes BD's serious approach to fun and quality. It's a soft-snow specialist (an über-rockered forebody doesn't take well to hard snow) that's easy to smear in steep, powder-choked trees and surf through deep back bowls. Western patrollers and off-trail chargers will love the stiff, wheelie-incapable tail for running wrecks or landing big airs.
