Like the Zealot (at right), the new Verdict has metal layers, vertical sidewalls, and sandwich construction, and it surprised us with a kind of power and grip it didn't have before. At 102 millimeters underfoot, it's wide enough to float yet narrow and nimble enough for firm days. A good first fatty for the East and a solid daily driver or backcountry ride anywhere.
