Technical info:
This is a heavy aluminum construction from Blizzard. Bonafide is characterized by long rocker transitions in the front and back. The radius is long, but with some more sidecut towards the ends. The tip is also fairly stiff. Two layers of aluminum contribute to a high specific weight.

On snow:
Bonafide feels good, and it is responsive and easy to control. It turns fast and effortlessly and performs well at lower speeds as well. Best suited for riders who are into racing and looking for width, or free riders who want a ski that works well in the piste. Its floatation is not particularly good, but the maneuverability in the turns is the best in the test. We recommend it.
