Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For the first time since it's inception the Bonafide gets a bit of a makeover. Blizzard didn't want to change inherently what the ski was as it has been a crowd favorite for quite some time but it was time to update the ski and give it a little more modern twist. It still has the same 2.5 sheets of metal and full wood core, and carbon flipcore construction but an updated sidecut and rocker profile really help to widen the performance envelope. The increased sidecut (generally 2 meters per size) make the ski more nimble at slower speeds where as the modified rocker profile helps the tips to plane better in softer snow and also helps to stabilize the ski at high speeds. A modern version of a cult favorite.
