The Bonafide has always been a tester favorite and a good ski to have on your side in a bar fight. The latest version remains a versatile all-mountain brawler, but testers said a lighter, slashier swing weight and quicker sidecut gives this year’s Bonafide a more cheerful demeanor. They still use words like “precise” and “strong,” and still say its “happiest on the feet of an expert.” But they liked its new quickness. Schiller: “Super nimble in trees. Quick yet stable on the groomed.”

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Crud Performance, Quickness/Maneuverability
