2021 Blizzard Bonafide 97 Men's All-Mountain Ski

The 2021 Blizzard Bonafide 97 Men's All-Mountain Ski

The new Bonafide 97 boasts a redesigned shape and Blizzard’s nifty TrueBlend core, which is custom-designed to place denser, harder woods where more stiffness is needed, and lower-density wood types tapered throughout the rest of the ski. With two layers of Titanal and FlipCore carbon sandwiching the uniquely designed wood, the ski is still as burly as ever according to testers, but with the new shape and the unique feel on edge, the crew still loves the Bonafide. 

STRENGTH: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESS: Playfulness, Quickness
