Blizzard | Bonafide 97 Snow Skis + Marker Griffon 13 ID Bindings | Mens | 2022
The Blizzard Bonafide is a tried and true high level all mountain ski. Its smooth, stiff flex and race-inspired feel have made it a favorite of ski instructors and OG rippers alike. It's as fast and technical of an inbounds ski you can get on, and if you love making hard turns on any surface, the Blizzard Bonafide 97 Skis are a solid bet. Blizzard s signature Flipcore technology gives them tons of liveliness and edge hold, and a new TrueBlend wood core gives this year's Bonafide an even smoother flex than ever before.
Rocker Camber Rocker – Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Carbon Flipcore Technology – A revolutionary rockered ski production process that incorporates a uni-directional carbon frame onto the core of the ski that results in great performance with a light and easy feel.
TrueBlend Wood Core – TrueBlend is wood core technology is made of a blend of two different woods. Using pieces of specifically positioned high density (stiff) wood makes the core strong in the middle for stability and edge grip and then progressively softer to the tip and tail for effortless turn initiation and release. The result is a very smooth and balanced ski that delivers a feeling of confidence and control.
