Strenghts:
Where do I start, so responsive!! Holds the edge really well (no matter the length of turn this ski gripped and i was going from soft snow to hard packed ice as the wind was up).

So good in all the conditions i skied in that day: Minus 2, on piste with a bit of wind around 28mph, snow conditions were groomed to ice as it was around 9am.

If I had to choose 1 ski to cruise the mountain at speed, I would take this bad boy everytime as i tried a little soft stuff at the edge of the run and it smashed that too.

Brill ski and as soon as I earn more than what my part time job pays, I am buying these.

Weaknesses:
A little pricey for the every day skier but I suppose you get what you pay for.

Summary:
Buy them or I will.

Strenghts:
¤ Cruel all-round ski!
¤ Direction stable where you aim, they take you.
¤ Surprises in powder.
¤ Going down the ski holder on the Gondolas, unlike the powder layers ...

Weaknesses:
¤ As others have written, the more Bonafides attack attack the more the better!
The disadvantage of this is of course the acid in the thighs but it goes over ..: P
¤ When half a snow comes, they probably meet their superiors, but then you have other skis anyway.

Summary:
Is on my second pair and is most impressed with how it is possible to stand and get cut where it is open and messy. Roughly about 70% of my time on these skis rest on the wider when it has come properly with snow.
Can reflect on the fact that many times I choose these skis if it has reached up to 20cm snow.
Dreaming of a pair of Bonafide according to me: A good bottom where it is steep with 10-20cm snow that has been 2-3 days!
A really good all-round ski, the ski I take with me when I just have to bring a couple!

Strenghts:
stable
Easy for the skilled skier
Väldämpade
Extremely good grip

Weaknesses:
Cord off piste

Summary:
Extremely good skiing on hard or packed snow. In snow as a wind-packed snow or crust, they want to cut down and are difficult to keep on cord.
On hard or packed snow there is probably no better ski in this width.

Model year: 2016
Riding style: Most off-pissed but these skis are mostly in the piste

Strenghts:
A ski that, regardless of speed, feels safe and flutter very rarely.
If you have the strength and endurance of your legs, you can easily cut through all stages from manchester to sorbet.
 

Weaknesses:
Stiff, heavy, the opposite of playful.
"Like dropping a freight train from the top of the mountain" - Erik

Summary:
A really good ski for those who like to go fast.
Not an optimal ski for off-piste as it is difficult to swing, which works well if it is open but becomes frustrating in forests and busy parties.

Strenghts:
Unbelievably stable at high speed, good edge grip. Drive most of its way.

Weaknesses:
Worried at low speeds. Requires a lot of you as a skier.

Summary:
Great skiing if you like speed - really with speed. The faster you drive them and more you push in the turns, the better you enjoy Bonafides. Very fun to have when it starts to get upright or rocky in the piste - the ski runs over everything and bits incredibly even on icey surfaces. So requires a lot of you as a skier and a couple of tight thighs are recommended.

Because the ski requires speed, I think you should be a good skier if you're going to get out of the piste to get out of them. Speed ​​in the cushions and the ski is fantastic, you're getting the skate incredibly hard and reluctant. So you're more a playful skater, maybe Bonafides is not for you. If you like speed, control and rigidity, it's an incredible choice. They want to break on!

Strenghts:
Probably the world's best, most all-round skiing. Incredibly good carving.

Weaknesses:
-

Summary:
Thought to have as Alpine skiing a few years for aggressive driving both in and outside the piste and as ice-breakers at the home in Lyngen if the crowd would get too thick. Has put on Mark Kingpin but does not intend to use this on long top trips due to the weight, but otherwise it will fit almost everything. I had high expectations. It stands up to everyone. Like a race-ski in the piste and comes along very well outside thanks to small but well functioning rocks both front and back. Minimum span of a couple of mm gives good contact. Absolutely brilliant design and solid material. Quality Feeling. You just want to drive more and faster.

Riding style: Everything but park

Strenghts:
Good pressure in all types of snow, both pistons and pads. Feels stable in low as high levels and has good ice grip. In the powder I think they lift me up enough.

Weaknesses:
Difficult to get short turns which can make them a bit difficult in the woods

Summary:
Cruel skiing that works every ski day.

Strenghts:
Stable skid, which does not give way to somewhere. The ultimate allround ski slope that works both in the slope and outside, but it is imperative that you can put pressure when it is hard with a nice flexibility where the top and the end have a harmony.

Weaknesses:
Something heavy

Summary:
Perfect allround skiing
