Justice ski wins Outside Magazine's Gear of the Year Award for Winter 2009
GREAT NEWS! Our new Justice ski has been awarded the prestigious Gear of the Year award from Outside Magazine in their annual Winter Buyer's Guide. The Verdict won Gear of the Year in 2007, and in 2009 the winner is the Justice, a ski born from the groundbreaking powder-specialist geometry of our Megawatt but with a toned-down performance for all-mountain excellence.
Here's what the Gear of the Year review says:
"With a slightly rockered tip, minimal camber and plenty of girth (115 underfoot), the Justice is a confidence inspiring powder board. But it's not so fat or rockered that it feels skittish on firmer snow. In other words, it's just right: not as stiff as the Zealot, BD's big-mountain ski, with a surfy feel similar to the Megawatt, their powder-specific pig. For such a light ski, the wood-core Justice has remarkable 'pop,' 'guts,' plus any of the dozen or so other words testers used to describe how lively and unflappable it performed in leftover snow. You can see how it shaves weight: BD simply machines away core material where it's not needed, which is why the topsheet looks like a contour map."
