Black Diamond’s Zealot and Starlet skis, and Quadrant and Stiletto boots are 2010/20101 recipients of Backcountry Magazine Editors’ Choice Awards. These products performed extremely well at the annual Backcountry, Telemark Skier, and Outside joint test, held at Powder Mountain, Utah in March, and we are proud to extend these awards.
Outstanding tester response, exceptionally high scores, and category-leading overall performance contributed to our selection of the Zealot, Starlet, Quadrant and Stiletto as 2011 Gear Guide Editors’ Choices. The Zealot won over testers with its take-no-prisoners power, dampness, and powder performance, while the Starlet left female testers impressed with its any-condition versatility and light weight. The Quadrant proved itself as a comfortable, ergonomic touring boot with the power and precision to drive larger skis, while the Stiletto receives its second Editors’ Choice award in as many years for its versatility, sweet flex and lateral control.
