New for 2013/2014, the Brahma borrows from its brother, the Bonafide, with its beefy construction, but with a slightly narrower 88-millimeter waist. “This is a solid, big-mountain charger,” Attridge said. “It’s more of a Type-A personality than a playful teenager, but it’s stable at speed.” Testers gave the Brahma top scores for carving and stability, while giving it lower marks for playfulness and float. Construction designed for edge hold and stability includes two-and-a-half sheets of titanium around a full wood core with sandwich sidewalls. The result is a wide-platform race ski feel that’s “solid on edge and fast enough for a NASTAR gold,” according to Gaudet. Full rocker, added during the production process with Blizzard’s Flipcore 3D technology, adds versatility to what Kasper called “an east or west All-Mountain charger.”
