The B83 hugged the terrain and adapted to changing snow conditions with little attitude. Look for a silky on-snow feel and a sidecut and flex that let you mix up turn shapes.
Tracks through crud like a bruiser ski, but it ain’t heavy. You can slink the Bandit through trees with ease.
Not lively enough.
