They say

Takes the revolutionary V shape from last year’s BBR, reduces the width of platform, and uses a lighter bamboo layer within the core.

We say

The wide-rockered shovel - a distinctive feature of any BBR - makes itself felt off piste, when it fl oats up easily and feels really happy to pivot and steer. On the groomed runs, it feels great at medium-to-long turns, with good stability and encourages the transition into the new direction. It feels and looks distinctively different from the rest of the pack, and its performance for all-mountain skiing is very strong.
