They say

The BMT is very light for making a comfortable ascent. Going down it gives an excellent transmission of power with perfect control for tackling all conditions

We say

As expected with Volkl this is a really classy looking ski that would look in its element on the roof rack of a Porsche! It has absolutely bombproof construction and generally looks a real high tech piece of kit. Instantly the BMT feels stiffer than other skis we tested in this category, it gives massive levels of grip and is easily the grippiest ski we tested. However when moving into powder and variable conditions that intense engineering and stiffness worked against it and it struggled to give the same levels of float and ease of use that’s needed for low effort skiing.

Tester Comments

James Allen
Over stiff, over engineered, a ski that doesn’t really fit in this category. Bomb proof construction.
Mark Jones
A strong ski on harder snow conditions but not so easy in deeper snow.
