We say

We were all absolutely gagging to try this one! The BTM looks incredibly high tech and wouldn’t be out of place on the roof rack of a Porsche! Out of all the touring skis we tested the BTM had the highest level of edge grip on hardpack and actually felt very strong when cruising about on the piste. In off piste conditions it has a lovely smooth flex and is perfectly balanced. Although it grips well on hard snow it’s still very easy to use in backcountry conditions and can handle any conditions with ease. Overall it feels like a fantastic choice for skiers who have a strong technical ability and want something to perform well, even when pushed really hard.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
All round belter of a ski for strong skiers! Strong, solid grip on hard snow, but easy versatility for off piste
Al Morgan
Fantastically smooth flex, really stable and grippy. This is an expensive ski, but you get what you pay for
