They say

From first chair to last call, an extra-powerful freeride ski that can manage anything the day dishes out. The mountain is your canvas, here’s your brush.

We say

The BMX has great, bold graphics and makes a strong statement. It skied really well off piste with lots of float, while feeling very secure underfoot. It also is very maneuverable and it always may you feel like it could get you out of any tight spots with ease. Obviously that 105 underfoot does make an appearance and can feel slow from edge to edge in short turns, but it always feels trustworthy and playful in all backcountry conditions. Overall, this is a versatile off piste ski that won’t let you down in any off piste conditions.
