They say

The BMX 105 is made for adventure, the proven sandwich construction with Dual Rise technology and titanal layers provides maximum reliability, even in variable conditions.

We say

The BMX is wide underfoot compared to the majority of these skis that we tested in this category. Like many Kastle’s we have tested in the past the BMX feels like a really high quality ski, with fantastic dampening, a smooth ride and incredible stability at high speed. This gives the skier real confidence in building big speeds and driving through difficult conditions. The downside of this relatively heavy build is that they can feel quite heavy underfoot and less agile in shorter turns. This is a ski that is really focused on high speeds and big arcs

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Heavy swingweight and very solid underfoot, needs to be skied at mach 10
John Taylor
Big mountain boat that needs space and pace. Strong quality feel
