Technical info:
The BMX is a ski of average stiffness. It has a long setback and an average sidecut which becomes somewhat shorter in front. It´s one of the heaviest constructions in the test, but this is more a case of skis in general becoming much lighter over the past few years. It has more rocker and taper in the back ski compared to the almost identical FX 104 we tested two years ago.

On snow:
Wow! Here is a ski that will do almost anything you want it to do. Its name and design is taken from a previous model in the same series, but apart from that this is a new experience. Here we have a solid freeride ski with a sober mid waist which is real allrounder. It feels long and just loves speed. At the same time there is sufficient rocker and taper - more than what the test riders are used to from Kästle - which makes for a complete freeride ski. We recommend it.
