Technical info:
Völkl stands out in this company with a long turning radius and long rocker at both ends. The shape is common for wider freeride skis, but unusual in this size. The weight is low on this high-tech carbonfibre construction from the south of Germany, although several other skis have more surface area per gram. The flex curve shows stiff tips and a softer waist.

On snow:
Fri Flyt has called for narrower and lighter skis shaped like freeride models. That´s exactly what we get here. The BMT 94 can feel a little heavy at low speed. At the same time it is very stable and it floats well, considering the width. Other skis may be more playful, but if you want a ski you can rely on in all conditions, this is the number one choice. It is probably best suited for experienced skiers.
