Outstanding handling in powder. The running surface gains about 64 % in comparison with a classic frontside ski. The combination of reduced weight with a broader waist cut guarantee the optimum uplift in powder.
The wider radius in the shovel of the DUAL RADIUS BIG MOUNTAIN delivers exceptional stability, while still being forgiving. The front radius exits the running track before the contact point, merging the shovel geometry in a straight line. The LOW CAMBER concept minimizes deep powder aggressiveness and provides a harmonious flex line in combination with EARLY RISE ROCKER. The ski has been reduced to a minimum of 5 mm, enabling greater manueverability. EARLY RISE ROCKER technology improves the uplift and enables a smoother handling under diverse snow conditions. The slight rise of the shovel in front of the traditional contact point enables better flotation. For the BMX108 the EARLY RISE ROCKER design starts at 360 mm. This indicates the length of the EARLY RISE ROCKER zone, measured from the tip of the ski in the direction of the waist.
The core of this ski has been constructed from poplar (0.4 kg/dm³) and beech (0.8 kg/dm³) creating a lightweight, yet durable, ski. The core has been bonded with an adhesive block binder, in comparison with sheet binding, allowing further weight reduction through the reduction of binding components.
Due to the fact that torsional rigidity may be reduced in deep powder snow, both sheets are made of fiberglass plastic (GRP). Additionally this ski is equipped with extremely impact resistant ABS sidewalls. A further reduction in weight has been achieved with the HOLLOWTECH technology that is not only applied in the shovel zone but also in the tail zone of the BMX108.
