The crew unanimously praised the BMX 115’s velvety flex pattern and phenomenal glide, and they found it would crush choppy conditions without a second thought. The ski’s silver fir and beech wood core and semi-cap sidewall construction is traditional and powerful; it also took some muscle to get through tight spaces. Add in a dual rise in the shovel and tail, plus a translucent Hollowtech tip, and the BMX 115 looks as handsome as it skis. 

Strength: Crud Performance 

Weakness: Forgiveness
