Overview

BUILT FOR LONG DAYS OF TOURING AND HARD CHARGING DESCENTS

At only 90mm underfoot, the BMT 90 is the most ascent orientated model in Volkl's V-Werks Big Mountain Tour range. Geared towards longer tours, quick turns and charging down tight chutes, it's a ski which comfortably ticks all those boxes and so much more. It's full-wrap Carbon Fibre jacket should tell you all you need to know - this is a stiff ski for adventurous and experienced freetourers.

Don't judge a book by its cover… unless of course its cover is totally badass

There's no getting away from it - when you wrap a ski in carbon fibre you leave yourself open to backhanded remarks like "Sure, it looks flashy, but does it actually ski well?!" It's a sentiment that Volkl clearly pre-empted and were well prepared for, ensuring that the BMT 90's innards were just as technologically advanced as its carbon-wrapped exterior. Its full wood core is comprised of two different species of wood - dense Ash underfoot not only gives the ski powerful and lively handling, but also creates a solid platform for the binding screws to really get stuck into. While the use of superlight Paulownia in the nose and tail - known for its unrivalled strength-to-weight ratio - gives the BMT 90 even and sustained flex through the full length of the ski while simultaneously lowering the overall weight significantly, keeping the ski true to its touring roots.

When every gram counts

It's all well and good stripping excess weight out of your skis, but those of us familiar with hiking are well aware of its trappings - of which topsheet piling ranks as one of the most energy draining. No matter how light your setup is, once the snow starts to accumulate on your topsheet it can make your skis up to 30% heavier. To combat this, the BMT 90 features Volkl's ICE.OFF topsheet which uses a unique surface structure and hydrophobic composition to eliminate icing and snow build-up on the topsheet. Lighter skis prevent extreme fatigue while touring, especially on long and steep uphill sections.

If you don't allow price to come between you and the best technology around, then the Volkl BMT 90 is likely to be the perfect, ultra-light touring choice for you. Effortlessly ascend, charge your descent, then do it all over again, and again, and again, and... well, you catch our drift.
