Volkl is calling the new V-Werks BMT 109 the “ultimate backcountry ski for North American conditions.”
The day I tested the BMT we toured in Grizzly Gulch with sunny skies and soft spring conditions. As expected with the full carbon construction, they felt very light underfoot on the way up, and I definitely noticed the energy savings when we got to the top. The full rocker profile wasn’t my favorite in the skin track because of limited contact with the snow, but it is good to have if you’re breaking trail.
The descent is where the BMT stole the show. Of all the carbon touring skis I tested this year, this one was my favorite as far as downhill performance goes. Unlike a lot of the carbon skis that took a little getting used to, I felt like I could really rip these from the first turn.
With 134 mm in the tip, 109 underfoot, 119 in the tail, they felt wide and floaty and the sidecut allowed for a lot of different turn shapes. And combined with the full rocker profile, they have that super fun surfy feel you look for in a powder ski. As far as combining ultra-light touring tech with big mountain performance, Volkl’s done a fine job on this one.
If you’re not willing to sacrifice performance on your hard earned runs but still want to keep your set-up as light as possible, I’d have no problem recommending the Volkl V-Werks BMT 109.
