Hakkoda BPS – Bluemoris Ski
Freeride & Backcountry
Sidecut: 115-86-107 (176)
Woodcore/HM Sintered base/
The BPS stands for Backcountry Powder Ski. For a ski that is only 86mm in the waist, many critics would be forgiven for thinking that this was more of an all-mountain ski. The brilliance behind this ski though is its shape and lightness. Produced with a beech core, sandwich construction and a wide tip, this little beauty snuffles through the powder as easily as an otter through water. Understated in design, but stunning in burning red, the HM sintered base ski is responsive and forgiving in all conditions. The BPS rides as smooth as it looks, grips the piste with ease and maneuvers as well as a ski twice as stiff and unforgiving.
Aimed at the intermediate skier who is looking for their first all quiver ski so they can begin venturing into the powder without any drama. Also a very apt ski for ski touring due to its weight and versatility.
