This ski certainly will be in our lineup for next season.  Several of our staff have given this gem the thumbs up!

 

Observations:  Perfect blend of flotation and balance.  Deflection nonexistent.  Encountering ice presented no surprises.  This baby tracks!  Exudes confidences, reduces skier fatigue.  Easy to effect differing turn shapes.

They (MX98/BMX98) are very smooth.

Hi!  I tried these skis at Whistler this weekend and really loved them. Was wondering if you could tell me what the difference is between the MX 98 and the BMX 98? Also do you think this could work as an every day ski or are they tto soft for icy days?

I'm assuming you mean this years MX98. The only difference really is the black base on the MX98. Is it OK on ice? Depends on your definition of ice. It's acceptable, but not really the ski you want to be on when it is icy.
