This is not your father's BBR. In fact, the 10.0 surprised the hell out of a jaded test crew expecting the cruisey, mellow BBR models of last season. "I felt like a god in the trees and crud," said one, noting that the ultra-wide tips floated high and steered easily. Others praised the 10.0's powerful, stable feel in carved turns, noting that it initiated best when they applied pressure just forward of the toepiece. Notes: One of the most distinctive shapes to come along in recent past, the BBR is the brainchild of Bertrand Krafft (Beber to his friends, or BBR for short.) Krafft is the venerated Salomon designer who also gave the world Pocket Rockets and X-Screams. Instead of using a traditional X-shape, Krafft designed the BBR to be like a V, with a surfboard-shaped tip, narrow waist and pintail. Krafft's vision behind the ski was to create a product for everyone and everything�a ski that embraces the real-world conditions, not just untracked powder. With its radical sidecut, the BBR claims to carve on hard snow, while its broad shovel/tip should give it a measure of float on powder days. This year the men's line has increased to four versions, the new 10.0 being the widest. It's desiged for resort and backcountry explorers. Sandwich sidewalls, full woodcore, metal laminates, edge reinforcement.
