Please see our original Volkl BMT review.
It was strange to see a ski built that only specified one binding model. I can’t mount a tech binding on what appears to be a powerful ski? Is that a ripping sound I hear in the fabric of the universe, or my binding pulling out of the ski? Actually, in our opinion the warning printed on our Volkl BMT 106 testers is probably over-stated. Reason, the ski has does have an “H” pattern reinforced area for bindings mounts. The 10,000 vertical foot question, can you mount a Dynafit binding (or most other tech bindings) on these planks? In our opinion, yes, but with a few caveats. Check it out.
Behold the major caveat underneath the Marker F12.
The famous 'H' template should explain everything, or does it?
What you might want to do with these excellent skis if you really want to rack up some vert.
The Dynafit Radical heel unit screws fall easily in the reinforced 'H' pattern, but the toe screws have a slight overlap. In my opinion, they'd be plenty strong for an average sized to smaller skier, on a plank shorter than our 186 centimeter test skis. If you're big, on long skis, I'd say no. All is not lost, however, as you could still mount a tech binding with a wider base, such as a Plum or ATK with their wide-pattern toe plates.
G3 Ion (available fall of 2014) toe and heel mount pattern falls easily within reinforced area, toe unit pictured here.
