What Meier says about the BNK
“The BNK (formerly Big Nose Kate) has an updated profile with more sidecut and more versatility. It’s an all-terrain, all-mountain, handcrafted downhill ski. With its minimized traditional camber & early rise tip, tight turns are effortless from stash to stash. Like its namesake, this ornery cuss of a ski takes nothing, ripping through any terrain with dexterity and grace.
With a nod to local history, the Meier ladies ski honors Mary Katherine Horony Cummings, (aka Big Nosed Kate) was the girlfriend and intellectual equal to Doc Holiday.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the BNK:
In Front of Toe Piece: 9.5-10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9
We received the Meier BNK for testing this winter. Keep an eye out for updates, and let us know of any questions you have.
