We use exclusively top quality sintered bases with high molecular density. We use 3 different P-Tex ( 2000 / 4000 / 5000 ) bases throughout the range which are carefully chosen to match the individual ski.
We reviewed the way we use our different edges throughout the entire range, with a focus on increasing durability of the skis that get the heaviest use. We’ve done this by varying the thickness of the edge along the length of the majority of the skis. The touring and free-touring ranges now benefit from a wider edge in places to help resist impacts associated with poor snow cover. The only skis with a completely straight and thinner edge profile are the competition touring range for weight-saving reasons. The edges are in 3 distinct widths; 1.8mm, 2.0mm & 2.4mm.
The Light Rocker tip has a grading from 6 to 12 depending on the length of the tip, all of which give great absorption of uneven terrain and variable snow conditions. Entry in to the turn is super easy and progressive with these tips. The camber of the center section of the ski and the shape of the tail guarantee stability and edge grip.
All of our MOVEMENT experience & expertise is used in this construction. Only the best materials are used, but the key to this technology remains a closely-guarded secret!
A combination of 89mm underfoot, Light Rocker 10 tip and 1160grams in 177cm make the RESPONSE X a breath of fresh air in the Free tour category. The RESPONSE X has received numerous accolades in the skiing press, thanks in part to its NORTH TPT technology construction. This ski’s width make it a favourite with free-tourers who are as motivated by the descent as the ascent. It grips superbly in hard conditions, floats through powder and loves spring snow conditions. The RESPONSE X is the ideal ski for long trips and multi-day tours, where the descent is as much the goal as the ascent.
