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.
The new 3D light cap ABS sidewall is unique in the way that the ABS runs through to the wood core of the ski and works also as a form of reinforcement. This system also offers a weight gain over the classic CTS which why it is integrated in to the Free Touring and Freeride ranges.
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 Twin Rocker has an exaggerated length and height of rocker on both the tip and the tail which allows the ski to pivot easily and float effortlessly in powder. The ski still has a good contact zone in the center with plenty of edge to keep grip and maintain stability at speed.
The wood core of a ski is fundamentally important; not only does it give the ski its liveliness, it also pre-determines the ski’s durability and therefore differs hugely between the different ranges (piste-freeride-freestyle-touring). We continue to only use wood cores that are certified FCS and PEPS (www.fcs.org, www.pefc.org). We use the following woods in our manufacturing: Beech, Okume, Poplar, EPL poplar light, Light Karuba, Ultra light Karuba. Every core is designed to match the qualities of the relevant ski.
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!
The X version of the VERTEX, this new ski is going to impress even the hardened ski tourers out there. Like its predecessor – the BOND X – the VERTEX X has relatively straight edges at the tip and tail which helps with edge-grip on traverses and steeper slopes. This is a medium-width ski at 84mm under foot, with a high performance construction and light cap with ABS (CTS LIGHT) which is designed to take the every day beating of intensive touring. The VERTEX X has an innovative tip and tail shape with rockers to help the ski pivot and add fluidity to the turn. This will certainly be one of the best sellers in the collection.
