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!
The X-SERIES version of the BLACK APPLE was introduced last season and is perhaps the most versatile ski in the Touring range. NORTH TPT technology ensures this ski is featherlight, yet boasting 80mm underfoot and armed with a Rocker 8 tip it chews up terrain almost like a freeride ski. The modern shape means that ascents are a breeze and descents are a pleasure. Weighing in at 908 grams the APPLE X (169 cm) should soon become the tool of choice for a lot of ski touring fans.
