The new Vertex looks destined to become the crown jewel of the X-Series skis from Movement. Replacing the Bond-X ski at 84mm underfoot, the Vertex-X adds a mini ABS sidewall underfoot so it can hold up even better to the rigors of everyday touring and mountaineering. It keeps the relatively straight edges near the tip and tail that are a godsend when side-slipping or traversing steep, hard snow. A slightly redesigned tip and tail shape is integrated with light rocker to make turns more fluid. The ski features the high-end North TPT construction that makes the X-skis so light and stable. The Vertex-X has an early nomination for mountaineering ski of the year.
Update 2016/17: Movement updated the colors but kept the ski awesome.
