Movement Apex Ski

Versatility, easy and quick turning, excellent edge grip. Those were the primary concerns when developing the Apex ski. If you’re looking to charge in difficult terrain, but don’t want a huge weight penalty, the Movement Apex could be for you. The light tip and tail rocker makes turn initiation a breeze. Multiple axes of carbon wrap the Poplar wood core for a stable ride at speed. Shock-absorbing sidewalls dampen the ski and help with the impressive edge hold. The Apex is a solid partner for big lines in scary mountains.

  • 2-axis carbon and poplar wood core to blend pop and stiffness.
  • VA-Tech vibration absorbing rubber/glass layer in the front.
  • ABS Shock Absorber system location primarily underfoot.
  • Double Plate Reinforcement for binding area: titanal and fiber.
  • P-Tex 4000 bases and Alpin edges can take some abuse.

Update for 17/18: New topsheet, ski remains unchanged otherwise.

Update for 18/19: Same ski but an even cooler topsheet.

Michael H (used product a few times)
 
OK, it says used a few times, but I've only toured them once, today at Mt. Shasta. I have the 177 with Movement Apex, pre-cut Colltex skins and Hagen Core Bindings. Blown away would be an understatement. Not only are they lighter than the Manaslu/Radical FT combo they replaced, the skins grip better and glide better than the Dynafit and most importantly, they ski like a real ski. Coming out of the Powder Bowl, making reasonably fast carved turns as the pitch flattened, I had an instant thought that I'd be completely happy if this was my only setup and I had no true alpine gear (I have three pairs). It's an amazing ski.
