Movement Black Apple Ski


Black sheep are a disgrace to their families. Black apples are evidently the opposite. Movement is very proud of this 80mm mountaineering and touring ski, both for its versatility and performance. With a longer-than-average radius, the Black Apple excels at arcing long turns and hugging the walls of couloirs. It has an easy-rocker tip and a sufficient underbelly to keep you afloat in the fluff and crud. The svelte profile keeps in manageable in tight spots, and the carbon fiber wrap drives the edges in for security. The Black Apple is finished with Movement’s typical grace, including quality P-Tex, edges, and topsheets. The apple in Movement’s logo probably refers to this ski.

  • Ultra-modern shape with a Light Rocker 8 tip makes it a ‘go anywhere’ ski.
  • Beech wood shock absorber (BSA) enhances the dampness of the light wood core.
  • MLT Dynamic Tri-axial Light carbon fiber adds impressive torsion onto a lightweight ski.
  • Full 2mm of steel edges and P-Tex 4000 are meant for long days in the mountains.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Chuckles67
Is this the 2014/2015 version? What's the difference with 2016/2017 - is the tail design different?
Answer from jbo
Hi Chuckles67, this is the 15/16 topsheet. Other than removing the tail bumper and changing the colors, Movement hasn't modified the ski for this season.
