Movement Bond-X Ski & Skin


As part of the X-Series of skis, the Bond-X is created with a unique carbon fiber manufacturing process known as Movement Light Technology X. This semi-secret formula involves weaving carbon fiber around a Karuba wood core to obtain high rigidity and low weight. The part that is not a secret (at least in Europe) is how well the resulting skis perform. With a progressive early-rise tip and a slightly raised tail, the Bond-X has an easy riding feel that allows it to be used by a wide range of skiers. We suspect the Bond-X will be well-received on this side of the pond as well.

  • Early rise tip and 84mm of width help you float over powder and multiple types of less perfect snow.
  • Slightly upturned tail (~2cm) makes it easier to negotiate couloirs where you often have no room to turn around.
  • Patented Thin Ply Technology (TPT) wraps the core with interleaving carbon fibers for multidirectional rigidity.
  • Core is an ultra-light selection of Karuba Paulownia wood with poplar added as a reinforcement.
  • P-Tex 4000 is used in a 1.3mm sheet to shield the base and slide well on the snow.
  • Includes 65% mohair / 35% nylon climbing skins pre-cut to the Bond-X dimensions.

** Pricing Note: Because these skis are directly imported instead of purchased through a distributor, they are essentially priced in Euros. To help offset the exchange rate, we are including matching skins free with all Movement skis ($160-$180 value). Quantities are extremely limited.

** Telemarkers: Movement does not recommend mounting telemark bindings on these skis.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Lars
I tested the movement Bond and found them impressive but too heavy. Can i have the same downhill feeling for the x ski as i had for the Bond ski?

Answer from jbo
Hi Lars, good question. The X-versions are the same shape so they will carve similarly and can still hold an edge. There is a subtle difference in handling with the lighter versions, which are less damp and can have a bit more tip vibration at speed. Things like jump turns take less effort, I saw someone do a 270 instead of a 180 on their first attempt with lighter skis. You will happily get used to these things after experiencing the up though!

Question from Brian Melvin
Are you able to get this ski in the 183 cm version? And can you import other Movement skis - they seem to be hard to come by in the states.


Answer from jbo
Hi Brian, we were frustrated by the lack of Movement in the U.S. too! We can sometimes get additional skis from them, though they don't produce much excess stock so they often sell out for the season rather quickly. I will check on their inventory for the 183 and send you an e-mail.

UPDATE: 183 delivered!
