Movement Control Ski


Wide, ample rocker, generous power, and somehow still light enough to skin back up again and again. Movement’s Control ski sports Light Rocker 12, providing flotation in challenging terrain while not reducing stability in hard snow at speed. ABS Sidewalls are sandwiched underfoot to improve edge hold on technical lines and reduce chatter at high speeds. A trusty, lively, and lightweight Poplar core is the brawn inside of the Control. Sturdy Alpin Edges paired with Movement’s hardened P-Tex 4000 bases won’t shy away from abuse in rock-filled couloirs and late season exits. Looking for a light ski that’s not afraid when you open up the throttle? The Control fits the bill perfectly.

  • Alpin Edges won’t disintegrate after the first rock strike.
  • Double Plate Reinforcement (Titanal) binding mounting zone.
  • ABS Sidewalls increase edge grip and stability at speed.
  • Light Poplar wood core is reinforced with composite material to give strength at low weight.
  • 5-axis carbon fiber is woven around the core to add lightweight rigidity.
  • 1.3mm of P-Tex 4000 is added to the bases to give a strong, smooth finish.
  • Light Rocker 12 means you’ll be floating on billowy clouds.

Update 2018/19: This ski has been replaced by the Session 98.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ryan H
I noticed that the 185cm ski is listed on the Movement website as weighing 1650g, but you have 1480g listed. Just wondering which is correct.

Trying to decide between this ski and the Alp Tracks 100mm. Any input would be appreciated, especially from someone who has skied this.
Answer from jbo
Hi Ryan, the weight we have listed is from our calibrated scale; they came in under spec. The A/T 100 is an easier ski with the generous rocker and floaty design (skied it this morning in fact!). The Control is a bruiser that is really stable on hard snow yet doesn't disappoint in soft snow either.
