Movement Session 98 Ski


The Movement Session 98 is not a ski that will stay shelved for long. Designed for high-performance skiers looking to push bigger, steeper, and faster, the Session 98 is a free-touring ski that will more than satisfy. With a light Karuba core and a 5-axis carbon layup, the Session 98 will perform almost magically in demanding snow conditions without emptying the energy reserves on the way up. While being a solid mid-winter workhorse, you may lose count of the number of days you have skied as spring turns to summer. Movement’s DPR-Ti in combination with their P-Tex 4000 bases will keep you going and going. If you are a solid skier looking for a solid ski, the Session 98 is your friend.

  • ASA (ABS Shock Absorber) is an underfoot sidewall that acts as a shock-absorber for those hectic descents.
  • DPR-Ti (Double Plate Reinforcement Fiber and Titanal) two-layer system incorporates fiberglass and Titanal layers under the mounting zone to ensure solid anchoring.
  • Vibration Absorber Technology (VA-Tech) utilizes a natural rubber and fiberglass layer located in the front of the ski to absorb any teeth chattering vibrations.
  • A specially engineered 5-Axis Carbon Layup surrounds the core of the ski to maximize performance in difficult snow conditions.
  • Movement Rando Edges provide the hold needed for those steep chutes or icy exits.
  • P-Tex 4000 sintered bases provide the quality and durability for extended use.
  • Movement Karuba wood is certified by FSC & PEFC.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Scythian
How do these skis compare with Voile Ultravector for touring and skiing in variable/less than ideal condiitons? I noticed that they have similar dimensions, Session has a bit shorter radius, perhaps larger area and more pronounced sidecut, but appears 100 g. lighter per ski. Ultravector has a good reputation, but it is very hard to find a detailed review of Session. Thanks.
Answer from TSB
Greetings Scythian, Siberian nomadic warrior! Picking between the Session 98 and Ultra Vector for your trusty steed would indeed be a tough choice. They're both quite turny, powerful skis that like to go a little faster than is wise. Compared to other lightweight skis they're both more damp and able to soak up chatter on hard snow. The Session likes to be driven a bit more from the front seat with good forward pressure to smear the tips around, while the Ultra Vector won't slap you around when you get in the back seat and pivot turns in choppy snow. That said, there's a reason why we carry the Session 98, as well as Movement's Alp Tracks line, but stick with just the Hyper Vector among Voile's offerings. The Session definitely proves its worth compared with lighter skis, while the Ultra Vector doesn't gain a huge advantage over its carbon sibling. If you're earning your turns consistently (as befits a nomadic horseman), the Hyper Vector won't slow you down on even the longest of skintracks.
