For the Shift, Movement set out to create a wide free-touring ski that gave a new dimension to the sector by keeping it ultralight. They seem to have accomplished their goal by using North Thin Ply Technology (TPT), which is a special method of spinning multidirectional carbon fibers around a ski core. And by using a light Karuba wood core mixed with a composite material, they managed to make the ski rigid yet lively. Movement made the tail of the Shift stiffer than the tip, which adds stability on the edge in challenging terrain. But with 98mm of ski underfoot and a light rocker tip, the ski can certainly hold its own in soft snow. Enjoy.
Update 2015/16: The Shift got a graphics update and are weighing in around 75-100g lighter than list.
