Movement Sweet Apple Ski


The Sweet Apple could be the perfect ski for avid female ski tourers. With a light rocker tip and a healthy 80mm of width underfoot, the Movement ski easily stays above powder and crud. And the dynamic tri-axial carbon fiber wrapped around the light Karuba wood core gives it enough rigidity to grip well on hardpack. Best of all, the Sweet Apple weighs in at just over a kilo so you can take this all-mountain ski all around the mountains.

  • Light Karuba Paulownia wood core is mixed with a composite to balance stiffness and weight.
  • Tri-axial carbon fiber is used to reinforce the wood core to add lightweight rigidity.
  • 1.3mm of P-Tex 2000 protects the bases and enables a smooth glide.
  • Corund shiny topsheet has a unique lavendar design that matches the purple apple on the tip of the base.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ken McCarthy
For a women- 120lbs, 5' 4" tall, Expert level skier would you recommend the Vertex X 161cm or the Sweet Apple 161 or 153cm?
Answer from jbo
Hi Ken, good question and she could go either way. The Vertex-X is lighter and a bit stiffer, but still easy to handle because of the shape and profile. It can handle aggressive skiing. The Sweet Apple is more of a casual ski at a lower price.
Answer this question:

Jim (used product regularly)
I bought these in 153cm for my girlfriend; she's now skied them in a range of winter and spring backcountry conditions, and some resort use. She loves them. She finds them stable, forgiving, easy to initiate turns. The tip rocker seems to help a lot in variable snow. She's a light (105 lbs), not very aggressive skier. I can't speak to how they would perform for a hard charger, but for moderate touring they've performed very well.
Mounted with Speed Radical bindings, it's a reasonably light and fairly inexpensive setup.
