Alpine Ski Movement Black Apple

Ski sold without binding.

Movement puts its signature on the Black Apple, a ski that loves the mountain when the mountain gets wild. A ski that loves silence and light powder. A ski that's light, versatile and can turn any skiing day into moments of pure magic. The Black Apple features a Karuba and composite woodcore designed to keep the weight as low as possible, greatly beneficial for approaches. Once the uphill bit is over, just enjoy the powder with the Light Rocker making the ski literally float above the surface. No need to sit back, just let it surf the deep. And if you happen to go across some bits of chunky powder or need to end your tour by the groomed slopes, no problem, the ski is responsive and holds onto any grounds with only one goal in mind. Making you happy.  

  

What our testers say : Brand new in Movement's line, the Black Apple is getting into the touring industry and for a first try, it's a good try. Best suited for intermediate and advanced skiers, the ski is truly adaptable to any terrain and shines through the mountain. It's reactive and controllable on hard snow and offers a great surfy feel on pow. It's also very light and feels really good at all times of the tour. Highly recommended.

Weight of the pair in grams

  • - 2300 gr en 169 cms

Structure - Construction

  • - Dynamic Light Tri-Axial Fiber :

    This structure delivers a stiff flex and resists to torsion. It is lighter than the standard tri-axial.

  • - MLTech Construction :

    Monocoque construction.

  • - Karuba Core :

    Wood is alive, strong and resilient, and guarantees the ski’s continued resilience and longevity. MOVEMENT skis use only PURE wood cores; no synthetic or composite synthetic/wood cores (wood with injected foam) – (except kids skis). These cores are shaped from the most select materials, and are very accurately calibrated for the optimum result. We certify that the origin of our wood cores are FSC or PEFC. We have eliminated in our wood core assembly process the use of toxic adhesives.

     

    Karuba wood Core, very light.

Camber type

  • - Classic Camber :

    Great grip on hard-pack, with the longest edge contact for edge hold and stability.

Rocker type

  • - Tip rocker :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Various

  • - Corund Shiny :

    Movement topsheets are a 0.5 mm double polyamide (ICP8210), available in different surface treatments (corund / grip / noppe / glossy). The surface treatments are selected for each specific use. This durable polyamide has an anti UV treatment (no yellowing), resists abrasion, and resists deformation with high temperature fluctuation. The anti-stick grip surface treatment resists snow sticking and can be cleaned without damaging the surface.

Construction

There are 3 main types of construction

 

- CAP : The core is wrapped in a cap. This construction brings forgiveness to the ski. It is often featured on entry-of-range piste skis or on wide skis for a great mix between forgiveness and a sturdy core.

 

- Sandwich : The sandwich construction is a standard in terms of quality. This construction incorporates different layers of materials selected according to their specific properties. It delivers grip and stability, but it's generally more demanding.

 

- Minicap Sandwich : The perfect compromise for progression, or for technical skiers. This construction offers excellent carving abilities to the ski while providing forgiveness thanks to the Cap tips, allowing for more relaxed skiing.

Sandwich
Core

The core gives its character to the ski. There are two main types :

 

- The composite core : This injected core is mainly featured on recreational or intermediate skis. It delivers flexibility, forgiveness and lightweight. It's perfect for learning the basics and progress with soft and comfortable skis.

 

- The wood core : It has always been used in the ski constructions and ensures great durability. It is sturdy and reactive. There are many kinds of woods used, all delivering different properties.

 

Cores are reinforced with fibers. The most common one is the fiberglass, well known for its mechanic properties. Other fibers are used, like basalt and aramid, replacing titanal plates. They enhance stiffness and impact absorbtion, and also increase the ski's lightweight.

Bois et fibre
Rocker

A rocker is a rising tip, long and progressive, allowing the ski to float better on powder snow. At the same time, it reduces the actual running length of the ski when it sits flat on the ground which enhances the pivot of the ski and makes it easily manoeuvrable.

 

Rockers are featured on skis tips, and sometimes on tails. That improves the floatation even more, and reduces the running length of the edge for an easier pivot for piste specific skis.

Ski Camber

Camber defines the favorite playground of the ski and gives it its character. There are three main types of camber:

 

- the classic camber : it enhances energy transfers towards the edges and has a bias for pistes. It gives the board more kick and increases pop and reactivity.

 

- the flat camber : it makes the ski pivot easier while providing a good edge grip on your piste runs. It is used for freestyling and riding in the backcountry.

 

- the reverse camber : perfect for deep powder conditions, it enhances the ski floatation and increases pivot. Fat skis often feature this technology, coupled with a double rocker.

Classic Classic
Type of turns

If the radius of a ski is short (10 to 14m on an adult ski), short and sharp turns will be easier. If the radius is longer, it will perform better on larger turns where it'll be more stable (from 18 to 22m on an adult ski).

 

The radius can vary according to the pressure you apply on the edge. That's why you cannot define a radius with one sole turn, it just gives you a general idea of the behaviour of the ski.

Short radii are often associated with liveliness when long radii are synonyms of stability.
