Alpine Ski Movement Vertex

Ski sold without binding.

The Movement Vertex is an all-mountain ski shaped for ski touring and go on an adventure. Its weight has been reduced to the maximum thanks to its karuba core and ultra light carbon fiber. We have here a blade with 1400g on the scale for a 177cm ski, perfect to be mounted with insert touring bindings to leave the crowded slopes and explore the entire mountain. On a construction side, the Vertex offers a tip and tail rocker to ease turn entrances and exits on packed snow and to float in deep. 

What can the Movement Vertex ski do? 

Its lightness predisposes it to great uphill and downhill touring sessions even on several days trip. You will save energy during the ascent and arrive on the top still fresh to be able to enjoy the descent even more. Have a drink, put the skins away, lock the bindings and boots back to ski more and drop in. The Vertex only offers a 84mm waist but the tip rocker does a great job to keep you afloat in deep. You won’t float as much as if you were riding a fat freeride ski but the manoeuvres are effortless thanks to its modern shape. If you encounter crud snow, you can trust the classic camber to grip and get you out of there. The Vertex is also powerful on the slopes and will please skiers looking for a single pair of ski for this winter. 

Who is the Movement Vertex ski designed for? 

This men’s touring ski is designed for confirmed skiers looking for light and versatile blades to have fun on the whole mountain and enjoy a total freedom of action.

Type of turns

  • Multi-turns


  • Directional (front tip)  :

    The ski shape allows only a directional use.

Structure - Construction

  • CTS Light  :

    The new 3D light cap ABS sidewall is unique in the way that the ABS runs through to the wood core of the ski and works also as a form of reinforcement. This system also offers a weight gain over the classic CTS which why it is integrated in to the Free Touring and Freeride ranges.

  • Double Plate Reinforcement  :

    Movement has developed a system using 2 pre-treated fiber gass plates of differing sizes on top of each other inserted in to the binding zones to improve the flex of the skis, but also to improve the hold of the binding itself

  • Dynamic Light Tri-Axial + Carbon  :

    This structure delivers a stiff flex and resists to torsion. It is lighter than the standard tri-axial. The addition of carbon makes the ski even more reactive.

  • MLTech Construction  :

    Monocoque construction.

  • VA-TECH  :

    The VATECH system is a layer of vibration-dampening rubber inserted under the binding, for better edge grip and a smoother ride. The NOSE VATECH system replaces the ABS plate on skis with a tip wider than 135 mm. This rubber layer smoothes the ride and dampens vibration of extra-wide tips.

  • 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  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.


  • Twin Rocker  : La hauteur et la longueur moyenne de la spatule et du talon sont augmentée, se qui permet au ski de pivoter plus facilement et procure une portance et une maniabilité optimales en poudreuse. Le ski conserve une bonne zone de contact des carres sur neige, avec du cambre au milieu du ski, pour plus de stabilité et une meilleure accroche.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.


  • P-Tex base 4000 1.3mm  :

    High density base for a better performance and a longer lasting base.
