BOULDER, CO - Dominating the field at Skiing Magazine’s “Indy” test last spring, Movement Skis racked up a pair of awards from one of America’s most respected ski journals. Skiing’s “Indy Test” was held in Aspen, Colorado during the first week of April. The unique format of the test requested each brand to submit their best one-ski quiver- a ski that can do it all and do it every day, regardless of the conditions.
Movement’s do-everything JAM topped the podium with a Tester’s Choice Award, while their versatile and popular SLUFF was praised with an Official Selection designation. Both skis will be profiled in the magazine’s November 2011 issue.
“Winning two awards from Skiing Magazine is a huge testament to the depth and quality of the 2012 Movement line,” said Jonathan Degenhardt, brand manager for Movement Skis.
The JAM (MSRP $779) is a powerful and dynamic ski that is aimed at bigger and more aggressive skiers looking for all-around performance on both piste and in powder. Armed with lots of sidecut and a firm flex, the JAM goes all over the mountain while remaining super-stable at high speed. With a shapely sidecut of 136 – 85 – 117 mm, the JAM is available in 164, 173, 182 cm.
The SLUFF (MSRP: $859) is one of Movement’s most popular skis for skiers who want a quiver of one. The new construction for 11/12 makes the SLUFF more versatile than ever. The SLUFF behaves precisely and predictably at high speed, particularly in difficult conditions and is the perfect tool for technical descents. The Sluff is available in 174 and 184 cm lengths with a profile of 134-99-118 mm.
“The indy-brand scene has exploded, and we’ve had to come up with a new way to accommodate testing and coverage,” said Skiing’s test editors. “The Indy Test (is) an audition of sorts, and it’s our intention that the ‘best’ brands, based on this year’s results, will be invited to the mainstream test next year.”
Movement’s superior reputation for distinctive and dynamic skis derives from their proprietary Control Torsion System (CTS) ski construction technology, which blends torsional stiffness with round longitudinal flex to maximize performance and enjoyment in every snow condition. Like all Movement Skis, the Trust features pure wood ski core construction, certified sustainable by FSC and PEFC organizations; high molecular weight bases for speed and performance; extra-thick mounting plates and rubber reinforced edges for extreme durability; exclusive high energy laminates and fibers for customized performance; and unique shock absorption technologies for a smooth and perfect ride, every time.
