Technical info:
Camox is made at Movement´s factory in Tunisia. The low tip doesn´t have any bend and the rocker goes all the way out. This is where it differs the most from Atris. It makes the tip very low and the angle extremely acute. Otherwise, the construction is much heavier, so despite being much a smaller ski, it weighs quite a lot. It has a soft tip and an even sidecut radius.

On snow:
Unlike Atris, Camox failed to convince the test team. They are heavy and difficult to maneuver. The stability and the properties at speed get the best accolades, and when put to the test it can handle the pressure. But it is not as playful as the best skis in the test. If you want a slightly narrower ski that also works in powder, it´s still an option to consider.
