Technical info:
"Control 98 from the Swiss brand Movement is a light and somewhat retro construction, but this doesn´t have to be negative. It´s a light full cap construction. Long sidecut and long gliding area. No rocker nor taper in the back ski. It has moderate rocker in front and not that much taper. Long setback (18 cm) and the mounting point is quite far at the back. Even flex and the ski is softer than average in this category.

On snow:
Movement Control is light and is probably best suited for the ascent. The long gliding surface gives good skin grip and the weight is low. On the descent it feels nervous, and it is definitely best on easier surfaces. It is more difficult to control at high speed and on uneven, varied surfaces, and some extra effort is required to enter the turn. But it is fun to turn on gentler slopes with good snow. Movement Control 98 is the ski for those who want a light and traditional touring ski.
