Technical info:
Movement from Switzerland have made their mark in recent years with lightweight touring skis. Magnet resembles a scaled up version of Bond, with a bit of rocker and more pronounced taper in front. The flex is soft in the front and otherwise average. The radius is very small, and the binding is mounted a bit further back than the setback. Its weight is among the lowest in terms of surface area.

On snow:
Movement have certainly done something right with their ski touring series. Strictly speaking, the sidecut is a little too short for our taste, but we can't help but be charmed by how effective Magnet is in the turns. This is the best piste ski in the test and despite its weight, it is both responsive and powerful. The rocker and the narrow tips give good float and stability in powder, although we notice that there is a lot of sidecut. All in all a great touring ski, especially in spring.
