Technical info:
Movement Response is an extremely light carbonfibre cap ski. Although a little wider, it reminds us of Bond, a previous test winner. The skis have very short sidecut radius, taper and short rocker in the front and no rocker in the back ski. Skis that are as light as this pose the question of how much they can take. Movement has saved weight on basically everything: Core, glue, edges and reinforced fibres.

On snow:
The Response is a super light model which works best on soft snow. The float is just as good as the rocker shape promises. It performs well in the turns, but compared to a lot of other skis in the test, we miss the solid edge grip on hard snow. Something has to go when making a ski like this, because the weight vs surface area is just phenomenal. We can only congratulate Movement on yet another well functioning weight winner.
