Technical info:
Shift is a little heavier than the previous two models from Movement. Wood, carbon fibre and fibreglass has pressed together in order to give strength, without compromising on weight. The waist is a little wider and the sidecut radius a little longer, but it is still short. Movement Shift has some rocker in the front and none in the back ski. A little stiff in the back.

On snow:
Shift is better and more robust than the other two piste skis from Movement. 300 grams and a little extra width helps. It floats very well in powder and it has a playful touch to it. It´s got bite on hard snow as well. However, this comes at a price in terms of maneuverability. It flutters and is less stable at speed compared with some of the other skis in the test. We think that Movement could have made a better ski by extending the sidecut. By all means, Shift will perform well in the ascents as well as downhill.
