Technical info:
Vertex is the widest ski in this category, and it is supposed to be among the most versatile touring models from Swiss Movement. This fairly light semicap carbon fibre construction has a lot of sidecut combined with a somewhat short sidecut. A lot of camber in the front ski, medium flex curve and a soft tip. The setback is shorter than the mounting length, which means that you stand behind the narrowest point on the ski.

On snow:
The test team is divided about this model, but they all agree that it is a little heavy in the turns, especially at low speed. It tends to understeer going into the turn. This is due to the combination of back mounted bindings and a lot of sidecut. At the same time, two out of three test riders like how it performs off piste and the stability at speed. Movement Vertex suits the freerider who wants a light and relatively small touring ski.
