Technical info:
The X Bond is even lighter than the Movement Bond, and only weighs about one kilo. The measurements are the same as before, with quite a lot of taper and a narrow front ski. The radius is very short, and the bindings on the test ski were mounted slightly behind the setback to make it less aggressive in the turns. Medium flex, soft tips. Movement has therefore avoided the stiff tips that usually characterizes carbon reinforced skis.

On snow:
Movement´s use of compost materials should be carefully studied by their competitors; Bond has lost some weight but is just as effective. It is very effective down the groomed slopes and easy to maneuver in varying snow conditions. After a 1500 meter powder descent though, we were admittedly weary of its will to turn. Low weight does affect stability. But X Bond is an impressive piece of craftsmanship, which is in a league of its own when it comes to surface area per weight unit.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
