Movement Buzz - Winter 2015/16 Freeride Ski

The Movement Buzz has walked away with a number of magazine awards for being one of the most accessible freeride skis on the market. This mid-fat ski is notable for it's relatively short side-cut and maneuverability.

There's no need to have legs of steel to make the most of this ski—it drives into the turn effortlessly whatever the terrain and carves fluidly. In the deeper stuff, the 99mm underfoot width comes into its own, while the feather-light (sub 4 lbs) makes this ski one of the lightest models available on the market in this category.


EPL Wood Core: The EPL (Ecological Light Poplar) wood core uses less glue in its construction than other wood cores on the market.


CTS Performance Construction: The Control Torsion System is Movement’s process to link the base and cap of the ski to the tip and tail in order to stiffen the torsion of the ski.

P-TEX 4000: The P-TECH 4000 base the “motor” that drives this ski. For this reason, Movement only uses top-of-the-range synthetic bases with very high molecular density. This type of base is highly resistant to abrasion and impacts while remaining serviceable. The P-TEX 4000 is factory-prepared with a lightly structured finish and hot wax to make the ski ready to use straight off the shelf. The finishing itself is done with the latest Montana and Wintersteiger machines.

VA-Tech: The VA-Tech vibration absorber is a natural rubber plate placed towards the tip of the ski in order to absorb vibrations.


Twin Rocker Profile: The Twin Rocker Profile delivers an exaggerated length and height of rocker on both tip and tail that allows the ski to pivot easily and float effortlessly in powder. The ski still has a good contact zone in the center with plenty of edge to keep grip and maintain stability at speed.


Top Sheet: Movement skis are built with top sheets that meet the industry standard (ICP 8210) that guarantees the best quality out there. The upper layer of the top-sheet is a highly resistant polyamide, which is made up of two thermally bonded layers. The top sheet then has an anti-UV treatment and anti-stick coating (to repel snow - particularly important in the touring range).

Rubber Structure: All of the vulnerable areas of the ski (edges, tip and tail) are reinforced with a waterproof rubber layer that protects from shocks and seals the ski. These layers also serve to absorb vibrations and stop the infiltration of water into the ski’s core, which can cause delamination and eventually the destruction of the ski.

ABS: The ABS sections (a synthetic material with fiberglass particles) act as shock absorbers when skiing on hard snow or ice.

More about Movement: Movement sees the mountain as one big playground - ski touring opens up new terrain and skiing areas that simply aren’t accessible from the lifts, which is why this area of the market is growing fast. Movement has focused on reducing the weight of the skis by developing different wood core combinations and fiber constructions, while maintaining the goal of creating a high-performance ski that is also durable and fun to ride. They also brought in new shapes and Rocker outlines to this range to make them even more exciting during the descent.
