Swiss brand Movement (“the freeski company”) makes a full line of skis that include narrow carvers all the way up to powder fatties, and the 125-mm Fly Swatter is the fattest of the brand’s entire collection. It’s an example of a fat ski with underfoot camber and relatively tight turn radius (17m), a concept that seems to be gaining ground among modern ski designers. Massive rocker in tip and tail are intended to help it float easily in deep snow. It’s designed to be a versatile, playful, backcountry freestyler. It has a poplar core with fiber layers above and below, as well as rubber inserts intended to damp vibrations.
