A feminine advanced to expert all-rounder, the Black Rose has sweet graphics shrouding a purposeful core and strong sidecut for some rapid freeskiing. The 22-23 m radius is one for the experts rather than the advanced skiers and resembles something more akin to a GS race ski in terms of its turning dimensions- but this is going to give the experienced skier a feeling of stability and edge hold at speed on some pretty tough snow, on-piste or off. As expected you get a blend of woods for the core for a tailor-made flex especially for girls, its going to be punchy, light and strong.
With a pretty hefty minimum of 88 mm underfoot you can ski everywhere on this ski but the focus is going to be pretty much rapid freeriding and some fast high-speed carving racing over the groomers to the next patch of powder.
The manufacturer says this about the Movement Black Rose 2008:
It is a given that Movement would present a true large freeride ski perfectly adapted to women’s morphology. For women who regularly outski their male counterparts. Our idea was to combine the best materials with a geometry that is good to excellent in every snow condition. We designed a very light ski with the same construction features used in the development of the Thunder. It is the ideal ski for expert women skiers who want a powerful ski which skis powder and crud as easily as it carves compact and hard snow. This is THE women’s performance freeride ski.
