A Swiss snow giant with a firm hand and a light heart.
If you head out of bounds seeking big lines and deep snow, the Movement Goliath should be in your quiver. This Swiss-made “touring” ski’s combination of huge size, smooth flexing stability, and surprisingly light weight caused testers to scratch their heads for a few years, until Backcountry Magazine finally gave up and named it an Editor’s Choice. Throw some burly AT bindings on it (think Marker Duke or Fritschi Freeride at the least) and the Goliath will not only send anything in sight, but skin back up for a second shot without destroying your legs. Arriving for 2008/09 in just one length, the 191cm Goliath is for making huge arcs on open faces and moving quickly and predictably in exposed, high-consequence terrain. Smaller AT riders and those willing to sacrifice some mach-speed tracking for increased tight-spot maneuverability should take a good look at the Goliath’s younger brother, the Goliath Sluff.
What bindings would work best on the Movement Goliath and should they be mounted in the normal place? I am 6'3" 195lbs and ski at a din of 11-12. I tend to to load a ski and ski aggressively but no air.(who does not say that they ski aggressively. Has anyone ever bought this type of ski and said; yeah I ski like a wuss.).
