Description

Rip up any mountain with this young giant underfoot.

Running in the massive footsteps of its big brother, the Goliath, the Movement Goliath Sluff offers slightly less surface area, but a ton of added maneuverability. Where the 191cm Goliath is an Alaskan spine slasher, the Goliath Sluff is your all-mountain surgeon. Added sidecut offers a more nimble and precise ride for quick turns on the steeps and the Sluff is one of the most stable and surefooted skis available at this weight. Its ability to thread through tight spaces makes any of the steepest tree lines your own personal playground. A rounded tail allows you to release turns and dump speed, while a 99mm waist and perfectly round flex provides float in powder and Kreskin-like predictability on steep faces.

I am skiing thr 05 B3 Rosi in 178 CM . It is a great, all mt. ski, good In pow and not bad in on the groomed. I am looking for a new ride.
I like a ski that is well built, top edge doesn't fall apart. I am 5' 11 " and 150 Lbs. I am very agressive at 72. I love the off piest, crud and pow. What leangth should I be lookong at. Is the sluff the right board for me?

It is a pretty sick ski. You could probably go for the slightly shorter than you ski length of this, seeing as it's wider and will float more, which is all you need. The Goliath Sluff should perform up to snuff for you, top-sheet holds well and they seem to know what they are doing.

Is there an equivalent for us girls?

My new BC tele board

This is my new board for BC use (and some powder days at the resorts). When demoed in a 184 I found it to pretty much ignore funky wind blown snow and wind crust. The turned up tip plowed over most things and resurfaced when it it went under. It was a blast in the soft. It is stiff enough to go far out on edge at speed on harder groomers. The ski was turny enough to be fun in trees and run double black moguls at the resort for half a day. This does not ski like a tele ski. It has most of the edge hold of and alpine board but is missing some of the dampness. Forgiving of snow conditions. Needs to be driven on the down. The 184 does not ski as long as it sounds.

Fun for the BC.

What width skins would you recommend for these?

Responded on

You want to buy skins that fit the widest point of your ski, and then trim down to size. Therefore, the Black Diamond STS in 140mm would be best. The 130mm would work also, but the 140mm would be ideal.^^^ I disagree. The edges on most skis are about 2mm wide each. So, 130mm skins would be perfect (134mm - 2X2mm = 130mm). Buying 140mm skins would be a waste of money and skin material.^^^Definitely go with the 130mm, you wouldn't want to buy skins that are wider than your tips...G3 also makes awesome skins.

Hi. Based on the product description, the Goliath Sluff sounds like the sort of ski I'm looking for. I want something for my trips out west that will handle the powder but will also be quick in the trees when the bowls get skied out. My question: what's its performance like on firmer snow? Most of my skiing is done off-piste at resorts like Alta, Snowbird and Jackson, but I still ski the occasional groomer. Does the Goliath Sluff reflect an AT heritage that might be reflected in its performance on harder packed surfaces? Thanks for any help. Steve

I bought this ski (Goliath 184 cm - same as this year's Sluff) late last Winter as a pow and deep stuff quiver ski. I ski mostly in the PNW, Mt Hood Meadows and Crystal plus I spend allot of time down at Mammoth and some days in Tahoe. I have ridden several Movement skis the Freeheel (two variants) and the Thunder. All wonderful skis. By season's end this (Goliath) was the main ski I was riding. Surprisingly quite good on the hard stuff. Last April I skied 4-days at Mammoth mostly doing all the stuff off Chair 23 and 9. Started out hard ice and would progress to corn and crud on the same run. These skis did really well and were the only skis I used for everything. Wonderful snappy, all-mountain ski. Completely changed my idea what a big ski in length and profile can do and how versatile they could be. Skied them last year mounted tele with BD 01/Ridstiffs. This season I am going to use telemark NTN bindings. If the 174 cm was available last season (it wasn't) I would have gotten them--mostly to save some ounces for touring. Still I have found the 184's skis surprisingly short when you need them to be and they ski long and stable when you feel the need to roll.
