The brand new for 2015-16 winter season Movement Player replaces the Jam, always a popular all mountain ski and one of the company's best sellers - so why replace it?
Well presumably to create something better, and the Player certainly performs well, although we'd need more time with it to be definitive about whether we think it exceeds the Jam's well-established performance.
The Player is 1mm wider underfoot than the Jam but has more sidecut, whilst retaining a good level of torsional stiffness, a combination that gives very good edge hold on harder snow whilst allowing it to handle powder with some aplomb.
It also gave a very smooth ride, and we especially enjoyed the Player in hard, long radius turns when it simply refused to do anything other than stay on the rail and carve.
This versatility is one of the most appealing aspects of this ski - we felt equally at home on or off-piste with it, and with solid application by the rider it will also handle tracked out terrain as well.
Add to that some cool graphics and a not unreasonable price and it makes a good successor to the Jam.
Like its predecessor, the Player will surely be a popular choice amongst seasonaires who like to mix it between piste and powder and who want something they can be proud to leave outside the bar after a hard days skiing.
