They say

The Z-Line is the new benchmark ski in the Movement girls range and is aimed at the sporty female skier who loves to carve up the groomers. It’s based around a wood core with glass/carbon fibre reinforcement.

We say

The character of the Shine feels quite different to the majority of skis that we tested in this category. The key Difference is that it has quite a stiff flex which gives it the power to be reactive and responsive, particularly in short turns. Although the flex feels punchy, it’s actually a fun, playful ski that will feel accessible to all levels of skiers. They feel at their best in short turns, where they have good grip and plenty of response. In long turns the grip is still strong but the flex starts to feel a bit more inconsistent, with high edge angles it can give way, while on lower edge angles it doesn’t feel so easy to release the edge into the new turn.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Carbon weave makes this ski feel stiff and strong despite the short length we had on test
Steph Ede
Quite versatile and forgiving in short turns, light and playful, but gives you a lot back
