We’ve heard it described as the perfect ski. We think that may not be an overstatement for a certain class of skier. We’re not sure if this is a race ski you can tour on, or a touring ski you can race on, but we do know it is uniquely amazing. It could be perfect for bigger or more aggressive racers. It could be perfect for skiers seeking powder in faraway places. Lighter than many race skis, more floaty than many touring skis, the Gold Fish-X from Movement could be perfect for you.

  • 830 gram (1lb 13.2oz) weight in the 168 lets you fly uphill.
  • Light rocker tip and 71mm of underfoot width add significant confidence on the down.
  • Cool fish tip has an eyeball and mouth that hungers for a race-style bungee (or rubber) skin tip.
  • Light Karuba wood core is reinforced with a poplar composite.
  • Uses patented North TPT technology that weaves tri-axial carbon fiber onto the core.
  • Top of the line P-Tex 5000 covers the bases for top of the line performance.

Question from Coloradodonnie
Looking at the Movement GoldFish, Hagan Cirrus, and Atomic Ultimate 78.

Question is:
I currently race and train on the dynafit pdg almost everyday in the winter, but living on a resort with access to side/back country tours in the morning and evening I want something to keep me fast on the uphill but something that I can grab almost any day under almost any condition that will a bit more fun then the pdg's..., what do you think?. I will be using my scarpa aliens, and not sure on bindings but open to thoughts on that as well. Thanks you for your help!
Answer from jbo
Hi Coloradodonnie, yes the extra length of the Gold Fish and light touring skis can offer a noticeable improvement in ski-ability, since race skis are often too short for folks. Send us an e-mail with your info and we can give a personalized recommendation. Easiest to use the binding finder and mention the skis as well.

I've used these for about a month now, so I feel I can finally give an objective review. I use the Golds with the Hagan ZR/Dyna PDG boot. I'm 6' 170 lbs, and I was tired, literally, of skiing in the backseat so much with race skis. The CROWBAR race the last 2 years comes to mind. Back seat skiing is inevitable on race skis, but I feel like I can stand up a little more on these, and my quads appreciate that--I definitely can notice the added width and rocker on the Gold. They have a shorter radius than many of the other race skis which could good or bad depending on your view, but I really like the way they carve and are pretty nimble. I like how easy they are to turn, but are also stable at speeds as fast as I dare to ski.

They are a little heavier when mounted than my other race skis (45 grams), which gave me some pause before I bought them, but the difference between 885 grams and 840 grams is really hard to notice. It's less than the weight of a pack of skittles, so close enough for me, and I get the added benefit of a bigger ski to descend on.

I would definitely buy them again, and skimo.co had them mounted and ready to go really quickly.

I've skied this pair about 15,000 vertical feet touring and about 5,000 vertical feet on steeps in the resort. I am amazed with it's performance in variable conditions - hardpack, powder, crud, and windblown. I am using it in the Front Range of Colorado during this above average snow year and have really loved it in everything I've tried (I have not used it on any serious icy conditions). It is a serious upgrade from my Manaslu/Vertical TLT setup on the way up, what an amazing difference in efficiency, and it performs very competently in powder for how skinny and light it is.

I have the Hagan ZR binding, Dynafit PDG boot, and Pomoca ProGlide skins that I use with these skis. Jason at skimo.co was an amazing wealth of knowledge in helping me decide on this setup, provided wonderful customer service, and dialed in a precise mount.

One ski to rule them all? Well... not really, but it ain't far off! This is the race ski that has changed my mind about race skis! I'd long been a die hard skitrabber (committed to the cause) but became acquainted with Movement skis last winter at a European Worldcup Race and was immediately pleased with the quality of their goods - seemingly a little ahead of the rest of the market. The Goldfish-X totally delivers in a small niche for a rando race ski that could also hold its own not only in the uphill, but on the downhill too. Most of the skis in the 600g category are pretty sketchy in the reckless downhill madness of rando racing, but the added surface area and touch of rocker (only at the cost of 200g) makes a monumental difference. I feel confident skiing at speed in a wide range of conditions with these babies. Sure their no Lotus 138 on a powder day, but they get the job done from ice to deep. Where as I used have two dedicated setups (one racing and one touring) I am finding this quickly obsolete. I have almost exclusively ridden the Goldfish-X this winter (from racing to technical ski mountaineering) and don't see it changing soon. Goes perfect with the Scarpa Alien 1.0 boots!
