With the Alp Tracks line, Movement has levelled up in their quest for the perfect lightweight backcountry skis. Using a labor-intensive carbon fiber construction process, the Swiss company has managed to make skis much wider than their previously top-end X-series designs, which topped out at 89mm underfoot. The AlpTracks build process uses the highest quality carbon fiber arranged in a clever, multidirectional manner around a light wood core. They further strengthened the skis with mini-sidewalls underfoot to make them relatively damp and resistant to rock damage. The Alp Tracks 106 is the ultimate wide, lightweight ski for blasting powder and ripping in variable conditions. Truly a ski to behold. And ski.
ABS Shock Absorber is a mini-sidewall underfoot that dampens the ride.
Tour Edges are variable thickness, adding material in key impact zones.
VA-Tech vibration absorber is a rubber-infused fiberglass in the ski tips.
Shaped with a rockered tip and friendly sidecut amenable to skiing fast.
Double Plate Reinforcement is two integrated layers for binding strength.
P-Tex 5000 bases are hard to resist rocks and fast to resist spring snow.
Hi, I plan to put some inserts into my AlpTracks 106 skis (and want to do a good job!). I've installed inserts in before in other skis, but was just wondering if anyone had any comments/tips/warnings about doing it in the AlpTracks. I haven't installed them in carbon topsheet skis before, and the AlpTracks may have slightly unique construction, so I was wondering if there were any differences to consider. Thanks in advance.
No differences to consider when installing inserts in these skis. Business as usual!
Hi Igor, there is no difference. Much of the Movement marketing material refers to LTD, but the skis themselves were imprinted with LT. They've actually dropped both from the skis for 17/18, and also from the marketing materials for 18/19. But the fact remains that all the Alp Tracks are handmade, Limited Edition skis.
