The Alp Tracks 85 is Movement's specialty tool for the ever-changing game of ski-mountaineering. The ski is designed for those longer, steeper, and faster missions. Every Alp Tracks ski is handmade using an advanced carbon/karuba layup to keep the weight low while optimizing ski performance and control. The core construction combined with an ABS sidewall and Movement’s Race-Edge gives that extra bit of confidence for the next steep line. But be warned: even though Alp Tracks 85 is a spring dream, you may find yourself forgetting that you own other skis as the 85 is equally entertaining for early season scouting and midwinter dawn patrols.
- ASA (ABS Shock Absorber) is situated underfoot to create a smoother and more controlled ride.
- 5-Axis Carbon weave layup with an extra 100% carbon unidirectional carbon layup on the top and bottom of the ski provide torsional rigidity and strength without compromising on weight.
- VA-Tech rubber + fiberglass layer absorbs vibration in the tip of the ski.
- Ultralight Karuba wood core is selected from sustainably managed sources certified by FSC & PEFC.
- Sintered P-Tex 5000 bases are Movement's strongest and most durable for extra longevity.
- Movement's DPR-Ti (Double Plate Reinforcement) provide a solid binding anchor.
- Race-Edge design puts more edge where it is needed and drops weight where it isn't.

Questions & Reviews
I have a heavier setup for sidecountry and powder (Aramada Tracer 108s at 188 cm length) that I love. I've just never skied on anything so short.
A 177 ski should be just fine. I'm 6'0" and 180lbs and 177 is my go-to length, though I ski down to 170. Especially for fast and light trips and mountaineering, a shorter ski will be lighter and conserve energy while also making kick turns and navigating narrow couloirs easier.
