Movement’s Alp Tracks line has been the go-to for skiers that want a high-performance ski at a silly lightweight. Now available in the “goldilocks” size, the Alp Tracks 89 is Movement’s way of contending for a one-ski-quiver. With enough tip rocker to downgrade challenging conditions into simply “conditions,” the Alp Tracks 89 floats well above what its waist width would indicate. Even though it has plenty of soft snow prowess, it is even better when it comes to steep or icy terrain as the stiff camber keeps your edges in control. Light enough and precise enough to handle even the most technical skin-tracks, the Alp Tracks 89 incorporates an ABS Micro-Sidewall underfoot to reduce chatter, increase edge hold, and improve impact resistance when things don’t quite go according to plan. Once the usable edge length has done an excellent job carving, the tail quickly tapers and turns up slightly. This helps you release smoothly from turns, aids in inserting the skis into a ski-carry loop, makes skiing crust slightly easier, and quickly gets out of the way during jump turns. If Goldilocks was looking for a ski that could do a lot of everything, we’d recommend she get the Movement Alp Tracks 89.
- Ultralight Karuba wood core and carbon weave ensure maximum liveliness and power.
- ABS-Sidewall underfoot promotes heavy-hitter capabilities in one of the lightest skis in category.
- Rando Edge is more durable than a race edge, but lighter than an alpine edge.
- P-Tex 5000 base is fast, fast, fast, just like the ski.
- Mostly hand-made for extra cool points.
