The Women’s version of the Alp Tracks 84 uses a slightly different mix of carbon fibers to adapt the flex to female skiers. Not quite as stiff, the ski is still light, damp, and reliable. Movement’s most advanced construction process is labor intensive, involving special squeezing steps to get the skis so light and robust. This ski is made in a limited edition run that top female athletes and true skiing enthusiasts will enjoy. The Women’s 84 has ABS sidewalls that absorb shock, rubber in the tips to absorb vibration, and a price that will absorb your money. Worth every penny though, as this ski line is tops on the weight-to-performance scale. Fly uphill and down with the Movement Alp Tracks 84 Women’s ski.
Varying-thickness Tour Edges are thicker underfoot for impact resistance.
VA-Tech Fiberglass & rubber layer in the tip reduces vibration at speed.
Double Plate Reinforced binding area is backcountry confidence inspiring.
Mini ABS sidewall underfoot absorbs impact and improves edge hold.
Base material is impact-resistant P-Tex 5000, polished for a smooth glide.
Forest management certifications obtained with the Karuba wood cores.
Update 2017/18: The skis get a graphics makeover but otherwise remain the same.
Hello from Canada, i spoke with someone earlier today on the phone. Very pleasant and informative thanks. i am definitely taking my time with my research. It can be a bit overwhelming as so many choices and so many opinions. Over the last 25 yrs i have had a few backcountry skis. First was a super old set up with Silveretta bindings, next 2 were telemark, most recent the Kastle 98 with Daimir scout frame binding. The latest mainly used at resort and out of bounds powder seeking missions. As i had mentioned i am now ready for something lighter and ready to try the pin bindings. I am thinking in the mid 80's width. A few options i have looked at are Trab Altiva, Elan Ibex 84, Fisher Transalp 84, Blizzard zerog85, Dynafit Tour, and Movement (i think Alp Tracks). A ski for my day missions getting up mountains here on the island...super tight terrain through trees, sometimes carrying skis at the same time would also be nice if this can cross over for some multi day tours. My question at this time is typically what are you recommending for length for someone like myself with a height of around 5ft 4in? My Kastles are 168cm and they are too long for the steep uphill switchback turns.
Christine, We will continue to help on your Quest. A ski in the 160cm range should be perfect. Not only to make all those kickturns, but need a very quick turning ski too. Look at the Movement Alp tracks 85, we have it in a 161cm. It is the newer womans model which has a new more advanced 5 axis carbon layup. You should also look at the Atomic Backland UL 85.
my wife likes really flexy skis, she currently is on the movement balance. does this have more forgiving flex? shes also looking at the womens ultra vector. or do you have anything else in mind? she wants something in the mid 150 cm range
Hi Anthony, I would say that the flex and performance of the Alp Tracks 84 is definitely more forgiving than the Balance. I don't think you could go wrong with this ski, especially for the weight vs the Ultra Vector.
