The Race Pro is Movement’s podium contender that combines the race-pedigree of the former Rise-X Pro ski with the performance and handling capabilities of the trusted Fish-X series. Using the patented North TPT wrapping process, the Swiss engineers introduced a carbon fiber weave around the core to improve power transfer and edging on icy skin tracks. The mounting template has been reinforced with Titanal to create a strong yet lightweight ski capable of handling just about anything you are. Movement has found the perfect balance between a traditional shape and new-school performance.

  • North TPT lamination wraps the core in tri-axial carbon fibers for speed, speed, and more speed.
  • A Karuba Paulownia core keeps things light while Poplar is added for extra strength.
  • 1.3mm of P-Tex 5000 on the base gives a race glide and impact resistance at a low weight.
  • Classic tip notch accepts bungee-style race skins for the fastest transition times.

Update 2018/19 - Topsheet has a graphics update, otherwise the skis are unchanged.

Question from Aljaz
 
Has anyone skied this ski or have some experience with them (reliability, durability, etc.)? I have an opportunity to get them through my club at club price so I'm seriously thinking about it. Thanks in advance.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Aljaz! They are very fun skis! True to almost all Movement skis, they like to go fast and are pretty impressively durable, especially for how light they are. I'd highly recommend them.

Question from Mark Hauter
 
Hello,

I am looking at your racing ski line up and am not sure about the short skis of today. The last time I was on a 160 I was 12, I am now 54. I ski fast, lots of BC and racing background and am now interested in competing in these types of races. I would like to have a ski that will carry me at speed on hard snow for racing but honestly cant believe a tiny short ski could do that without becoming unstable. My weight hovers around 165 and am 6 foot.

All this said I realize the up hill advantage of the tiny skis- how many races are won on the downhill in your experience?

Thanks,
Mark Hauter-

Answer from Nate
 
Hi Mark, I hear your concern. As you can imagine, this is a frequent conversation that we have with folks who are new to the sport. There are a dozen ways to answer this so I'll do my best.

Firstly, I'd point out that competitive slalom racers are frequently on skis of similar length so going short is not that alien of a concept, even in the alpine skiing realm.

The key is pairing your ski+boot+binding combo up appropriately so that you are not over driving the setup with too heavy of a boot. To get the best performance out of a race ski, it's ideally paired with a matching lightweight race boot. When this is done, they deliver quite admirable performance. I've noted from my GPS files this season that I frequently was in excess of 50+mph when doing fitness laps and 40+mph on un-groomed terrain in races on my little race skis.

With all this being said, it takes a little bit of getting used to and perhaps minor adjustments to your skiing technique. They will never feel like an alpine ski, but confidence in their performance is easily attained.

To answer your last question, time in races is generally 80% or more spent on the uphill. Similar to bicycle racing, it's rare that a race is won on the downhill. The top performers in today's skimo races are flying uphill and straightlining the descents.

Hey Mark. I might also add that if you're used to racing and ripping around on skinny skis you'll likely do really well on these skis. Like Nate said there's definitely an adjustment to your skiing technique but clocking 60+ in the resort is absolutely doable once you get the hang of it. Also, this is just an observation of mine from working here and also doing a lot of racing that the majority of the guys racing on these skis are very similar to your dimensions. Race skis are a ton of fun though. It's amazing how much ground you can cover on them and once you get the hang of skiing them your definition of what skis can and can't be applicable in the backcountry will definitely change for the lighter.
