Movement Race Pro 66 Ski - 2020/21


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 can. 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.

*Note: The 150cm length offers a softer flex for lighter-weight skiers.

Update 2019/20: Movement got in touch with their artistic side and redesigned the topsheet graphic, otherwise they remain the same.

Update 2021/22: Movement reworked the shovel and the new version is available here.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Baptiste
hello, I am currently looking for my new racing skis. I hesitate between this model, the Movement race pro 66 and the Trab Gara aero skis. I would like to know your opinion on the comparison of the two skis, as well as your opinion on the durability/solidity of the two skis. thank you in advance, and thank you for all the valuable comments read on each article of the site it is really nice to have qualitative feedback
Answer from Jeff
Baptiste, As all Race skis are aiming for the lowest weight, they ski fairly similar.
Both the Movement and Ski Trab are great choices and some of Skimos favorite Brands. But when the question goes to durability and being damp and Lightweight, all the Ski Trab skis win there.

Seeking to boost my race ski quiver I got these fall '20; not being sure if we'd have a race season or not (looks like not) I knew in any case I needed some motivation to train. These great lookin' skis fit the bill nicely. As advertised, their unique carbon fiber wrap process makes for a very firm grip in icy conditions, yet they still seem to retain a nice suppleness for skiing softer powder. Skinny race boards don't give you the float for powder, but the more you ski on this size of ski, the more used to it you get. Their weight comes in on the lighter side for race skis. Overall I'm pretty happy with these.

Finally, I'd like to give a review to As someone that's been doing skimo racing since 2007 I gotta say you newer racers don't know how good you have it. In those early days we didn't have a clue...we'd scour Youtube vids trying to figure out what gear to get and how to use it. Then we'd have to order from Europe. We'd get killed by the strong Euro and there was a lot of guess work involved. Skimo makes it so easy for us in NA now. Their stats info is so good that so many use it whether or not they purchase from SM. SM's selection kills the Euro options anyway and prices are great. Let's support them b/c they really support our community (sermon over...thanks).

Thanks for the shout out, Steve! Always great to hear your take on race gear, since as you point out, you've been doing it as long as any of us!

Question from Aaron O
Comparing these skis with the Zero G Race (which I really like), do these ski a bit easier? Looking for something for my wife - she loved her old Dynafit PDGs (gray ones), does not like the Atomic UL 65s, and is somewhat liking the Zero Gs. I am inclined to just get one more pair of Zero Gs but these looked really nice when I saw them last season in the person. How are these vs the Zero G?
Answer from TSB
Hey Aaron, hmm, that's an interesting question/comparison! The Zero G Attack is probably the most old-school, aggressive race ski on the market, making it a demanding ski but also powerful and able to bulldoze through the crud. The only connection I can think of between the ZG Attack and the old PDG ski is that they both feature the wider, squared-off tip which gives them additional stability and float in variable conditions, and allows the skier to stay in the front seat when other skis would push you into the back seat. If you want to replicate that kind of stability it's hard to overlook the Aski Stealth, which wins the award for "race ski that feels most like a piste rocket." To get back to your original question, the Race Pro 66 is definitely an easier-skiing ski than the Zero G Attack, and much more maneuverable/quicker-turning than the other skis we've talked about. It doesn't quite have that high-speed stability that it sounds like your wife is looking for, though, unless you're used to skiing thousands of vertical feet in the back seat!

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

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?

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.
Answer from Trace Leches
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.
Answer from Gregor K
50-60mph?!! I’m missing a couple of body parts and confidence to attain that speed.
