The new Gold Fish, aka perfect weapon. Known for producing some of the highest-performing skis atop the surface-area-to-weight charts, Movement has endeared themselves to skiers who demand premium gear. As the name would suggest, the Race Pro 71 is 71mm wide underfoot and represents the middlest ski within Movement’s Race Pro lineup, right between the 66 and 77. Wider than most race skis, narrower than most mountaineering skis, the Race Pro 71 is an objective-seeking missile designed to get you there and back in record time. And since it’s available in lengths that give an advantage on the way down, you’ll get there with an even bigger smile on your face. With a top-secret core that lets the 168cm length weigh in at a shockingly low number, you basically have a race ski underneath you on the way up. But the extra girth and tip rocker will quickly remind you that this doesn’t handle like a typical race ski on the way down. The tip notch accepts bungee-style race attachments for the fastest transitions in case you want to go back for more and have no time to waste. The Race Pro 71 is the gram-counters adventure ski, powder ski, and mountaineering ski, or the everyday tourer’s race ski or objective ski. Either way, it’s fun, well-engineered, and should become your ski.
Update 2018/29: Topsheet has very slightly changed graphic, otherwise the ski is the same.
Update 2019/20: Movement got in touch with their artistic side and updated the topsheet graphic, otherwise these remain the same.
