As the successor to the Big Fish, The Race Pro 77 is the girthiest option in Movement’s Race Pro lineup, yet still has a head-scratchingly low weight. The Race Pro 77 is a full-blown mountaineering, corn-hunting, couloir-skiing tool that weighs less than some race skis. Movement uses a top-secret construction (using multi-axial carbon and Karuba) that allows them to achieve a surface-area-to-weight ratio that leaves most skis dreaming. With a relatively tight sidecut, the Race Pro 77 is a confident technical skinner, which, if you’re not careful, offers enough confidence to get you into some trouble. Thank goodness that it's stable and true on the descent, so even if you get carried away, it’ll help get you out. A top-of-the-line P-Tex 5000 base is just about as high on the durometer scale as they come and will join arms with the Race Edges to stand up to rocky early and late season conditions. A welcomed bit of rocker helps the ski float well above what its waist width would suggest in soft or choppy snow. A tip notch accepts race tips so you can have the fastest transitions in the range. A gram counter’s powder ski? A mountaineer’s mainstay? A layman’s spring ski? Absolutely. Like an overweight race ski that’s graduated to higher speeds and deeper snow, the Movement Race Pro 77 is ready for more.

  • Titanal reinforced binding mounting area for durability and longevity.
  • Ultralight Karuba wood core is the method behind the madness.
  • Race Edges are necessary for precise edging in steep terrain.
  • P-Tex 5000 bases are durable and fast.

Update 2018/19: The tops of the skis will look a little different with a slightly updated graphic.

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

Update 2021/22: Movement updated the topsheet to be even more visually appealing. They also gave the shovel a different shape, which helps the ski initiate in soft snow.

Update 2022/23: Scared of idleness, the graphic designers at Movement release yet another topsheet. The ski designers were not scared and sat idle.

Update 2023/24: This model was replaced by Movement Fast 77 Ski.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Travis
I'm looking for a fitness ski that can carve a clean line and be stable up to 30-35 MPH. Lighter the better so I can get as many laps as possible. How do the Race Pro 77s compare to Zero G 85s? Open to consider other skis as well. Thanks!
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Travis,

This would be an awesome choice for the skiing you describe. The happy place for these skis is ripping groomers and shallow powder during early morning fitness laps at the resort. They are very light and carve well. The Zero G 85 would be a little heavier, more damp, and a better choice for an all-around touring or mountaineering ski. The Race Pro would be more specialized for those high-speed fitness laps.

Answer from Travis
One more question. I'm 5'10" and 160-170lbs. What length would be best for my intended purpose? 168 or 174?
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Travis,

You're right on the fence! 174 wouldn't be bad and would float a little better. However, for an uphill fitness ski, and especially if there are any racing ambitions, shorter offers less weight and easier kick turns. And 168 wouldn't be too short. For your use I would lean 168, since you're probably looking at a lot of groomer laps and fast paced uphills.

Question from Gabe
What ski length would you recommend for someone that’s five-nine?
Answer from Andrew C
Hi Gabe,

If you're racing, the shortest men are able to go is 160cm, and this is what most people do for easier kick turns, faster transitions, and less weight on the uphill. You can certainly go longer if maximizing race performance is not a concern. I think the 168cm would be a good all-rounder. You could ski a 174, but it probably isn't necessary unless you are heavier/more aggressive skier and you want more length.

Shane (used product a few times)
Just purchased these this Spring and took them for an initial quick ( 2000 vert and 5 miles ) tour in warm Sierra variable mank. They performed very well considering the challenging conditions. Im using the 160 length as these will also be used for racing . I’m used to skiing the Hagan Ultra 82 waisted ski and the Atomic 65 UL race skis so I was hoping these would be a great in between which they seem to be . I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the staff comments and other reviews about this ski being super stiff and possibly not a good choice in variable conditions but it was real good . Maybe I’m just used to skiing race skis and variable conditions but either way I love this ski . I have no worries about it on hardback or POW . Excellent customer service from SkiMo Co as well . I can’t wait to race with these next season !

Question from Josh
I'm looking for a ski to round out the bottom of my quiver. I have a fun light-ish corn ski, a fun powder ski, but not an ultralight tool. Intended use would be 50% uphill fitness laps, 50% steep couloir skiing in no-fall terrain. Is this the ticket?!
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Josh, the Movement Race Pro 77 is essentially a more versatile race ski -- the perfect light ski for fitness laps. It's stiff race-like construction will provide plenty of edge hold on the steeps, but you'll find it to be rather unforgiving in variable conditions compared to other more mountaineering oriented skis. Please feel free to reach out to if you'd like to get into more details!

Question from Dan Riley
I'm 6' 4 and 210 lbs. I'm looking for a mostly fitness ski that I can race (not competively). Would something like this be a good option or should I go skinnier?
Answer from Ian C
Hey Dan, this ski and/or the Race Pro 71 sound like they would be perfect for you! They carve super well at speed and are extremely lightweight, yet come in longer lengths with just a bit more width for bigger skiers who might fold a true 65mm/160cm race ski.

Question from Tristan N
Hi folks how would this compare to the Trab Maestro2. I'm looking for a specialty ski for steeper firmer couloirs (Sierra Spring) with a longer turn radius. - currently I'm skiing the Kastle TX 87 in a 174 - while super fun - as long as its soft (corn/mush/chalk) it doesn't have enough bite on the steep firm norths... a bit sketchy! Both this Movement and the Trab look interesting... Thank you!
Answer from Zak M
Hey Tristan, overall I would say the Maestro.2 would be a better-suited ski mountaineering ski compared to the Race Pro 77. The Maestro.2 features a more rounded flex pattern and one could say less likely to deflect in variable conditions because of the softer tip. The Race Pro 77 is a straight-up stiff ski which is basically the fatter version of Movements race ski. While for some this might be ideal but others might find it relatively quite difficult to ski in especially proper ski mountaineering terrain. Give us a shout if you have any more questions!
Answer from Tristan N
Thank you Zak that is helpful!

Question from Tuju
Right now I'm skiing on a Atomic Backland 78 2017ish and enjoy them. It's been the only ski I've used this season. It covers most of my needs except for deep powder. How would this compare? I'm 5'9" about 150 and riding a 163 in the atomic to short but go up good. Was thinking about a 168 in this ski with a ski trab titan vario adjustable binding.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Tuju,

Compared with the Atomic Backland 78, the Movement Race Pro 77 will be quite a bit stiffer. Think of it as a race ski construction with larger dimensions. It will not float as well as the Backland 78, and the turn radius will be longer. Due to the large effective edge, the Race Pro 77 will hold an edge well in the steeps, and will be stiff enough to power through variable snow.

If you are looking for a ski with more float, in this waist width category, I would take a look at the Hagan Ultra 77. This ski is quite damp, has enough rocker for good float in deeper conditions, and will overall be a very versatile mountaineering ski.

Seth K (downright abused product)
These are absolutely the best skiing sub 1 kilo ski I've skied. I bought them for a trip to the Cordillera Blanca last spring, and was blown away by how well and quickly they skied in variable conditions. Since then I've used them for a ton of training days in about all conditions but deep powder. The only time I've been disappointed was in deep slush that probably would have skied poorly with any ski. Plus I can keep up with the speedy kids on race skis in the local skimo race series on them.

Question from Sheel
Thinking about getting these for longer days and some ski mountaineering objectives in Cascades and Alaska. Will they ski more like a race ski or bc ski on the downhill? Also how versatile are they in terms of using them in midwinter instead of spring?
Answer from TSB
Hey Sheel, excellent questions there. The Race Pro series in general (whether 71, 77 or 85) make for terrific mountaineering/speed touring/high-traversing skis all the way from the Dakobed to the Kichatnas, so you can't go too far wrong. It's just a matter of picking your width based on how much weight and skin friction you're trying to shave, how much unconsolidated snow you expect to encounter, and what you prefer in terms of technique. The Race Pro 71 and 77 definitely have more of a "race ski-like" feel on the down, asking the skier to be centered on her/his turns, but with a lot more stability in the tail and some added running length/camber for breaking trail. The Race Pro 85 takes Movement's proven AlpTracks 85 shape and adds a lightweight race core while retaining more of the feel of a "real" backcountry ski. I'd go for the 85 over the 77 as a midwinter ski since it has a more forgiving, semi-rockered tail that adds versatility in soft snow.
Answer this question:

Minot C Maser (used product regularly)
I bought these last spring thinking, due to their width, they could make a good light weight spring backcountry set up. I've been skiing 40-years and use to be a heli-ski guide. And, for the life of me they are just too stiff in the forefront of the ski to carve at all. Part of the problem could be I'm just 5'8" and weight 155, so can't pressure them enough to flex them. About all they ski well for me is corn or light powder with a solid base underneath i.e., early season turns on moderate ski area runs before the lifts open.

In the steeps, they're just too stiff for me to turn, so I have to hop turn them. I only use them now for Rando races. On the descent they only ski well if the groomer has softened up. Other wise they chatter and skitter all over the place.

Paulina (used product regularly)
I'm pretty much in love with these skis. Bought them last year and used them for everything but the deepest powder since. They get chattery and easy to catch an edge on hard groomers at high speeds (and what did I expect?), but otherwise they are awesome for all kinds of variable conditions in the PNW from December through June. Plus I'm no longer last on the way up given how light they are! Super happy with these.

Question from Tony
do you have an ETA on the 174?
Answer from jbo
Hi Tony, new stock is en-route and we should have them within two weeks. Cross your fingers for a smooth entry ;)
Answer this question:

bobbytooslow (downright abused product)
If you're as much about the "earning" as you are the "turning," this ski should be your daily driver. I've used it in 2 feet of Cascade cement, refrozen crud, slush bumps, and plush corduroy. Every time, I feel like I made pretty good turns. For a ski that, in 174cm, only weighs 300g more than 160cm race skis, that's really impressive. Ascending 3000' an hour isn't hard on these skis. Basically, they add to your enjoyment on the way up, and barely detract from it on the way down. Might get you an extra lap, in which case they'd be adding to the enjoyment all the way around.

Question from Paulina
Would you recommend these for a light ski mountaineering setup for a small-statured skier? I'm 5'2 and 130lbs without gear. Transitioning from telemarks to AT and looking to save as much weight as possible to ski the PNW volcanoes in variable spring conditions. But if I can have fun with the same setup in the winter, that would be a plus! If not the right ski, what would you recommend?
Answer from Nate
Hi Paulina, these are definitely a great ski for what you're describing! How much you will have on them in the winter will depend on your snow conditions, and level of comfort with a sub-80mm ski. I can tell you that I ski my skis of this dimension quite a bit in the winter. I like using them for steep, chalky couloir skiing in the winter, and then I stay on them through the spring and summer.

Question from bobbytooslow
There's a sticker on the skis saying to use a 3.5mm drill bit, but printed on the skis it says 4.1mm. Any idea which is correct?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Rob! I would recommend using a 3.5mm bit. That works well in our experience (even with the ones with metal in them).

Question from Patrick
What are the major changes (if any) from the Big Fish? Would one notice the difference? Looking for something a bit wider and longer and than my PDG's and more suitable for touring, rather than a straight up race machine. I want to save my PDG's for raceday and training at resort.
Answer from jbo
Hi Patrick, it's essentially the same ski. They redid the tip, dropping the "fish" personality, but it's the same shape with incremental manufacturing updates.
