Movement Random-X Ski


The Movement Random-X is a classic European touring ski. Just remember that classic touring in Europe often involves situations many Americans would find rather unsafe. In other words, the Random-X is designed to perform predictably on variable terrain and is ideally suited for skiers who often find themselves in tricky situtations. If that sounds like you, please note that these skis will enable you to get into many such tricky situations far from civilization since they only weigh 960 grams (~2.1 pounds) [167cm]. That is possible due to Thin Ply Technology, which is a patented process that involves weaving carbon fibers around the ultralight Karuba and poplar wood core. The result is a traditional camber ski that you can rely on.

  • Ultra light selection of Karuba Paulownia wood core with poplar reinforements for a good blend of rebound and weight.
  • Carbon fiber is spun around the core in a rigid torsion box using patented North Thin Ply Technology (TPT).
  • Classic camber is designed to give the most secure edge hold possible.
  • P-Tex 4000 is baked onto the bases to give smooth gliding core protection.
  • Excellent crossover ski between touring and skimo racing.

** Telemarkers: Movement does not recommend mounting telemark bindings on these skis.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Nicholas Brown
Can you suggest a successor to the Movement Random-X?
Was a great ski, but I could do with replacing them now.
Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Nicholas, thanks for reaching out! The new Race Pro 77 is a fantastic ski in this category, and shaves a few grams as well!

Question from Gabi
Hi, I'd like to buy the random-x as a more robust version of a race ski for fast and long uphills. I am 169cm tall and 57kg and there is only the 151cm version available. My race ski is also 151 and has a Tip rocker but for this ski I am not sure if the 151cm is too short.
Answer from jbo
Hi Gabi, 151 is a bit short for you for skiing-wise. I'd consider something in the 157-163cm range.

Question from Zachary J
Is there a pre-cut skin option with the 166? Thanks!
Answer from jbo
Hi Zachary, unfortunately we weren't able to get the Movement precut skins this season. The closest would be the Colltex Mohair Mix, which is the same skin, just not precut.

Answer from jbo
Hi Alvaro, based on your size, I think you would be happiest on the 167cm ski for general touring and mountaineering. You can send an e-mail to if you would like to discuss this is more detail, including your planned usage and ski style. Thanks!
