German term or phrase: Laufruhe
Man unterscheidet zwei Arten von Geschwindigkeitsverhalten von Skis - das neutrale und das aufgekantete. Beide sind wichtig, weil ein unruhiger Ski im Gegensatz zu einem ruhigen viel Kraft benötigt. Dieser Ski hat einen hervorragenden Kantengriff und hohe ***Laufruhe*** bis in den mittleren Geschwindigkeitsbereich.
Danke!

"Running smoothness" sounds very strange to my ear. Personally I'd reword this to use "smooth running" or "run smoothly".
