HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SKI LENGTH

Determining the right ski length is not as simple as plugging in your height and weight. Although these are great factors to provide a starting point, there are other factors such as snow conditions, preferred terrain, ski category, and personal preference that should also be taken into account.

The general rule is for your skis to measure somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. With expert level skiers often choosing skis slightly above their head.

6’2” 188 175-193

Once you have determined your recommended ski size range, now you need to decide if you prefer a longer ski or a shorter ski. In general shorter skis will be easier to maneuver while longer skis will be more stable. Narrower carving skis with smaller turn radiuses and full camber can be skied shorter, while wider all mountain and freeski skis with more rocker can be skied longer. Rockered skis have a shorter contact length with the snow which makes it easier to pivot and steer, however we recommend sizing up skis with a lot of rocker in order to maintain stability.Below are several reasons to help you make this decision.

GO SHORTER, CLOSER TO YOUR CHIN IF:
  • You are a beginner-intermediate level skier
  • You prefer making shorter/quicker turns
  • You are looking for a carving ski
GO LONGER, CLOSER TO THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD IF:
  • You are an advanced-expert level skier
  • You like skiing fast and making longer turns
  • You mostly ski off trial
  • You are looking at a ski with a lot of rocker

LES TECHNOLOGIES

TRUEBLEND PISTE WOODCORE

TRUEBLEND WOODCORE

EQUILIBRE PARFAIT AU NIVEAU DU FLEX
Deux types de bois spécifiquement mélangés dans une seule lame de bois. Les longerons de densité différente sont personnalisés en quantité et en longueur, créant ainsi 3 zones de densité différentes pour contrôler précisément la flexion.

LA PERFORMANCE ACCESSIBLE
Le Trueblend Woodcore Piste est conçu avec une zone de flexion plus dure au centre, qui assure la stabilité et l'adhérence sur les bords, une zone de flexion moyenne devant et derrière la fixation qui assure le contrôle, et une zone de flexion douce en pointe et en queue qui permet d'amorcer et de relâcher facilement le virage. La technologie Trueblend nous permet de contrôler précisément le flex sur toute la longueur du ski et dans toutes les tailles.

ACTIVE CARBON ARMOR

PERFORMANCE EFFICIENCY
Active Carbon Armor is a vibration damping and rebound control system that is located under the binding. Inspired by the carbon armor from the Firebird collection, the carbon fiber plate is brought outside of the ski body which allows it to flex freely. In this way the ski turns out to be less demanding while still providing a very high level of performance.

INNOVATIVE AND VISIBLE TECHNOLOGY
Active Carbon Armor provides both vibration damping and enhanced rebound and acceleration without effecting the progressive flex of the ski.

Duramax

Duramax

UNE PROTECTION DURABLE

Nouvelle construction titanesque conçue pour offrir à la fois une durabilité maximale et des performances accrues avec un look unique et de grande valeur.  La couche supérieure de titanal est étendue jusqu'au bord du ski et placée directement sous la feuille supérieure qui est ensuite fraisée sur 3 mm, ce qui la met à nu. Le titanal absorbe directement tous les impacts qui se produisent le long du bord supérieur, ce qui réduit les rayures et élimine l'écaillage.
