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.

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

TRUEBLEND ALL MOUNTAIN WOODCORE

True Blend Flipcore

UNE ASSOCIATION DE BOIS EXCLUSIVE 3 ZONES DE DENSITÉ

LE BON FLEX, LÁ OU VOUS EN AVEZ BESOIN
La Technologie TRUE BLEND WOOD CORE est conçue à partir de l’association de deux essences de bois différentes. Les lames de bois à forte densité sont intégrées au noyau bois du ski.
En modifiant leur nombre et leur longueur, nous sommes capable de contrôler le flex très précisemment.
Un flex supérieur au centre du ski ou l’on a besoin de plus de puissace et un flex plus doux en talon et spatule pour une meilleure tolérance.

HIGH DENSITY WOOD STRINGERS
Grâce a la technologie true blend wood core nous contrôlons le flex précisément sur toute la longueur du ski, afin de maintenir le comportement désiré quelle que soit la taille du ski.

Le processus de Construction Carbon Flipcore est gage d’un haut niveau de qualité et de savoir-faire.
C’est cela qui a rendu les skis blizzard célèbres et qui les rend uniques.
