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.
This is intended to get you in the general vicinity of the correct size for you. Other factors such as weight, strength, and how aggressively you ski, as well as turn shape and speed (see below) will also play a role in size selection. Your local specialty retailer will ultimately be able to make the best size recommendation.

AN EXCLUSIVE BLEND OF WOODS PROVIDING 3 AREAS OF DENSITY
HIGH DENSITY WOOD STRINGERS
The TRUE BLEND WOODCORE technology is made of a blend of two different woods. The high density wood stringers are built into the ski wood core.
By modifying their length and number, we can control the flex very precisely.
Harder flex in the center where you need more strength and softer in the tip and tail for more forgiveness and an easy power release.
THE RIGHT FLEX WHERE YOU NEED IT
Thanks to the True Blend WoodCore technology we are able to control the flex precisely through the whole length of the ski, maintaining the desidered behaviour the same for all sizes.
