SIZE GUIDE

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

TECHNOLOGIES

TRUEBLEND PISTE WOODCORE

TRUEBLEND PISTE WOODCORE

PERFECT BALANCED FLEX
Two different types of wood specifically blended into one woodcore. The different density stringers are customized in quantity and length creating 3 different areas of density to precisely control the flex.

ACCESSIBLE PERFORMANCE
The Trueblend Piste Woodcore is designed with a harder flex zone in the center, that provides stability and edge grip, a medium flex zone in front of and behind the binding that provides control, and a soft flex zone in the tip and tail that provides easy turn initiation and release. Trueblend technology allows us to precisely control the flex throughout the whole length of the ski and in every size.

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.
