There are varying opinions on how to best size skis, but the general rule for modern ski length is between the skier's chin to the top of the head, depending on the type of skiing and the ability of the user. The guidelines below are for race skis and start with the athlete's height, which you add or subtract length based on discipline, gender, weight, age, and ability of the racer. These are loose guides and you should consult your local coach or ski expert for more specific recommendations.

FIS Race Ski Sizing Guidelines

FIS regulations change frequently, so it is best to consult with your coach or local ski expert before making a final purchase. Please see the current USSA/FIS Equipment Rules for specific age and circuit rules.

Non-FIS Race Ski Sizing Recommendations

Slalom (SL) skis are generally measured between the chin and nose. Giant Slalom (GS) are generally a bit longer and are measured between the nose and top of the head. Lighter weight and less experienced skiers may want to go with a ski that is a bit shorter than the chart below. The opposite is applied to heavier or more aggressive ski racers and you may want to go a bit longer. Again these are only loose recommendations and you should consult with your local ski expert for more specific advice.

69 - 72 175 - 183 160 - 175
73 - 76 185 - 193 170 - 185

Sizing Considerations:

  1. Consult FIS, USSA, and other level appropriate regulations.

  2. Racer's height to weight ratio - a heavier racer may need a longer ski.
  3. Racer's ability level and preference - more advanced skiers can generally handle longer length skis which can be more stable at higher speeds.
  4. Growth of the athlete - you may want to consider sizing up a little if you want to get multiple years out of a younger racer's skis, although most coaches agree that skiing on a slightly shorter ski the second year is preferable to skiing on a ski that is too long.
  5. Coach's recommendations.

Description & Features

The SPEED WC FIS SL is the all-new, F.I.S. approved, World Cup slalom ski designed for elite-level athletes and competitive racers. Early Rise tip rocker speeds turn initiation for faster, more aggressive lines while new rounded tips with WC Springblade technology improve swing weight and inertia, putting the ski on edge even faster. New Race Department developed Powerdrive technology works like the chassis of a race car, providing active suspension and eliminating instability to deliver smooth, dynamic power with ground-breaking control and edge grip.

Technical Info

POWERDRIVE

POWERDRIVE consists of a vertical sidewall made from three materials: a visco-elastic component to absorb uneven terrain, a second Titanal part to boost performance and the ABS element of the sidewall, which plays its traditional and pivotal role of ensuring ski/ snow contact.

SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION

Full wood cores, fiberglass and metal laminates, with full-length vertical sidewalls deliver optimum snow feel, balance, precision, power and stability.

FIBRO METAL

Utilizes varying shapes of metal and fiberglass laminates at staggered lengths in the tip of the ski to provide a lighter extremity. The unique layered shapes control tip torsion which smooths out turn initiation and improves full-length edge contact. The lighter weight tip improves the swing weight of the ski for quick and adaptable turn initiation.

FULL SIDEWALL

FULL SIDEWALL constructions feature full-length vertical sidewalls from tip to tail to deliver optimized edge grip, precision, balance, and power.
