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.

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.

Technical Info

Intelligence

HEAD'S THEORY OF RELATIVITY

Ski performance is not an absolute measure. What you want out of a ski always depends on how and where you ride.

On hard-packed slopes you want perfect edge grip. On soft snow, you want more maneuverability. Breaking the slope record you want your ski to perform differently than when you're just cruising with your friends or family.

Adaptive HEAD Intelligence Technology helps your ski perform perfectly - both relative to terrain and your individual riding mode.

HOW IT WORKS

Intellifibers positioned at 45° in front of the binding transform mechanical impulses into electrical energy. The harder you ride, the more energy is produced.

The electrical energy is led back to the Intellifibers. This causes them to stiffen up, putting more rebound and torsional stiffness into the ski.

WHAT IT DOES

Their 45° position in front of the binding increases the ski's torsional stiffness, pushing the edge into the snow in hard turns.

Intelligence progressively stabilizes the entire ski at high speeds.

INTELLIGENCE CHIP TECHNOLOGY - THE EXTRA BOOST

Some HEAD high-end skis boast Intelligence Chip Technology. Here, the electrical energy produced by the Intellifibers is not just recycled, but accumulated and released bit by bit through a per-programmed chip - individually timed to match the oscillation properties of the ski.

Thus, the effect of Intelligence is multiplied, providing even more performance relative to your skiing style.

GRAPHENE

GRAPHENE is the thinnest and lightest element ever discovered by mankind. It is also the strongest material on the planet, stronger than diamond and 300 times stronger than steel, all in the thickness of one atom.
