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 Guidelines

There are varying opinions on how to best size skis, but the most accurate method to size race skis is based on the athlete's weight. The chart below recommends what size should work best for young athletes using one pair of skis for both events and athletes using Slalom (SL) and Giant Slalom (GS) specific skis. If an older athlete is using one pair for both events, it is best to choose an SL ski that is one size longer than the ideal SL length. A long SL ski will still work for SL and be very serviceable for GS. These are loose guidelines, and you should consult your local coach or ski expert for more specific recommendations.

Sizing Considerations:

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

  2. Racer's ability level and preference - more advanced skiers can generally handle longer length skis which can be more stable at higher speeds.
  3. 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.
  4. Coach's recommendations.

Description & Features

The Atomic Redster S9 ski is a quick-turning, slalom slashing machine dripping with World Cup approved race tech. The big news is dialed up agility and stability to the max. The secret ingredient is the pre-stressed Servotec rod along the top of the ski. The name comes from ‘Servolenkung’ because essentially it is – power steering! It makes steering more agile in turns then more stable on straights. Innovation for a new generation of Redster race and performance piste ski. BINDINGS INCLUDED.

The Atomic X 14 GW ski binding is the ideal option if you’re looking for real race performance. With a DIN value from 6 to 14, it delivers top power transfer, total control, and fantastic speed. Plus the Full Flex keeps the natural bending line of the ski under the binding, while also ensuring constant release values throughout your turn. And all without the hassle of tools!

Technical Info

SERVOTEC PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY

Servotec is Atomic's radical innovation for racing and high-performance piste skiing. The name comes from ‘Servolenkung’ because that’s what it is – the first power steering for skis! The secret is the Servotec rod on the top of the ski and the elastomer just under the binding:

  • The rod is under tension, meaning the elastomer connected to it is compressed. The whole ski is therefore in a pre-stressed position – essentially ready to turn.
  • As the ski bends into a turn, the compression in the elastomer is relaxed. It rebounds out like a spring, pulling the rod with it and actively supporting the flex of the ski. This makes steering lighter and quicker.
  • Then on fast straights the rod and elastomer dampen out bumps and ruts in the slope and even swallow up negative swings. This keeps your steering firmer and more stable when skiing straight at high speeds.

HIGH-SPEED SIDECUT

Less sidecut means top stability at high speed – but with the feel of a more shaped ski thanks to Servotec.

FULL SIDEWALL

Runs across the full length of the ski for precise steering, ideal for high-performing race and piste skis.

POWER WOODCORE

A combination of hard ash and light poplar that’s stable and sporty for our high performance skis.

TITANIUM POWERED

A titanium layer above and below the core creates supreme shock absorption, strong running stability and a high torsional flex.

ACTIVE CAMBER

With Active Camber, more of the ski’s edge length stays in contact with the snow. This creates better grip on icy slopes and makes the ski super stable.
