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.

Technical Info

POWERED BY TITANIUM

Constructed of extra thin and strong aluminum alloy providing perfect dampening characteristics. The titanium setup makes the ski agile and dynamic, especially friends of a hard, fast, and aggressive riding style benefit from the quick response of this construction.

ULTIMATE VIBRATION OBJECT 3D (UVO.3D)

UVO.3D is the first freely rotating, vibration damper to apply cutting-edge vibration dampening technology to minimizing disruptive ski vibration.

The terrain or surface below the ski inevitably generates vibrations, which in turn set the shovel in particular into motion in all directions. This significantly disrupts the smoothness of the ski-ride, and makes it harder to hold an edge.

The revolutionary UVO technology counteracts this, with proven dampening or reduction of vibrations in the horizontal and vertical directions as well as along the length of the ski. The ride becomes smoother and the edge grip improves.

SPEEDWALL MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE

Ski sidewall/core technology intended for aggressive on-piste and racing capable of delivering the victory, even if it is measured in hundredths of seconds.

The sidewall is laminated to extremely stable layers of hardwood with more flexible, lighter wood built into the center of the sandwich core. The hardwood imparts higher power transmission, improves the edge grip, and supports the edge against external forces. While the low weight of the softwood center brings more agility, maneuverability, and reduces overall ski weight. The combination of both wood types running through the entire ski length contributes to an optimal distribution of the ski stiffness precise steering.

TIP ROCKER

An early-rise tip design for racing. The combination of an early rise tip and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski provides easy, smooth turn entry regardless of conditions. The ski is forgiving and easy to handle.
