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 FIS Specifications for Competition Equipment and 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

INTEGRATED TIP

No screws or rivets so that the tip is perfectly integrated into the ski's shape.

LINE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (LCT)

An evolution of World Cup racing innovation, Rossignol’s patented new LCT construction harnesses pure power and energy, delivering fluid stability in all conditions. Featuring a central “power rail” integrated from tip-to-tail, LCT eliminates counter-flexing of the ski to ensure consistently smooth stability and dynamic control of your line.

V-Titanal

The "V" shape of the V-TITANAL layer lends a perfect balance between vibration dampening and rigidity required to keep your line in rugged conditions. A groove all along the titanal laminate ensures stiffer longitudinal flex to optimize stability and maximize power and precision.

RECTANGULAR SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION

RECTANGULAR SIDEWALL constructions feature a horizontal layering of core materials (wood, fiberglass, metal, etc.) combined with full-length vertical sidewalls to deliver optimized edge grip, precision, balance, and power.

OVERSIZED SIDECUT

Ski profile is narrower through the contact point with more flare in the tip than the tail. Provides full edge length grip and power through the turn, quick turn initiation, snappy boost while exiting the turn and quick edge to edge action.

PISTE ROCKER

Designed for on-trail precision. This ski profile features traditional camber through 95% of the ski length for explosive power, snap and edge grip, with a subtle tip rocker (5%) for easier turn initiation and control.

KONECT BINDING SYSTEM

LOOK integrated binding systems offer tool-free interface and adjustment while optimizing skiing performance. Designed only for use on the corresponding pre-mounted system plates, all-new KONECT bindings offer increased coupling strength, "konect"ing skiers more closely to the ski for enhanced precision, energy transmission, and control, while providing confident protection, reliability, and a wide range of adjustment for compatibility with most Alpine ski boot sizes.
