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.

*Junior Race Plate Compatibility Notice

The New Marker Junior Racing Plate is not compatible with X-Cell 16 and X-Cell 12 Bindings. All Marker XComp (2020-2021 and newer), Race 10 TCX, Race Junior 8, and 4.5 Junior Bindings work with this new plate.

Description & Features

The new Racetiger GS R JR has been completely redesigned for the upcoming season. Like the Racetiger SL R JR, it was tested and developed with our ski legends and their children. The result is a new geometry with a slightly wider shovel, which provides more turning support and helps young racers largely place their turns above the gates. Another highlight is the ‘scaled structure.’ All lengths are equipped with a tip rocker, full sidewall, Speedwall wood core and two layers of full Titanal. As the thickness of the Titanal and wood ratio change from length to length, the skis ‘grow’ with and are optimally tailored to the athlete. They come complete with a pre-mounted Marker JR Race Interface plate, which has been matched to the ski and offers excellent power transmission, edge grip and bending characteristics.

This race ski also features a new Race plate interface with a joint in the center, creating a much more harmonic bending curve. The new drill pattern allows a more direct power transfer, and the X-Comp binding is attached with only three (3) instead of four (4) screws. This way, the ski is more forgiving and smoother to ride.

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.

MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE

The combination of beech and poplar allows for an extremely resilient stickwood core, consisting of hardwood in the binding area and somewhat lighter wood in the remaining area.

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.

RACE FINISH

For a better grip in fast and tight turns World Cup skis come with a special race finish edging. While the SL models feature 0.7° on the base and 87.6° on the side, the GS models come with a 0.8° base and 87.6° on the side.

Zebra Base Structure

The Zebra pattern is a more aggressive base structure to offer the best possible precision & steering characteristics for the front of the skis.
