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.

Description & Features

Völkl's beer league GS skis with 3D.GLASS construction, a sandwich layup with two layers of fiberglass, one wraps around the base and extends over the sidewalls, and the other sits just below the metal layer on top. This innovative construction provides more power while allowing a smooth, progressive flex down the entire length of the ski, resulting in smoother turns and more natural transitions from long to short turns. Tailored Carbon Tip technology allow for quick turn initiation with incredible control and precision.

rMotion 3 GW Race Binding - The included rMotion 3 binding was developed in coordination with MARKER, especially for the Racetiger. A complete system with a significantly lighter race plate, ensuring optimal flex and grip. The 20% wider construction allows for a significantly improved transfer of power and control. The toe piece also ensures greater stability, while the heel mechanism provides better mounting convenience.

Technical Info

3D.GLASS Construction

3D.GLASS is Völkl’s latest development to furthermore improve overall ski performance and stability even in harsh snow conditions. Compared to classic glass construction, the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the tip, tail, and binding area result in increased edge grip and more lively rebound in turns.

  • The ski becomes noticeably more agile and lively with improved rebound
  • Significantly enhanced edge grip, especially on hard and icy slopes

POWERED BY TITANIUM

Constructed of extra thin and strong aluminum alloy providing perfect dampening characteristics.

Tailored Carbon Tip

The latest Volkl technology is Tailored Fibre Placement. The Tailored Carbon Tips are produced in an innovative manufacturing process by embroidering the individual carbon fibers onto a carrier material. This allows them to be positioned precisely along stress lines, delivering just the right response from the tip during turn initiation. The stiffness and torsion can be adjusted via the fiber thickness and millimeter-precise alignment. In this way, the fibers guide the dynamics to the parts of the ski where they are needed. The visibly integrated Tailored Carbon Tips are lightweight and allow the ski to build up energy, getting the skier into the turn quickly with incredible control and precision.

MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE

A combination of lighter, softer poplar wood and heavier, stronger beech wood provides an ideal blend of lightweight, strength, durability and damping: The beech typically concentrates where the most power is needed in the ski, such as under the binding or alongside the edges and sidewalls.

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.

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.
