Buying guide

Definition

Skiing is an extremely popular winter sport – it not just gets your adrenalin rushing, but also allows you to spend time in some of the most beautiful winter resorts. Buying skis may be considered a challenge, but not when you know what to look for. You can shop for skis online too.

 

What to look for in skis?

The ski length

The length of your skis should be as per your height. For instance, if your height is 5’, you should ideally choose skis of length 135-155 cm. For someone who is 6’ tall, the ideal ski length is 170-190 cm.

The stiffness of skis

The stiffness of skis is another point to be noted. You can opt for longitudinally stiff or soft flexing skis – the former supports weight better while the latter is more flexible. Also consider torsional stiffness of skis – this feature determines how much twist resistance you can get.

The width of skis

A ski’s width is measured at its narrowest point and is usually in the middle region. There are five widths that skis have – 60-79 mm, 80-89 mm, 90-99 mm, 100-120 mm and more than 120 mm.

Sidecut and radius of skis

Also sidecut of skis determine the extent of tightness of turn – deeper means tighter turn. As far as radius is concerned, opt between long, short and long depending on the terrain.

 

How to choose your skis according to your need?

Skis for Alpine skiing

For alpine skiing, you need skis that are fast, precise and designed to turn easily and tightly. There are ski bindings that attach your feet to the heels and toes of the ski for extra protection.

Skis for extreme skiing

For extreme skiing, you need the best skis because this form of skiing is most dangerous. The skis that you choose should have the perfect weight and width and they should allow you perfect balance through and through.

Skis for Nordic skiing

Nordic or cross-country skis are lightweight and thin with slightly straight edges. The binding only attaches at the toes and wax coating is applied to reduce friction during forward motions.

Skis for jumping skiing

Jump skiing is another form of Nordic skiing and is exhilarating, to say the least. Here you need skis that attach your feet at the heels and the toes and are lightweight but sturdy. Since you will be landing on the surface, you need excellent balance too.

 

What are the most popular skis?

Fischer Attack 13 Ski Binding gives you power to drive forward. It offers 180°protection to your knees when you don't have that perfect landing. It has a stand height of 17mm.

Rossignol Experience 75 Skis is made for mountain skiing and is perfect for first timers and skiers with intermediate experience. It offers an easy freeride feel and enhances control and float.

Blizzard Zero G 95 Ski has a rockered tip and tail with camber underfoot. These skis have the perfect weight to make your legs feel fresh even after intense skiing. The sandwich construction of these skis provide stability.

 

Conclusion

Buying skis is fun but more than anything else, you should consider the safety aspect. Think of any type of skis and you can find the relevant information online. Shopping online for skis is fun because you get to learn so much. And then, you can save money on purchase too.
