What length SL skis for a 14y jr

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

The guy is 14y old, 183cm tall and weights 57kg. Very skinny and tal. Last year he was on a pair of old Atomic 155cm jr SL skis and he loved them. I tried the skis at some point but they were way too soft. Should he stick to old skis or upgrade to 155cm women skis? Or what other options are there?

I see that most 14 year old boys, except those at either end of the size scale, usually ski the 155cm FIS SL ski. Mine is 61kg and 178cm and is on the Dynastar 155 FIS SL this year. If you are concerned about strength and weight, you can always pick a "softer flexing" brand.

Thanks for your input. Yes my son is 58kg so he is pritty close to your son in weight and length. A little taller and a little skinnier. I guess a softer flexing brand should work. Are Heads soft and Fischers stiff? Any input much appreciated.

I would say that Fischers are amongst the stiffer skis and Heads are more middle of the road.

Rossi is going to be the "softest" usually.  Old Heads are quite soft, but the newer models are really stiff.

155cm, Rossi is going to be softer, Head and Fischer will be stiffer and I find Atomic to be in the middle.  The best way to find skis is to be able to ski on the different skis.
