FIS legal?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Looking at a used pair of Atomic race 12SL, tho I am not sure if they are FIS legal. 114, 66, 103, R13m.  


I am not sure if it still will be FIS legal above the 63 under foot FIS rule. ski.jpg

Why are you concerned of their status as far as FIS legal? I'm not trying to be condescending just wondering as per your motives. You will NEVER get called out on an illegal ski at any level below nor-am, and even at that point stand-height would be the least of their worries unless your winning.

Somewhere there is a link to the updated rules.


Anyway, on that PDF file it clearly states the stand height and width requirements, and in which year each of the changes will be implemented.


Unless you are racing WC, Nor-Am, Continental Cup, or J1 junior, I don't believe it will matter too much.

Rules are the same as FIS with the exception of IPCAS (international paralympic committee Alpine skiing), tho if one was to have FIS approved equipment for COC/WC/WCH/PWG then that equipment would work for the IPCAS races also!

That is minimum width in the rule list, not maximum. Therefore 68 is greater than 63 or 60.
