Which size K2 KungFujas?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am 6'4" / 193 cm, and weigh about 86 kg / 13.5 stone / 190 pounds.

I am an intermediate to advanced skier, looking to buy some K2 KungFujas for some groomers and off piste skiing mixed with some back country tours from time to time. Based on this, and trying to get something for all mountain, which size ski would be recommended? 179 cm or the 189 cm? I have currently skiied a 176 cm, so I am a bit daunted by the length of the 189s and whether you can get in quick turns with them? 

Would be great to hear people's feedback thanks!

i certainly love mine and use them as my all round ski...

 

i am 189cm and about 100kg and use the 179 but again using them for everything... i have had no problems in powder in Europe in the few inches i get there...  but in Utah i struggled as snow so light and deep... i will be buying Powder skis for my trip to SLC later this year... 

 

they do feel very short on the turn with the rocker and turn easy and decent at speed.. i certainly wouldnt change them... but i use 3 sets of skis right now and intend to buy a 4th... 

 

as far as length for you... hmmm i would be tempted with the 189 if skiing off post in them as they do ski short...

Thanks Scotty, 

 

I am leaning towards the 189s... it will be a last minute decision before I purchase I think! Over here in Norway, we get a fair bit of powder, so I am thinking the 189s might be a good choice from what you have said.

At your size and since the ski has some rocker, I'd go with the 189.  They may feel a bit long at first, but you will quickly adapt to the extra length.

you really don't want to go shorter than the 189. they have enough rocker that this lenght will be very easy to pivot and turn. Fun ski and you will love em'

Cheers for the advice guys... i'll take the gamble and go for the 189s. Can't wait for these.
