Nordica Steadfast 170mm or 178mm

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just had a quick chat to the Nordica rep, who reckons that because the Steadfast is an 'early rise' ski you need to choose a slightly longer ski to account for the nature of the ski.

 

I am 179cm tall (5'9)  weigh 73kgs (160lbs)

Any help would be appreciated.

What do you ski now (or have skied)? and how did you like those length wise?

 

Based on general height/weight, the 170cm is a fine length.

I now ski the 177cm Volkl AC30, pretty punishing to ski on all day, A bit long I think, I'm tending towards the 170 but then had this conversation with the Nordica Rep, and he's brought this issue to the table, about the 'early rise'.  I think I'll just go with my gut feeling and order the 170's.

Binding wise - I thought the Marker Griffon 13 would be the best choice - but again, do I need the 90mm or the 110mm model?

90. The ski is 90mm wide. The brake arm can be bent a bit if there are any clearance issues.

I'm about 5'7" and 145 pounds and I ski the Steadfast 170s.  I would recommend the 178.  It's much easier to ski than your Volkls.
