Ski length question- BBR8.9 166 or 176?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hi!

 

Santa will bring me BBR skis this year, so wanna check the size with you - should it be 166 or 176?

 

i'm 5'11"-6', 205lbs, intermediate+ on the slopes (10y), and more of the beginner off-piste(2y). usualy i ski 165cm carvers (atomic sl and similar), so its not that powder ready. Want to concentrate on off-piste more and Santa heard my wishes :)

 

any ideas?

 

thanks

176 without question. You might also consider the 7.9. Given your ability level, there's no need to buy the top model ski. The #2 model down is easier to ski and if you really are a lower level skier, you won't progress out of it in the forseeable future.

Thought of asking for 7.x, but prices are the same ( 8.9 even slightly better )..

 

And then there would be lenght question again 169 or 179 :)

That does not necessarily mean that it is a better buy for you. Besides............http://shop.starthaus.com/store/pc/2012-Salomon-BBR-7-9-Skis-p6394.htm
