K2 domain skis - which size?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

The k2 domain is on sale for $299 at a local shop. It's last year's model, 2012. The pair of skis is symmetrical which is what I want.

Currently I have the k2 press twin tip 169cm. I'm 170cm or 5'7".

I ski 50% park and 50% all-mountain with the k2 press. I hit S, M, and some L jumps. I rarely doing boxes or rails but I'm considering it with the new symmetrical skis because I will be center mounted. I do a lot of switching riding as well with the press.

Which size should I get for the k2 domain? They come in 159cm, 169cm, 179cm.

I have a pair of 179cm on hold for me for the next couple of days as they might not have the 169cm.

Will the 179cm fit me fine or is the 169cm a better compromise for jumps and rails/boxes? And is the 159cm too short for the jumps? I'm planning to do some all-mountain with the symmetrical skis as well.

169 would be the best length.

Forgot to mention that I'm 135lbs. Is 169cm still good?

I just checked out the 169cm and they feel a bit short when I stood on the center. I want to do 50% park and 50% all mountain with them.

 

Should I get the 179cm or stick with the 169cm?
