New lengths are 166/173/181/189 on the entire BMX/FX series.  With the added rocker, they are the same functional length as the old ones however.  The 181 skis like a 176 on firm snow.  


Huh. So a 173 skis like a 168? Interesting.  Is the 166 like the 160, too?  Hm. I'd like to demo those.  Doubt it will happen this season.

yes, deduct 3-5cm off the FX lengths to get the equivalent MX length.  Rocker and different flex. I found the 181 to be super nimble, most people would think a 181 at my size to be on the long size.

Hi dawg, thanks for your reply. Look for PM from me.

The 176 FX94 may ski like a shorter ski but I haven't found the speed limit yet.

I think it is more accurate to say it turns like a shorter ski when not carved but lay it over and that 20m radius is stable as can be.

Yeah, the only place I wanted something wider was for deeper mixed snow.  For that condition, at my skiing speed (wide open terrain mostly here), I need something a touch longer, 180cm or so.  The 176cm was perfect when I bumped the binding back though, just needed an adjustable binding and it did the trick.
