Your fat skis are killing your knees - Page 6

post #151 of 158

What knees, they have always looked like this, or they always felt this way. They say I've two or three seasons left, or get a bigger bottle of IBUs.

Got this news last week, seems I'm bone-on-bone from now on.


Cancelled Feb. in Utah more due to the snow flu there, but was still hurting from my Vail trip. Yup the Dec 14-15 dump.

 

I think 210s have a lot more to do with my knee issues, or my old Blizzard Firebird Pro 207s.

Here we go again.

The study was inconclusive, a lot of guesswork on whether wide skis cause knee damage.

And they speculated that it would be on hard snow anyway.

Personally, never felt any knee pain with wide skis.

I'd say wide skis combined with poor alignment can cause knee pain FW little IW from a non medical professional mind.

It's all relative.   How healthy are your knees, and how much abuse can they take.  My knees have incurred some damage over the years.  I would feel the effect of fat skis on hard snow.  I would feel a greater effect from attempting to forcefully pivot skis, and even more so with skinny skis stuck in the snow.

Exactly and most will use a narrow ski on hard surfaces.


Common sense also says if you feel pain stop what your doing and go with a ski that doesn't cause pain.
