# deminsions

Help!, printed on my skis there is 107/90/79 i think.

Also it says 16mm side cut 18mm radius, I have no idea what these numbers mean.
You must have very strange skis.
Usually the three numbers are the width of the skis in mm at the front middle and rear. The 107 is plausible for the front; 90 is kinda wide for a mid width, and 79 is not unreasonable for a mid width but makes no sense being skinier than the midsection.

16 mm might mean that the mid section is 16 mm narrower than the fronts.
18 m (not mm) would be reasonable for a side-cut radius.
Perhaps 107/79/90? But, I thought you said that you had K2 Escapes, and they have different dimensions than that, depending on which Escapes you have...

The three numbers are the tip/waste/tail widths in mm. The radius is the radius of a full circle that would be created by extending the sidecut until it became a circle (note: this is not a turn radius!). A sidecut radius is often the difference in width from widest to narrowest, but it's a silly measurement. As are most of these. You really have to ski them to see...
I think it´s quite simple.

The AXIS X (2002/2003 and 2003/2004) or the Omni 2.5 (2004/2005) have 107-70-97. Their sidecut is 16 mm and the radius 18 m/174 cm.
Sounds like the perfect ski for one of our "high volume" posters technique.

Never mind ... Mamma said "don't never conjure up no devils!"

Nothing special. Just the catalogs from 2000 on arranged in folders. The processing of information so to say.
I´m just writing texts on new gear and sometimes have to take older catalogs to illustrate the trends and changes. It keeps my memory working.
And makes me forget everyday impracticalities. Just ask my wife...

We are not worthy!

That's what I get for trusting the Internet to be my filing system...
