Torsional rigidity

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Should race/ekspert skis be as torsional rigid/stiff as possible all the ski length? Specially the tip and tail? And is the argument the same for SL, GS, SG?

Pends on the ski application. Generally, I prefer a stiff ski all around.

If its a soft powder ski that only comes out on soft days, not a big deal.

If its a ski that is used to ski very fast, it should be as stiff as possible side to side. I've taken a few nasty falls at speed on my G4's when the front edge lets go due to side to side flex. Not cool.
