I’m 17 years old, 140lbs, and about 6 feet tall. I do GS racing and currently ski on a Atomic GS:9 176cm. I have the chance to get a GS:11 Race Stock 190cm. I wanted something a bit longer then my current ski for additional stability, increase in speed, and the fact that I think I would do better on some more blade. The only issue I have is the fact that I am unable to demo a pair of 190’s for some time, and by then the deal will be void. I was wondering your opinion on whether or not a pair of 190’s would be too much for a person of my size and weight. I’m not the best skier in the world, but I am good enough were a real race ski and speed suit make a big difference. I am rather muscular in my legs, I bike 28 miles a day (road cycling) in the summer as training for racing. Any comments would be appreciated.
