The K2 One Luv has got a lot of recommendations, but it seems to be geared towards Advanced skiers (per the K2 site) - wouldn't the True Luv or even the Sweet Luv be a more suitable intermediate ski for a relatively light woman who skis at a very comfortable/relaxed pace on hardpacked/groomed stuff only?
Also, does anyone have experience with the Volkl Attiva S1 or S2? I think the Attiva 5 Star (and probably even the Attiva 4 Star) might be too much ski.
Oh, on size, I'm thinking around 153-156cm should be good at that weight?
Thanks for any further thoughts on these!
If you can find them: 165 Dynastar 3D artist at 165. In canada, they are are sport mart for $150. These have the light flex you want, but also have a plate, and men's mount.
At her height and weight, a softer unisex ski will be fine. I'd go 165 no less than 165, since she is 178 cm tall. The 155 cm skis will probably feel way too short, and she could have a harder time with fore and aft balance.
