Need Help- Volkl AC30 163 vs 170?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey Folks,

Going to pull the trigger on a pair of volkl ac30s, and pretty excited. One question remains...163 or 170? Here is my profile: 23 yrs old, advanced/expert skiier, 5'9", 155-160 lbs, ski 80% east coast-20% west coast on variety of trails (mogul runs, groomers, etc.). Thoughts?

170. I ski them in 163 and I am 3" shorter and 15lbs lighter.

170. I had them in 163 and didn't have much fun. 5'9" 150lbs here. Longer is better for these skis.

170 cm. No reason to go any shorter.

170, nice ski, but note it expects you to know what you're doing, and at your weight, it'll like moderate to higher speeds to wake up and bend.

I ski this ski in a 170 and I'm about your size. 5'9" / 155 pounds

Just a note.  Since this thread was started the AC30's dimensions have changed.  I don't remember all the dimensions, but

I believe this years are 80mm underfoot vs. 76mm in prior versions.  Head and tail changed as well.
