Midpoint on K2 skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
There are no midpoint markers (where the midpoint on the boots should line up) on my Apache Strykers. How does one measure the midpoint of the ski? End to end with tape following the curve of the tail and tip?

Did you check on the sidewall of the ski? Should be a midsole mark somewhere, either on the sidewall or topsheet.

I checked everywhere - I wonder if they don't put the marker on the ski because it comes with the integrated binding ...

You can't really measure the midsole point without some prior experience, as that location is subjective.

You can measure the center of the ski's running surface -- slide paper under the front and back of the skis to find the contact points, then go halfway between them. Note that this is NOT the midsole mark unless your have twin tips being mounted for park. Midsole marks are usually about 4-8 cm behind the center of running surface for many all-mountain skis.

Thanks! That is what I found when I measured the center of the ski's running surface. The Apache Strykers come with integrated bindings. It is possible to position the binding about 1 - 2 cm more forward, which I did...
