Getting back on the slopes after a season of rest (my primary concern is the ski flex depending on my weight .... considering i'm not a mega agressive skier)
After reading a lot of material and giving it some thought I decided to buy a pair of allmountain skis
I'm an intermediate skier , 6ft 5" and 250 lbs (29 years), riding 80% groomers, variable snow conditions (nice compact snow which tends to get softer and bumpier during the day).....I rarely ski in icy conditions
My previous skis were elan mantis M12 dual titanium. (176 cm but felt a bit short)
When using the Elan configurator it suggested that the most appropriate would be the elan WaveFlex 78 TI and 82 WaveFlex XTi. (Do you think that the 78 TI's are absolutely too soft for me)?
On my wishlist are also the following skis:
Fischer motive 80
Völkl AC 30
Salomon XW Tornado TI
Atomic nomad blackeye TI
I'm mainly concerned with the listed skis being too soft for my bodyweight... but at the same time I wouldn't like to go too wide underfoot (max 82) as my last skis were 70 underfoot (i have tested a pair od 78 magfire (not ti) but they were way too soft, but felt pretty good edge to edge)
I woul realy appreciate any input on this
Is there to your knwledge any flex index (longitudinal) similar to ski boots flex index, which would make comapring skis simper in that sense.
Thanks in advance
