Ski purchase

The purchase of skis is a real investment, especially when you opt for bare skis. That's why it's important to choose the skis that best suit your morphology, your style of skiing and your level. Frequency of use is also an aspect to be taken into account. Here are a few tips from Precision Ski to help you choose the pair of skis that suits you best.

BUYING SKIS: A PAIR FOR EVERY PROFILE

Before choosing a pair of skis, the first thing to determine is what you want to do.

Piste skiing. This practice is for those who like speed and precision. Short skis with a narrow skate and wide tips are ideal for this type of activity.

The All Mountain. All-terrain enthusiasts, opt for the All Mountain. You'll need skis that are easy to control, with a medium width runner (plus or minus 75 mm) and a long tip.

Freeride. Lovers of powder snow, you have just found your happiness. Your skis must be wide at all levels: long, wide tips and an imposing skate.

Freestyle. Are you planning to spend your time in the snowparks trying out new acrobatics? In that case, you're a freestyle enthusiast. Opt for lightweight and particularly resistant dual-spatula skis.

Whichever practice you choose, we recommend Volkl skiing. This high quality winter sports equipment satisfies the most demanding sportsmen and women. Depending on your skier profile, you can also opt for ski and binding packages. These tailor-made packs will allow you to be sure of the compatibility of your equipment and the quality of the assembly.

SKI PURCHASE: SIZE AND WEIGHT

The choice of a pair of skis must also be made according to size and weight. Freeride fans are advised to choose skis that are the same size as their own. As for other practices, it is wise to select skis measuring, on average, 10 to 15 cm shorter than the skier himself. The heavier the skier, the stiffer the skis should be. Lighter skiers will have difficulty handling heavier skis. On the other hand, a sportsman of substantial weight on skis that are too soft will not enjoy the sensations that this sport has to offer.
