This is why women want to buy skis made for them. Womens skis are not just guys skis with women's graphics. Women are built different than guys and therfore should have a ski built for them. The flex pattern of the ski is generally 15 to 20% softer and therefor lighter. This allows women who generally (sorry ladies no offense) are not as strong as guys and do not have the weight to throw a ski around to be able to manuever easier with a ski that is built to their specs not ours. Last but not least women have a lower center of gravity then men, thus meaning that their weight is distrubutied on the ski differently and thus the mounting point is usually 1 to 2cm forward of the mounting point for men.
