K2 PE's - Measure "True"
I have a metric tape measure, (so you don't think I screwed up the cm/inch conversion) and my 169's measure 169cm from tip to tip. So it looks like they are using a 'true' length, not running lenght. The running lenght is actually around 150.
Also they are 4 cm shorter than my 174 Rossignols, which I know measure 'True'.
Just an FYI..
I have heard alot of people here say that the k2 sizes aren't the same as other brands.
i did the same with my 179's
air dry that $hit
l i t t
I thought it would be a little odd going from my all-mountain 174's to 179's ,so 169 seemed to be the logical choice.
^^ Im 5'7' if that makes any difference...
They are about as tall as me.
clearly skiflake is 15 feet tall and finds all of us short.
170s arent that small you fuckin dillhole.
Broken collarbones are so awesome.

Its simply what we eat.
yea shes fuckin superwoman
im 15 feet tall, i thought it was normal
but how come when u put them next to the 175 TM's they are almost the excact same?

I dont know....
All I cant tell you is what Mr. Tapemeasure said.
And he said '169 cm'
shut up dude i ski 155's not my fault im short
ahaha u nutted urself
my pe's are 179 from tip to tip, but if you measure them like other companys via bottom they are longer... also my pe's are about 119mm from the tip.. weird..
5 centimeters isn't that much thats why the 169 and the 175 are almost the same length
life's a video game don't leave it on pause
just read this:The 113 is measured from the FCP
FCP: Forward Contact Point. This point is the farthest forward that still is in contact with the snow. Not necessarily the widest part of the ski, but the point from which sidecut is measured
i did that too, cool. hey what are ur 169s mounted at, jw. thanks.
i had a pair of 140s, but i jus got 142s and the 142s are shorter than the 140s?
BECAUSE SKIING NEEDS A FUTURE
short skis arent happenin
how can short skis not be happenin when there easier to ride on the mountain and easier to handle in the air and also more things than height factor into ski length
if you want short skis, become a skiblader, then kill yourself.
^No better way for a newbie to make everyone think he's cool than to rip on skiboarders... next tell us about that cool new game Dnaspin, that seems to be popular.
ive seen footage of dumont riding 161s does that mean since he rides short skis he should become a ski blader and kill himself
^^WHOA, what's this DNA game i hear of? is it sick?

i always thought that k2 always gave the measurement of the part of the ski that touches the snow
i have 159 PE's and i'm short, it doesn't cramp your style, i actually think that wicked long skis look like shit unless your really tall, and it doesn't make tricks harder just cuz your skis are longer, i skiied my friends 176 BC's and i could do the same tricks on those as i could on mine.
