my gf not the most talented skier in the wold rocks a "woman's ski" from line and she loves them. mens skis aren;' for every girl that's why they have designed certain skis for a girls wieght and personal taste. its not that people think any less of girls like that can't handle a mens ski
you're seriously taking the whole feminism fight for equal rights to this... really? the womens ski industry not adapting to the more badass chick skiers isnt going to cause the downfall of society..
theres so many better arenas for your passion girl... use it wisely.
Besides... with the ratio of girls-guys entering college right now, as well as the ratio of high school dropouts... i'm a little more worried for the future of the dudes these days... at least in this country... (obviously not in places such as interior africa, or southeast asia.. dont get me wrong there..)
A few people up there said the right thing. And with the whole feminism issue is the ski industry trying to do the right thing for woman. But ski industries are an in industrie and have to support themselves so they market to the greater market which is the softer, lighter less intense ski to the mens. What the majority of girls need is the softer ski, so that is what is provided. Why would woman need their own ski if they are just going to get a ski the same as the mens with different graffix? If you want a stiffer ski, then use a mens one. Simple as that there is no market for a harder mens ski, only a small percentage, me included uses a mens ski and that's fine. It's not feminism, it would be feminism if they made no womans skis or all the skis were like mens. But no they market to the majority of people, the girls looking for a pretty soft ski.
ah this pisses me off
womens skis are NECESSARY its not like you get on to buy mens skis and its like nope you have ovarys these skis arent for you. no your allowed to ride whatever the fuck you want to get of you female rights high horse and ski on whatever the fuck you want to.
its all preference. all my skis are women specific and i wouldnt have it any other way. im very small and dont weigh much so having less weight than a mens version is awesome.
dotn be so quick to diss. there is a reason for womens specific skis and i dont think its anti feminist at all, i thinks its pro feminism because they acknowledge we are different from men.
