Which are more flexible...
Short or long skis? Lets say if Im about 170 cm tall, 170 or 180 skis? Just wondering does it make big difference.
The stiffness shouldn't change. However, the longer ones will be more stable and the shorter ones will be easier to butter (easier to get over the tips or tails and press
The linger ones would feel stiffer. The actually stiffness of the ski would not change but because they are longer you woul have to work harder to flex them. Basically say your in the middle of te ski if you add 5 cm on the tip and tail that's 10cm more camber you have to push against.
Hope that makes sense
