ON3P Ski Sizing
I wanted to get a pair of the 15/16 ON3P Kartel 106's, but I'm unsure of what size to order. I read that they run a bit longer based on how they measure the ski, which is mixing me up a bit.
I'm 6'1", 175, and an intermediate skiier. I was deciding between the 176s or the 181s, any recommendations? Also, does the rocker play into this decision at all?
181. I'm a 5'11, 150lb expert skier and i like on3p at 186 or 191. They have a lot of rocker in both the tip and tail rocker which makes them much "shorter" than a traditional camber ski. Basically they're extremely easy to ski even if they seem long. The biggest factor is where you mount them at. If you center mount, consider 186. If you don't center mount, at least get 181. Considering your height and the amount of leverage you'll be able to put on skis shaped this way, do not get 176's.
Honestly with your height and weight I would get a 186, especially if your skiing improves over the next couple years.
181 or 186 . On3p runs true to size. Tip to tail.
Don't be stupid.

Take a tape measure and measure out the size (you might have to convert to inches unless you have a metric tape). That's how long the skis are. There's a lot of rocker in the ski, so they ski much shorter than normal skis. At your weight and skier ability, you'd probably be best off with the 181.

181 no doubt, 186 if you wanted but id stick with 181
