KittenFactoryWe scale our ski dimensions so they ride the same for the size / ability of the person the ski is designed for. If you kept the dimensions the same on the Rayzrblaydz for example, they are a wider park ski for somebody 5'10" in a 183 length, but a 95 mm underfoot ski in a 163 would almost be a pow ski for somebody who is 5' tall. And a smaller person most likely isn't going to ski as hard, or flex the skis as much in a turn, therefore a shorter radius is used to compensate.
The 5 point sidecut is not "getting old" at all. The amount of taper is very important in the way a ski rides, especially a pow ski.
Ahhh that actual;y makes sense now about the ski dimensions. You are basically making the ski proportioned to the skier in each size, I like it.
And I didn't mean that taper is getting old, I am talking about listing the actual tip and tail dimensions. It's kinda useless info for the consumer, at least in my opinion. I'm more interested in how far from the tip and tail the taper starts than what it tapers down to.
Thanks for the explanation.
