Ski Measurement Method by Brand
I would be interested in knowing which ski brands measure their skis with a :
post-pressing tip-to-tail length (ON3P)
pre-pressing flat base length (Atomic)
In other words, I mesure my 176 ON3P Kartel from tip to tail, and it's 176 cm.
But when I mesure my 185 Atomic Bent Chetler from tip-to-tail, I get 182.5 cm
What about the other brands?
It's a pretty useful info when buying a new pair of skis.. without trying them..
Our skis are measured post-press, straight tape pull length like ON3P.
Seems more accurate.
K2s and On3p run truer to stated length, everyone else measures pre-press and tape pull measurements are lower than stated length. Just look through specs on Blister.
All times are Eastern (-4)
