SoAnGProbably fun on groomers and rails but that's about it. I have the 172 Bdogs at the same height and those feel a bit short at times. Probably depends more on your ski style. I noticed you like carving skis. The Bdogs have a short turn radius so it seems to fit your style offering a more freestyle approach.
LadleHammyThanks man really appreciate it. You say you have the 172. They were out when I went but the deal was to good to pass up and I already had the pivot 18s in The trunk. What hight are you riding the 172 if you don't mind me asking ? Ty
supersquidSorry my guy but yeah, those are mad small. Im 5’9 and ski a 181-185 in the park. Nothing is stopping you from skiing them. They just wont be very stable and will probably look awkward if your trying to stack clips. Id try and sell if you can. Or not, practice spins and technical rail tricks so that you have em on lock when you get longer sticks.
LadleHammyWill it make tricks easier ?
Dan-Manit is a nice looking setup tho!
DIRTYBUBBLElol jk you’re a snowblader now
elliotfitzgeraldI'm 5'8 and ride 164, it's not an issue for me. For park and riding on groomers, having a short ski isn't really an issue, and even if it's 10cm shorter than what's ideal it won't make a big difference. If you're doing more backcountry, powder, off-piste, going for a longer ski might make a noticable difference, but it's not worth completely replacing your skis. Next pair you buy, you can go up in length or stay the same if you're having no issues
TrawinatorI'm 5'5 and just changed over from my 164 cm ARV 96 to some 172 cm edollos cuz I was looking to move to some longer skis. Way more fun on the longer skis, considering that I'd say the 164 are way too short for you and definitely recommend trying out something longer
