An Example of how easy it is:

  • Measure your body height → 175cm
  • Define your ski level based on the descriptions above → Intermediate
  • Pick your favorite ski model → S/Force 11
  • Find the right ski size range for you → 175 cm + Intermediate x S/Force 11 = 175 = [-5, 0] = [170, 175]
  • Your perfect ski is the S/Force 11 size 170cm!
