How to choose the right ski length

First of all there is no golden rule to determine the correct ski length. It depends on your skiing abilities, weigth, length and type of ski. But as a rule of thumb we provide the table below which is a good starting point to find your correct length
Example: If you start getting in to freeriding, take a ski which is approximately 5 cm shorter then your own length.

Quick overview

As the widest ski in the women’s touring line, the Talkback 96 is the ski to reach for when the snow in the backcountry is deep and stable. Like the rest of the Backside line, we wanted to keep the weight to a minimum to allow you to go farther faster than ever before, so we used our Paulownia Tour Lite core to keep the ski snappy and quick. And while weight was a focus on the 96, we really wanted to build a ski that has the feel and power of an alpine ski for precision descents and stable handling. To this end, we added titanal and carbon to stiffen the flex without sacrificing the nimbleness of a softer flexing ski. The overall result is a ski that ascends with ease and descends with precision and confidence.

Details

Rocker Camber Small Rise

Skis with a rocker in the tip, camber in the middle and a small rise in the tail are very versatile. The ski is easy to turn, and the camber under the foot gives the ski grip on harder snow. The tail is slightly raised, but it is not a like full rocker. This makes for a balanced combination of easy turning and carving, without compromising on stability.

Titanal Touring Core

A lightweight core specifically for touring skis. The core of lightweight Paulownia wood is reinforced with Titanal and Carbon. The Ti Spyne improves damping, stability and binding retention. The Carbon Overdrive strengthens the ski, but keeps it light and responsive.

Sidewall construction
A PU layer that seals the layered ski construction on the side and adds strength. Skis with a sidewall construction are generally more stable at speed, livelier and more durable.
