    5. What is an arch?
      When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and heel, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the traction and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more tolerant and manageable the ski.
    6. What is a rocker?
      On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: they are more manageable and buoyant on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more traction on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable your skis.

      Small rocker facilitating approach to turns.

    • Good Usable Skis

      First off I'm a man. A real shock, but yes. I have always skied with short skis. I prefer them. the turning circles are better. I used to ski in France with ski guides who took the French slalom team out. They all also used short skis. So I bought these to stick with what I'm comfortable with.
      They are good and my boot fits in the safety zone. The skis were set up at Decathlon Coventry by Patricia. Cracking job.
      The skis are light and durable good to carve with and allow a little hooliganism when the mood takes you.
      I would recommend these to men and women who want short skis. Had these not fit my boots it would have been 120cm snow blades with quick release bindings. They would have cost a fortune, unlike these. Great value.

      Once again Decathlon have done , Great pricing strategy combined with outstanding levels of service is a winner.
      My advice don't pay silly prices with companies who proclaim to be experts but really only want to change double the price.
      Go to Decathlon , hire the ski and take a trip to the Chill Factor if you are happy with them make the purchase.
      The staff are brilliant .

      I bought these skis for my wife and have just returned from Austria where she put them to good use. She had no problem with the skis and being new and her own they gave her more confidence and her skiing improved.
      The skis themselves were sharp, they look good and they were very reasonably priced. My wife rates them a 5 star product.
    • Fast and accurate

      I have skied on Wed'ze brand skis twice and both times I have found them to be responsive and suitable for all on piste conditions. I feel safe going fast and enjoy the precision they give me in carving turns.
      Good for speed and tight carving turns
