Difference bet Solomon bbr 7.9 vs 8.0 vs 8.9. I wanted size 169 lenght but only the 7.9 and 8.0 comes in tht size. 8.9 is either 166 (?too short) or 176 too long. Which will be best?

As the number gets bigger, so do the dimensions of the ski. Now Salomon says that all of them are "all mountain skis" but obviously the 7.9 is more on-piste than the 8.9. As far as the lengths go sizing down 3cm (which is barely an inch) in the 8.9 shouldn't be a big deal, if you are looking for a pow ski. Otherwise I'd get the size you want in the 8.0
