Now, I really want those skis, but WHY do they make them in 178 cm smallest??!! I am 164 cm tall and 178 is way to big! Suggestions? Thanks...
Not really, in a twin tip freeride/powder ski if your good they are about just right for your ht. if you feel you need to go shorter line prophet 100 in a 172, k2 obseth in 169 or 4frnt vct in 168. All would do the same job as the lib.
im pretty short too and i made the mistake of buying the 173 jib NAS because i thought the freeride 178 would be too big. dont get me wrong the Jib NAS are great skis but they dont float well enough in the pow as i wanted. the freeride NAS they are not the same as an older 178 ski. the contact area is only 135cm (actually less then my jib NAS) I had to return my Jib NAS to get these... a huge hassle. I being that backcounty has the most amazing return policy in the world, i would buy them if you have the money and return them if you end up hating them (which i highly doubt).
