Stay with the 177 cm. The Katana will be a bit stiffer because its carbon but, definitely lighter. They will be snappier in the trees you just have to be more on your game as they are less forgiving.

Depends on how you ski or would like to ski. If you want to ski faster and make bigger turns the 181 will help you. If you like to make shorter turns and are okay with skiing a little slower the 174 will be much more fun to ski.

Unfortunately Grivel cannot legally put a KN rating on the tool. Since it is not intended to be used as an anchor they cannot put that kind of definitive rating on it. I know sometimes they do get used as an anchor the manufacturer just cannot endorse that on the books.

Salomon generally has a wider toe box than some of their competitors such as La Sportiva. If you have super wide feet though you may need to find a wide option which we do not really carry on our site. I'll follow up with an email to see if we can get some exact foot measurements. With that I can contact Salomon and ask their opinion.
