Specification of the basic geometric parameters of the giant slalom skis used for the experiments

Ski length (mm)1910±7195019501950
Ski width (mm)67.1±0.2656565
Sidecut radius (m)28.7±0.3303540
  • *Pref represents the original racing skis of the companies that have been mandated by SRS to serve the equipment for the experiments. Therefore, there were small variations in the geometrical variables ski length, ski width and sidecut radius between the companies (Mean±SD). Pref were in accordance with the legal specification valid until Season 2011/12: Sidecut radius ≥27 m; Ski length ≥185 cm; Ski width ≥65 mm.
