1) Look at the size of your current skis and consider if you like the length or prefer shorter or longer.

2) Remember that 2-3 cm is not going to make a huge difference. Over 5cm will start to make a difference in feel.

The chart below is for general reference based on your height, but you should also consider these other factors. . . 

Choose LONGER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too small
- Want to ski faster & float better
- Are a heavier person so want more stability
- Are an expert, aggressive skier

Choose SHORTER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too long
- Want easier maneuverability & float in powder is less important
- Are a light weight person and want more maneuverability
- Are a beginner, casual skier

Limited Edition Graphics

Total Made: 250 Pair

Public Release: September 11, 2017

The Artwork

Mike Yoshida x J Collab

Photos captured from a decade of traveling the world in search of snow.

I'm proud to release my first 100% photography ski collaboration. Mike Yoshida travels the world capturing photos of today's top pro snowboarders. However it's his unique passion and eye for capturing beautiful snow environments that caught my eye and led to us creating this one-of-a-kind Limited Edition ski graphic.

We started this collaboration with Mike sifting through hundreds of his favorite environmental photos, and narrowing it down to his favorite few dozen. We then spent countless hours further refining and testing different arrangements in the shape of the ski. We finally agreed on these 4 images on the ski we felt were the most inspiring form a skier’s point of view.

I’m building only 250 pair of this new Limited Edition graphic on The Metal ski and hand signing and numbering each so you have a unique ski like no one else. Also available is only 80 Limited Edition prints of one of our favorite photographs, each hand signed and numbered by Mike, as well as a tee shirt to represent every day of the year. Check out the entire collection.
