Question & Answer
“I ski on a K-2 ski currently that is 174 cm long. I've been told if I go to a rockered ski I should go with a longer ski. Should I go with a 186 cm vs. my normal ski”
Actually Black Diamond has a weight recommendation for the Drift. If you weight over 170 pound the 186 cm is the size for you. The 176 cm is for skiers 150-180 pounds. Of course these are only basic recommendations, for instance if you are 175 pounds and an aggressive skier who spends most of his time in soft snow. It would not hurt to go up to the 186 cm.
