Skis and personal skills
You have never skied or have skied a few times, you still have some difficulties in basic movements and are learning to make your first low-speed curves on easy slopes (blue). Ski proposed: basic, simple.
You ski mostly for fun (one or two weekends a year or during a skiing holiday), you are able to turn at medium speed and to ski on all types of tracks. You would like to improve skiing at a higher speed. Ski proposed: balanced and comfortable.
You have been skiing for many years and no slope puts you in trouble. You ski anywhere safely and use skis perfectly united in curves, without altering the radius of curvature, and begin carving. Ski proposed: comfortable and performing.
On the track you are able to lead skiing in high-speed cornering and you know perfectly how to carve. Off piste, you are at ease on all types of snow and ski safe and fluid. If you are a freestyler, always choose the most difficult path. Ski proposed: high-performance, exclusive.
The general rule is to choose a ski length between the chin and a few centimeters above skier’s head. Most are short, simple to use. Experienced skiers usually prefer longer skis. A shorter ski will be easier to turn, but is not as stable as a longer one.

Helmet: how to measure your head
To select the right helmet, before arriving to Ermanno Sport store, you must measure the circumference of your head. Get a measuring tape and place it about 2.5 cm above the eyebrows (as shown). The system is valid both for adults and junior.
