Low Bend Style Outriggers now on Sale. Superlite Outriggers are the most popular outriggers in the world. They are the outrigger of choice for Paralympians and adaptive sports programs alike. Used to assist in balancing, stopping, turning, and getting on and off the lift, these outriggers will enhance your skiing experience. There's no skiing without them!
Superlite Outriggers come with a variety of choices because we feel it is important to accommodate a wide range of ability levels and unique customer needs. Below we provide some insight and general recommendations to help you with these choices.
Stand up outrigger sizing tends to correlate with a skier's height. Wing span and ability level will affect length preferences, but these are our recommendations.
X and Y are two measurements we use for outrigger sizing. X is the distance between the top of the cuff and the top of the grip. Y is the distance between the top of the grip and the bottom of the ski tip.
|Size||X||Y||Recommended Skier Height|
|Tall||9" - 10.25"||37" - 43"||6' - 6'6"|
|Large||9" - 10.25"||34" - 40"||5'9" - 6'3"|
||9" - 10.25"||31" - 37"||5'3" - 6'|
|Small||9" - 10.25"||25.25" - 31.25"||4'8" - 5'3"|
|Kids||7"||19.5" - 25.5"||4'8" and below. Has a cut down and shorter cuff for smaller skiers.|
Below shows how we measure X and Y. If you have been borrowing a pair of outriggers from an adaptive ski program and are ready for your own pair, you can measure them and compare with the chart above!
Using a tape measure, measure from the top back surface of the hand grip to the top of the arm cuff. Measure along the bend of the outrigger.
The higher up on the forearm your cuff is, the greater the mechanical advantage for you. However if it is too high up, the cuff will bite into your upper arm when you lean over. While we only need to know the distance from the hand grip, one method for determining where the cuff should be is to measure the distance from your elbow. The distance from your elbow to the top of the cuff should roughly be:
This is only a guideline and your own comfort and usability will be the real final deciding factor. If your current outriggers are adjustable, try them at different heights.
Hold the flip ski bottom in a perpendicular position. Using a tape measure, hook the end to the bottom of the ski and measure to the top surface of the hand grip.
Z is the circumference of your forearm. It is used to provide the correct cuff size. Using a tape measure or string, measure your forearm at it's widest point.
