Ok I want to mount a pair of Dynafit TLTs onto a pair of Volkl Massak skis. These skis are supposed to be 168cm but actually stand closer to 166cm (I guess they measure around the curve). The center line seems to be marked with a small ‘I’ on the sidewall.
Boots are Scarpa F3s, these have a 30cm sole and the boot center line mark is exactly in the middle of the boot sole.
If I measure the chord line, that is the straight line distance from tail to tip I get 166cm, half this gives me 83cm, but what does this tell me? Should I mount the dynafits with the center of the toes on the chord line (which would mean mounting 1cm back from the manufacturer’s center line)?
My temptation is to stick with what Volkl says but does anyone know about chord lines, ski centers etc and how they are determined?
