The 5th Element Zirrafe Skis, much like legendary animals of Yore, is a blend better than the sum of its parts. Designed to be a swiss army knife of sorts, the Zirrafe is here to help athletic beginners to intermediate skiers continue to improve while allowing them to ski everything the mountain has to offer. Built around an 85mm waist and a full wood core, the Zirrafe starts with a solid foundation for great edge hold and a smooth skiing experience. The Zirrafe gets a touch of rocker in both the tip and tail, and a mellow rise gives the Zirrafe almost automatic turn initiation without sacrificing the edge feel and control as speed increases. The rocker also increases the performance of the Zirrafe off-piste, allowing it to float on crud and powder for effortless arcs no matter the snow pack. As a final touch, the Zirrafe gets a dose of twin tip, making it park friendly for the more daring young skiers. The end result is that the Zirrafe excels as a confidence building, anything at anytime, ski for the beginning adult skier.

These skis work perfectly for me since I am adv.-int. I can go off ramps without falling to my immediate doom, and go through powder that is up to my thighs without twisting my ankles in the complete opposite direction!

Q: The manufacturer's website describes these as a "junior" skis. Are they equally appropriate for an adult skier? Is there anything, aside from length, that differentiates the two?
Asked : Mar 11, 2014
By : Tom, Virginia
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The 5th Element Zirrafe skis can be used by smaller adults, but are originally designed for junior skiers. Junior skis will be shorter and softer than adult skis, and will be set up to distribute weight differently than adult skis due to the physical build of younger skiers.
