    Significance and Use

    This test method provides a means for determining the torsional stiffness of Alpine skis. It is not intended to evaluate the data with regard to the quality of the ski.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the measurement of ski forebody torsion and ski afterbody torsion of adult Alpine skis.

    1.2 No limitation to ski size is proposed. This test method is applicable to all Alpine skis.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
