    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method provides information concerning the resistance of a ski to permanent bending and an indication of its basic strength. 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 determination of linear deformation load and breaking load for Alpine skis.2

    1.2 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
