HO Alpha sizing

Has anyone ridden the alpha that is around 190 lbs? Size chart says the break between 67 and 68 is right at 190. I am 192 and ski 34 mph, so right on the edge. I would probably lean towards the 68 but wanted to see others experience. Obviously a demo would be the best option. @savaiusini ?

    I’m 187cm and 84kg which is about 185 lbs, skiing at 34 mph, loving my 67” Alpha.

    I'm 195lbs and prefer the 67 on both the Alpha and the Omega and 68 on the Pro. I would say if you were happy with your 66.5 S2, you'll like the 67 on both of these. The Omega gets you a little more surface area in the tail and I feel that helps keep the ski in trim.

    My dad is 195lbs skis 34mph and runs 35 off. He’s on the 68” but often says he feels like the 67” would be a better fit. It definitely skis fast so a person gets by well on the smaller size ski for their weight.
