From a non-skier, what is the advantage of bigger skis? I could see that they would provide lower ground pressure and not sink as easy, but doesn't that also cause greater friction and slow you down?

well, you're spot on with the not sinking part, and these skis will have a 10+ cm rule, which means that unless it snows 10cm or more, I'll use either of the other two pairs. The length actually makes it go faster, the chemistry of the ski wax actually eliminates friction with the snow, and the bases are structured to have tiny grooves running the length of the ski, which eliminates a sort of suction cup action when the entire surface of the base is in contact with the snow, and thus it glides smoothly over the snow with extremely little friction. If you notice in the Downhill ski racing events, all the skis are extremely long; this is so they can have maximux contact with the snow and go faster, since the skier's weight is distributed over a larger surface area and causes less stress overall (which also reduces friction). As well, since they're so long (and so fat) the surface area is huge compared to my body weight. because i'm relatively small to be riding these skis, they're rediculously stable, and can handle a LOT of crazy terrain without being tossed around. For example, with my all-mountain skis, I can ski through some really bumpy terrain at high speeds, but I have to concentrate really hard on what I'm doing since I get tossed around by the changes in terrain. With these skis, they pretty much just power through everything, so for example, If I try to straightline a steep slope filled with small moguls, to me, it feels just like i'm cruising down a groomed run.

sorry for the length, when you spend years selling this stuff for a living its easy to go off a bit

I honestly never realized there was that much to know about skis. I always thought there was a lot to the skill of skiing, but not the skis themselves.

tip of the iceberg, haha. Haven't even touched on stiffness/softness, the actual shape of the skis, and materials they make them out of. Foam core vs wood core, other materials like metal and fibreglass added to the cores, in what way those materials are added, the actual construction, wheather its cap or sidewall or a mixture of both, yeah, this is why I can talk for 3 hours about nothing else other than skis with certain friends of mine, haha.
