U16 Equipment List
Helmet -A certified race helmet is mandatory. As well we suggest a detachable face guard for slalom.

Shinners – These are worn over the ski pants or skin suits to protect the shins and knees when skiing slalom.
Speed Suits - Speed suits are not mandatory however most K2 athletes are using them.
Skis - K2 athletes will compete in 4 types of races. Slalom, Giant Slalom (“GS”), Kombi and Super G. At this stage, K2 athletes need a pair of slalom skis for Kombi and Slalom and GS skis for GS and Super G.
