Package 1, includes the Tyrolia ATTACK11 standard step-in FULL Release bindings and ski brake. (The above video shows the Gaspo GC701S binding which is no longer available). DIN 3-11
Package 2. Tyrolia SP12 Rental step -in FULL Release bindings and ski brake. DIN 4-12
Most customers tend to choose the standard package 1. Its what I personally use as its the cheapest. This option gives you the standard step in quick release bindings. Option 2 is a rental binding upgrade. They release in the same way, look very similar, only difference is that the track is much longer and so has the ability to adjust the ski boot size very quickly, so its most suitable for customers who share skis or have property in the mountains and want to leave a set of skis that most people can borrow and therefore adjust on the fly.
If choosing Package 1, send us your ski boot size with the order, otherwise we will send the package unfitted.

Short ski shops opinion............
This Adult short ski from Austrian Ski Company Gaspo is "bang on" and loaded with features for this season. We only have limited stocks, so don't hesitate, they maybe gone.
1. The "Short Rocker" has a very wide toe for its length and a fairly wide tail, giving it exceptional cornering and stability on all terrain including piste, powder and even slush..
2. The Twin Rocker shape gives exceptional floatation and maneuverability in all conditions.
3. The Tyrolia release binding has given skiers who want a step-in binding the perfect package.
4. At 8.9m, this ski has a tight turning radius, so its a fantastic ski for intermediate skiers who have issues turning on steep slopes; just lay it on its edges and it will whip round very quickly, so you are not staring straight downhill for very long. Its so good, its my personal choice too!!
The bottom line.
What can we say, except If we had a wish list of features for a short ski, this baby has got them. So its got plenty going for it and we are sure it will be one of our best sellers this season. I have it and wouldn't swap it for any other ski.
Discount poles offer with this ski too, see poles dept

Reviewer: Rick Paris ( Director at Shortksishop.com) from Essex
As this is a very new ski, I have reviewed this ski to give customers an idea of what to expect. I used this ski for 7 days in Val D'Isere, France April 2014. The conditions in resort we suprisingly good for the 2nd last week of the season and we could still just about ski to the village. This little ski was my only equipment all week. I skied both glaciers and virtually every run that was open throughout Espace Killy. This little ski performed like a dream. Being very wide at the tip and tail gave it extra performace in slush and in the soft off-piste conditions. The Rocker part of the ski gave me terrific turning performance on all grades of piste for such a wide ski. i was carving short turns and swings with ease over varied condiitons and terrain. I was a little exhausted by the time I got to the bottom of the "Face" (long black descent into the village, part of the 1992 Olympic downhill course)) but it is very steep and the moguls were about 2-3 foot high with very poor snow lower down. But that was more about the conditions of the snow and my fitness rather than the ski. The fact I could ski this extreme slope at all and in reasonable style, rather than just survive, told me all I needed to know. This is a ski for all skiers, novice or experts. It offers so much assistance that you can actually enjoy steep runs rather than shy away or ski them through gritted teeth. I simply cannot ski steep runs with a long ski, I am not that good. Enough said. Its brilliant. Forget its only 130 long and try a pair. These skis are only available in very limited numbers, so don't hang around for too long.

Several years on from my first review, my opinion has not changed. I own several short skis and blades and have had the pleasure of testing many more in my job at The Short Ski Shop.Com. If there is a finer short ski anywhere in the world, it must be a hell of a piece of kit to top this one. As far as I am concerned "This is simply the best".

I skied on this great GPO short rocker skis with Tyrolia bindings in various conditions at Perisher in Australia and loved them over a period of 5 weeks and have given them a 5 star rating. I loved skiing them on corduroy groomers even icy runs. They handled cruddy snow with ease as well. They are great to do pure carving, pivot or slip turns as well performing 180s and 360s. I did manage to ski a whole run backwards on these skis. Having such a short radius was a bonus as well as a confidence boost on narrow catwalks and runs. I managed to ski consistently in the upper 50 km/h (averaging around 57km/h) range with a top speed of 64.3 km/h. I purchased these to have fun on but they ended up being my main and preferred skis.
