SPM Junior 27 Gate
Progression in gate shaft length, or height “off the snow” (OTS) is proven to improve technique and confidence in young ski racers.
The 60″ OTS height is now the required gate height for USSA U14 and underage classes. All JR27 gates feature a patented 27mm (1.06″) diameter shaft with SPM’s new Panel Height Mark (on blue and red shafts), a strong polycord hinge, Hi-Vis protection Sleeves (yellow for red gate shafts and orange for blue gate shafts, and your choice of BrushGrip™ base in two lengths: 26cm (10.2″) or 34cm (13.4″). Gates available for online purchase are equipped with the 34cm (13.4″) bases. Please call 800-555-0593 for other base options.
SPM green and orange gate shafts of any diameter and length are NOT approved for competition at any level. The ONLY exception to this is hi-vis orange which is used for DH/SG events at the FIS level and above and in GS when the Jury deems the color is appropriate or needed to highlight terrain that could be problematic for the athlete safety.
