Hi
I'm thinking about getting a Glide, I want to try one but I cant, just have to buy and freight one in :(

Ive got shot legs 80cm (31inch) inseam, skinny butt.

I did't like to bucket in the Elite as the hump was too high and mainly too long. My legs used to basically lay along the hump from the bum to middle of my calves.

Anyone know if they still use the same size hump?

Oh and is the Glide definitely faster on flat water over long distance than the Elite, or is it basically the same? Just advertising hype?
Thanks
Rudie

The hump is pretty high on the Glide. You may want to check out the Elite S, where the hump has been lowered, and the foot area dropped slightly as well which increases stability.
I cant comment on speed in the flat of Glide vs Elite as I haven't paddled an Elite - but I can tell you the Glide is damn quick.

I have also short legs (80cm}and have try lots of skis, in the glide you can feel the potential speed but wasn't able to push hard because of the high hump.
Recently purchased the Elite S and fits nicely
And if you want numbers in flatwater sprint in Glide I was 15.3 km\h max speed and with Elite 16.9 km\h
Out of topic Think uno max also fits me well

maybe not a good choice with trying. Which isn't likely in my area
