Hi Ladies and Gents, I have a 172 cm Völkl Deacon and looking to buy a bag for it.

My question is with the Völkl Expandable Ski Bag (170-195), does the extra slack (which I guess is the blue space below) remain fully expanded to 195cm when expanded? Meaning there is extra space of 23cm (195cm bag length minus 172cm ski length) when expanded? Can the extra slack compress to the length of the ski?

My other question is with the non-expandable 170cm one. Is there any way I can fit a 172cm ski in it? Is there extra fabric slack or stretch for another 2 cm or is it a "hard" 170cm?

Thanks in advance for replying.

Can't see enough detail in that photo to know. My expandable Head ski bag unzips to expand, but you can zip it back up, works nicely for either my 175 AX or 185 Enforcer.
You can probably fit a 172 into it at 170, but unless there's at least a couple of cm of slack and/or really good padding at the top & bottom you risk damage if the bag takes a hard knock on either end.
You might want to think about the Db bag shown at the bottom of the page on the link (IF you can handle the nomenclature).
