Please consult this chart as well.

“In classical technique competitions, the maximum pole length must not exceed 83% of the competitor’s body height. In free technique competitions, the maximum pole length must not exceed 100% of the competitor’s height. The body height is measured with ski boots on from a flat surface, to the top of the uncovered head. The pole length is measured from the bottom of the pole to the highest attachment of the strap. All measurements will be rounded to the nearest centimetre as follows: less than 0.5 cm will be rounded down and 0.5 cm and above will be rounded up.”
