Pros: They love the hard pack and ice, alot work on soft snow at low speeds.
Cons: Perfect race ski, not for the faint of heart. You need power and skill to work these skis.
I love Atomic, I love the GS12s. These are definitely BIG BOY Skis. They are really fun GS skis. If you like speed you will love these skis. I own the GS12s, LT11s, and an old pair of Stomps in 186. Next to DH skis, this is as fast as you can get.
