Atomic Theory

post #1 of 13

Anyone been on these yet? They look interesting to me. Playful, forgiving, no metal, 95mm waisted all mountain ski. Kind of a lazy day ski....

Lazy day ski...............yup!

 

I might add..............lazy day with a hangover and it snowed yesterday ski................biggrin.gif

 

OK, seriously now.............it felt A LOT like the 2011 Snoop............like...............a lot.

 

Depending upon one's goals, not necessarily a bad thing............I chose not to carry that model this year. (Couldn't figure out a customer profile for it)

Were the pair you skied on the "team" line or the rear "conventional" mount line?

I dunno Jim,  that sounds like it could be a big market niche to me with some of the Bay brigade,  might do even better at Killington......smile.gif

I didn't axe but a ski mounted near center always skis crummy for my tastes so I'd pull a WAG and say the latter.

Longtime reader of Epicski but first post.

 

Just bought these at the beginning of the season.  Got out on them at Killington the week before Christmas.  Despite the lack of real snow these boards were plain awesome.  Edge hold not as great as my AC50s, but obviously these were made with completely different goals in mind.  Did great on hardpack, soft slush (temps were in the 40s), soft bumps.  Got them out for one run on my last day there when it actually snowed and they rocked.  As others have said, they are forgiving and laid back.  Didn't get to try them in the woods though.

I tried them earlier this season and what some would call "forgiving and laid back", I would describe as "gutless and boring".  They didn't suck, but they are so far the least favorite ski I demoed this year.

I tried them yesterday and would agree with what was said. My take was not great edge hold, not quick turning, very mello and easy going. Nothing seemed to affect them and I could go really fast on them and feel stable. I would call them smooth and stable, a little boring, they absorb everything and nothing unsettles them. You could call them "isolating" and takes a licking and keeps on ticking, or boring. Depends on what you want. I had them on man made snow that was clumpy with some hard boiler plate underneath. Didn't like them on the hard boil, but felt pretty nice on the clumps and packed snow. I had a pair of 188cm or something close to that. If you wanted to go fast and make GS turns they were really easy to ski. I drive a Toyota Avalon and these skis reminded me of my car. I really want to own a Ferrari, but I have a family.
