Atomic C Series 9

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was given a pair of these, brand new, 160 cm.  Was very excited until I discovered that they should have come with their own bindings, which they did not.  I'm an internediate to advanced skier, 160 lbs 5'7.  I ski mostly in the northeast on a pair of 10 year old Dynastars, also 160cm.  

 

My questions for this forum:

 

1) Is this a good ski?  Should I consider using it for myself?

2) Is obtaining bindings that fit the skis even possible?  If so, is it cost effective or should I just be looking at new skis instead?

 

I did email Atomic but have not heard back from them.  A little hesitant to call their (Austrian) phone line!

 

Thanks for any help!

My questions for this forum:

 

1) Is this a good ski?  Yes.  Should I consider using it for myself?  Maybe, but probably not due response in #2.

2) Is obtaining bindings that fit the skis even possible?  Integrated bindings?  Most likely not.  If so, is it cost effective or should I just be looking at new skis instead?  You may have to find another ski.

If I recall correctly, the C9 was made somewhere between 2003 to 2005.  The binding is integrated.  If the integration plate can be removed to expose a flat mounting surface, then you can add a standard flat mount binding.  Take the skis to a ski shop, and have the ski tech verify if that can be done.
