Atomic 10.ex new lengths in 2002?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've heard it said a few times that the 10.ex is coming in shorter lengths for 2001/2002 but I don't see that anywhere on the Atomic web site or on sites that review next years skis. They all say 184 is the shortest. How does everyone know this very important pieces of info? And is it indeed true? I'm a very aggressive female skier who will be spending 5 weeks in Utah and Jackson Hole and want a versatile powder ski. Would these do the trick? I'm 5' 7" average weight. Usually ski on 178 or shorter. Would 184 be too much ski for me? Thanks for your help.

Dear Worm:

Ski Magazine's web site lists 10.ex in two shorter lengths in their reviews (5 total lengths). This forum and the referenced ski magazine web site reviews are the only two places that I have seen info on shorter 10.ex's. If it is true that 10.ex's are coming in shorter length's, then there is no question that a short 10.ex the size to get. Given your size and weight I would recommend the 10.ex if you can get a shorter ones. I skied the 10.ex quite a lot last year (also own volkl G-40 and G41s) and the 10.ex is a lot lighter and a better ski the soft snow. The Volkl's are better in the chop and on the packed but skied the 10.ex a lot in the late spring mush and the January powder at Grand Targhee and it is a great great ski. Don't believe the Atomic Web site. They may be in the dark about short 10.ex's. The Atomic web site was in the dark about long 10.20's two years ago also. If you need more help email and I'll go to the source for more info or maybe someone else in the know will post.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jim. I'm going to look into it further and maybe try calling Atomic. Thanks very much.
