I enquired Atomic on the subject:
hello, I had the pleasure of testing the R11 alpine skis early this year and
I loved them. I would like to buy them but cant find them in your product
range. I was wondering what kind of model you replaced the R11 with and
how that mode differs from the R11.
The R11 was replaced this season with the M11. The M11 is a whole new ski. It is a cruiser, like the R11, but because of it's really wide sidecut it will float and cut through crude and powder with alot more ease. In addition, it will make bery tight truns, which the R11 could not do. We designed the metron series(M series)skis as a do all ski.
Thank you for you inquiry.

Still I'm a bit confused it being just as good on piste. I mean, It's wider.
