2005 Atomic M2 Tron XI - Page 3

post #61 of 64
Any other thoughts on the Metron?? They seem to be the most talked about new ski for 2005, and Muy Kudos to Atomic for coming out with the answer to a persistant quest: Skis that can handle deep uneven snow AND still turn like a sports car and have fully manuverability.

If they fashion a flat version for the die hard randonee/tele market ( I have 2 such hardcore amigos that must use Naxo or fritschi binders or die) they will conquet the world!!!!

Amen Atomic, and Hail to Bode!!

I'm going to take all the hoopla for the Metron with a grain of salt. Last spring this board was full of praise and anticipation for the Volkl 724 Pro. It would handle powder, crud, ice, high speeds, etc. with no problem. I know several people that have the 724 Pro and love it for all conditions but I wasn't impressed with it in light powder, thought it got knocked around too much in heavy crud and hated it on ice. While the 724 Pro is a solid, versital ski it never lived up to its expectations.

Metron= Tighter turning radius, quicker edge to edge and more float.

what are the characteristics of the 11? Lightness, edge-2-edge quickness, dampess,rebound, turning at slow speed, stability? I see a lot of priase but I don't see a description of how they ski.
