Atomic D2 GS "cheater" 179 $250

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

SOLD

 

OK, here is the ski for those of you who insist on ignoring my advice :D and still want a cheater!.

 

2011 Atomic D2 GS. 179, 18.4m radius, Neox binders, very good condition, fresh tune and wax and ready to go.

 

Seriously though, while you all know I am not usually a fan of them, this is one of the few cheaters i would actually let you run a real GS course on or just ripping up the groomers. The D2 plate works really well on this ski.  A great deal for someone at $250 + shipping or local pick up in Tahoe

Hey Scot,

Do you still have these Atomic cheaters for sale? I was looking at the Blizzard GSR in a 181 (last years model) but this one look like it would work for me as well. Let me know if it's still available.

Thanks,

No problem. It was a smoking deal! I figured they were gone. Thanks for the reply.

Were the neoxs a fit on the d2 plate or did u have to redrill or modify the rear 2 mounting holes of the toe piece?

the D2 plate is drilled differently on the cheater ski to the FIS ski.  The cheater takes the NEOX binding and the FIS ski takes the X series (at least on the pre 2013 skis, i think on the latest iteration the cheater also requires the X series binding).  The neox does not fit the FIS ski

That makes sense... I thought I had a cheater ski but it's actually a women's FIS ski I think, 183/r23

Are the written in flex numbers done only for the FIS's or race stock?

The binding is called a Neox TL12 for Toolless! The skis comes with this binding.

 

This ski is my daily driver

Fit my neox 412 alu 88's to work with the FIS D2 X drilled plate. Just modified the toe binding mount plate to align with the x pattern. The heel is the same. I added skinnier brakes (76's). Not sure where the boot center sweet spot is but since these adjust on the fly, I don't expect issues. I did notice that the rear binding mount seems more rearward on the X type than the neoxs. The screw driver is where my boot center is for now. What do you guys think about the boot center location?
