SG race skis, $125 each, incl. bindings: Rossi 195cm 5-14din & Atomic 209cm 10-18din

[SOLD]

Details here in the pictures and captions:

The $125 price for each pair (including bindings) does not of course include shipping, which would be pricey: 

  • Atomic weighs 19lb 2oz (more than my five lightest alpine touring setups), so probably pushing ~22lb w/ box.
  • Rossi weighs 13lb 8oz (still than my four lightest alpine touring setups), so probably pushing ~16lb w/ box.

Alternatively, if you’re driving through I-91 for VT or NH, stopping by our house in Mass will take you only ~15 minutes total out of your way.

[SOLD]

Bump back up to the top -- also willing to sell the bindings separately.

Rossignol 195cm now sold, but Atomic 209cm still available, along with their Atomic 1018 bindings.

I also realized that I can stay under the length+girth cut-off by sliding the Atomic bindings off their tracks – the mounting tracks will still be screwed down into the brass-threaded Vist plates, and all you need to do is slide the bindings back on (with a picture tutorial from me). So max shipping charge to anywhere in the lower 48 still looks like under $40 (plus $125 for skis and bindings for probably around low $160s total depending on where you live).

Complete description follows below:

Atomic 209cm "DH/SG" skis, although I'm pretty sure it has the >33m SG radius (as opposed to the >45m DH radius that IIRC was marked on the otherwise identical topskin DH skis).
Purchased "new-old-stock" and then used by me five times in 2007 & 2008:
- Three very brief "training" sessions on my own.
- One SG race (Stowe Schuss).
- One DH training session (Sugarbush).
At my weight of ~145lb:
- Seemed just barely turny enough for a relatively easy SG.
- Absolutely confidence-inspiring stability in a DH corridor despite my own terror at that speed (Spring Fling straightaway at Sugarbush).

Atomic 1018 bindings were purchased used, pulled off some race skis that seemed to have almost no use.
Mounted on the predrilled very solid VIST plate (not the plate that Atomic put on some versions of this ski, looking more like a part from a kids toy).
Currently set up for 305mm Dobermann.
Toe can be set in one of five positions, and the connection to the floating heel has a huge range of adjustment.
The all-metal heel cups are totally different from the 512 & 614 versions of the Atomic binding at the time.

Bump for a rainy (and sleety) day (sigh...).

I still have my old 203 and 205 GS skis and a set of 200 SL skis so the chance of using them is slim even though they look like a really good deal.

 

Cheers,

Cheers,

The skis I have for sale have nothing in common (other than a length differential in the single-dig cm's) with your early-1990s SL & GS skis.

(BTW, no need to let everyone know about all the gear listings that you are *NOT* interested in, since that would take up a lot of your time.)

Fully aware of that, it was an indirect bump.  Nice skis wish I could add them though, all the same.  BTW the 203's are older and straighter and extremely fast in a straight line (pushing the SG and DH speeds of the day when I was younger and had less common sense)

 

Cheers,
