Atomic Crimson Ti or Atomic a Redster GS ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am a 44 year old advanced eastern skier, who's skied since the 70's. I am 5'11 165. I ski fast (> 50 mph) and hard on steeps & groomer plus I like to venture off trail into the bumpy crud. I like to ski the blacks at the big eastern area (whiteface, gore, pico etc...). I've been on Atomic SX 11 at 160cm for the past 5 yrs and the sx10's before that. I love the stability of these skies even at the very maneuverable length of 160. I know they are technically short for my dimensions but I loved there feels. Unfortunately, they are skied out and I am in analysis paralysis about whether I want fatter more versatile crimson's or the Redsters. Will the Redsters be as versatile as my SX-11's. They were tough in the bumps but they could be handled at 160cm. I would welcome thoughts and suggestions on both the redster sand the crimsons and at which length....... Wish I could just buy another brand new pair on SX-11's

Man if you are skiing over 50 mph I would take a hard look at some real downhill skis.  I wish I had the room on my slopes for those speeds; of course I would probably crap myself.

Iny123, have a look at the Dynastar Chrome series.

I have demoed the SX10 and SX11 a few times.

If you enjoyed the SX11 and ski fast, then the current skis that you should be looking at are.... 

 

Kästle RX12 - haven't skied but by all accounts it should do the trick, probably closest in feel

Stockli Laser SX   Also based on reviews - generally favours lighter skiers

Fischer RC4 WC RC Pro  Will feel lighter and not as solid but can be trusted - you will get used to it.
