ATOMIC REDSTER FIS DOUBLEDECK 3.0 GS M 195/35 AS MASTER GS & SG SKI

post #1 of 5

Hi,

 

I am master competitor and I am offered to buy for good price REDSTER FIS DOUBLEDECK 3.0 GS M 195/35 ski (http://www.atomic.com/en/Products/alpine/skis/fis-race/REDSTER_FIS_DOUBLEDECK_3.0_GS_M/AA0025228.aspx?filter=).

 

I am 190 cm (6,2") and 104 kgs (230 lbs) and for GS master competition now have ATOMIC REDSTER RS DOUBLEDECK 3.0 GS 191/27 ski. (http://www.atomic.com/en/Products/alpine/skis/fis-race/REDSTER_RS_DOUBLEDECK_3.0_GS/AA0025236.aspx?filter=

 

For SG I now use old Atomic FIS SG W 201 ski which have similar turn radius as REDSTER FIS DOUBLEDECK 3.0 GS M (35 m) so my question is has anyone used FIS GS M ski for master SG races and will this ski be also good for GS races in master competition.

 

Thanks,

Hogar, I have never skied with the new mens GS skis so I cant give any advice based on personal experiance but I use a pair of mens 220 R>44 SG skis for SG events when the course is set as a proper FIS SG. For such events and speeds, 70-80km/h, the old 191 R27 GS skis feels way too unstable but if the course is set tighter, then the SG skis quickly become too much. I guess the new mens GS ski would be a good compromize. The most common SG skis at our events have been the slightly shorter womens SG skis. I would say go for it but dont count on skiing any Masters GS races with them.

Thanks tdk6 for the info.

 

I forgot to mention that for really speed SG course I also use Atomic DH 215/49 2011/12 which is very simmilar to new SG M ski, just a few cm shorter but in Europe this kind of SG course is set very rarely.

I use 35m 195cm Nordica GS skis for the few masters races that I do, and have no issues, but I'm also still competing at the FIS level and am 23 years old... I can tell you that they are easier to turn in masters course sets than FIS ones, even though the radius is typically tighter in masters courses. It all depends on the offset of the course though.

As for using it as a two event ski, it all depends on the hills that you run the SG's on, and if you feel comfortable running the same base edge for both SG and GS. I use a .5 degree base on my GS skis, and a .5 or 1 on my SG skis depending on the hill (1 degree for the flatter hills like Okemo, Gore, Attitash, Mount Sainte Anne, etc, and .5 for places like Sugarloaf, Whiteface, LeMassif, Apex, etc). All of our masters SG's are run on relatively flat hills and are run pretty straight, so I haven't used my GS skis for any of them.
