Atomic GSX

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me anything about this ski? I've heard it is a hybrid between the GS models and the SX models. Then, I was told it was simply the SX-11 with a new top-skin. The GSX is not in the current Atomic catalog and a call to Atomic in NJ got me nowhere... yet I keep hearing about it. Anyone got the inside on this? It seems like the perfect Master's GS ski. All info is much appreciated.

Gsx F/u

The GSX was a race dept 17m GS ski from Atomic made last year intended for strong J4-3s and masters racers as a step down from their full on FIS GS ski and a significant step up from their in line ( consumer) GS ski. It came in a variety of flexes....all with a FIS base but with more or less std beta construction ( vs. vertical sidewall, etc FIS skis). It was more shaped , and when set up correctly, faster than the usual Atomic GS. This years (current) in line GS ski is a defanged version of the GSX.
My J3 son had a pair as did I...they're a hoot...and you can find the occasional pair at dealers who have access to Atomics race product...but be careful...check the flexes...there's a reason in some cases why those pairs didn't end up on the hill.

Great info, tbird!
You mean the occasinal pairs available were too soft or too stiff?
Are the dimensions the same as this year´s retail GS:11?
Thanks
