2006 Metrons

Svanen:

Good job posting a pic of the '06 b5,

My buddy demoed it last week and he tried to describe the new look to me, but now I get it.

Bravo!!!

: I'm sure that the B5 skiis better than it looks. I was expecting something a little more from Atomic: . But who buys gear on just the looks alone?

I think they look great. Simple, yet they certainly stand out from the crowd.

Nicely done! I like 'em. Then again, I'm not one for art on my skis...

Anybody know if the 2006 ST has the same construction of the SL11?

Well, I like the blue 04-05 IX's better. Ebay, here I come.

Sure you don't want to know what's different under the paint job first?

Agreed, Nix! I'm not dazzled by the appearance of the new B:5's. I prefer the '05 look.

However, trying to find this year's B:5 in a 162 cm is like trying to find snow in the PNW. It's not happening. Clearly, Atomic hit the sweet spot with this one.

As a result, I'll be first in line for the '06 B:5's, regardless of graphics.

Looks a lot more like the M:11 now. I wondered whether the exposed Mg power channels were a good or bad idea. Easier for moisture to get iinside the ski?

I wonder if they changed any of the performance characteristics of the B5.

wizard, there's only one b5 in that picture (the one on the left), and it still has the exposed Mg power channels.

No, The Sl11m was magnesium and the Previous SL11 was titanium, these are like the old 9.16 & original 9.12 which were was hypercarbon.
The ST looks like a repacement by the dimensions & construction for the SL9
