By the way retarded is the correct spelling!
As you all know I am not affliated with Atomic. I agree with the post change whether it was Atomic or any other entiety.
there is no proof whatsoever of any intentional deceit on Atomic's part and the vast majority (in fact everyone but the original poster) has had the opposite experience.
I have been treated more then fairly by Atomic for many years. Anytime anything was wrong (including a bent ski) hardly their fault, they replaced it no questions asked.
Mu older son lost one of his Brand new B5's the 2nd day he skied on them in extremely deep snow in the north backcountry at Crystal Mt., Wa
I called Atomic and they happend to have a 172cm B5 with a Neox 6.14 already mounted from a pair that had 1 damaged ski. They sold me the ski with binding for $90.00. Granted it was a 04/05 model (his skis were 05/06). But he thinks it's cool to have 2 different graphics.
Hardly a company that should have sleazy associated with their name floating all over the web.
We have numerous (over 20 pair and have owned many more) my boys raced on them each for about 6 years and we never had any kind of problem with any of the skis in terms of longevity or durability.
More then I can say for some other brands.
My son bent or delaminated 7 pair of Volkl's in one season when he was 13 and racing. It happened to every pair in a race course or training. He probably only weighed 110 lbs back then.
Volkl replaced every pair on warranty!
Since switching to Atomic we did not have one pair of his race skis (he usually had 6 pair at all times) 2 Identical GS, 2 identical SL, 1 SG & 1 DH. have an issue. At the end of his race carrer he weighed 208 and was 6' 1".
the one pair that bent were a pair of my SX11 supercross and again were repalced on warranty!
And he skied many of those years 80 days in a season! Again not 1 problem with any of those Atomic ski or bindings
