B Ride 11.20 vs. 10.20

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me the differences between the two. On 9.22 now and I am wondering if the 11.20 will have the float of the 9.22 and the energy of the 10.20.

keep 'em waxed

The measurements of the new 01/02 Ride 10.20 and 11.20 are very close to the Ride 9.22, with the waist being 2mm narrower. For stiffness and performance, the 00/01 Ride 10.20 would fit between the 01/02 10.20 and 11.20.

10.20 - Carbon Power Channels, Texalium 100
11.20 - Titanium Power Channels, Texalium 200

Betaracer what is the beta ride "11.20" i demoed the Beta Ride 10.20 which was titanium and then there is the 10.20 EX which i didnt try (powder ski). Also tried the Beta Ride 9.22sl and i saw the 9.20 which i think they are discontinuing? Is the 11.20 a new ski i havent heard about? I checked the Atomic web page and they dont show a 11.20 under any catagory. If this is a new ski did they change the ride 10.20 and what is the 11.20 like, is it stiffer or what? <FONT size="1">

Of course you won't find the 11.20 on the website. It is a ski for next season. If you re-read the post, you should notice 01/02, which is short for 2001/2002. 2001 is the present year, 2002 will be the year after December 31, 2001. Since most ski seasons in the Northern Hemisphere start in November, it will still be the year 2001 when next season takes effect, and extend through 2002.

Hope this helps to clarify things.

Beta, will both the new 10 and 11 feature the cxc plate for binding mounts? I have demoed several skis this year and am still waiting to buy. The new sidecuts really sound appealing and I have enjoyed most of the atomics I have tried. Hope they are in stores soon to check out!

The new Ride 10.20 and 11.20, along with the Carv 10.16 and 11.16 will feature an updated version of the ski to binding interface called 'Chassis'. The new Beta lobes are higher, and closer to the edges, creating a deeper cleavage. Like the Charger plates, they will only accept Atomic bindings.

Sounds really good. Roughly 110-70-100 and slightly softer than the current model of the 10.20? I don't ski hard enough to get the most out of the current model and am looking for more sidecut. The only atomic I did not particularly care of was the ride 8.20 with it's narrower tail, but the rest that I've tried were fantastic! Any idea when they will be available? Deeper "cleavage", sounds good too. <FONT size="1">

Thanks for all your info, especially about the new 10.20. This sounds like the ski for me.

I'm looking to buy the 01/02 10.20 but can't decide between the 170 and 180. I'm 5'9'' and 160 pounds, and am a fairly advanced skier that skis pretty aggressively. Unfortunately, I can olny afford one ski, so this will have to work for me on the deep POW days too. Any advice?

180. I just know. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Yesterday, I took the plunge and pre-ordered a pair of 180cm 10.20's for next season (I'm in NZ). I demoed lots of skiis this winter, and the 00/01 10.20 170cm just blew me away, haven't grinned like that on skiis for years.

After lots of reading I choose the new 10.20 over the 11.20, based on my stats which sound very similar to you SnowDawg - 5'9", 150-155lb, advanced (20+ years on ungroomed club skifields) and reasonably fit for a 42 year-old. I like to ski agressively sometimes, but don't want to have to be at 100% all day long any more.

The thing is I still have the option to change both model and/or length before final purchase. I'd really appreciate any comments re suitability for me of 10.20 vs 11.20, and 170 vs 180, as I don't know if I'll get on a demo pair before I have to commit around June next year.

I imagine ski conditions in NZ are often similar to the Pacific NW? We ski a lot of ungroomed terrain, often moist / heavy / wind affected, plus ice / crud / bumps / chutes / groomers / occasionally 30cms of nice powder, you name it. I like a ski that lets me have a go at it all. Currently on 188 G31 which feels at least 10cm to long, and is a bit stiff for my weight, but I can still make them work when I'm in the mood. I was a slow learner on shaped ski length - don't want to get it wrong again.
