183 cm Atomic SX:12 supercross Skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Where does this ski fit in the Atomic lineup?

 

I can't find any info, so either they are some low end retail junk, high end race (doubtful) or too old to matter...

 

dims are 101.5-65-87

 

 

 

 

Is that a hostage plate?

I don't read supercross on the ski, but it must be there if you call it by that model name. skier-cross skis, if that is what they are, are similar to GS skis in most respects, as that is what a cross racer needs. Atomic used numbers 7 thru 11 for the Beta core years to indicate stiffness, 11 being the stiffer end of the scale. If these say 12, it could indicate a stiff flexing GS flex and sidecut type ski.all supposition, as I don''t ski these.

I found a couple of pairs of these somewhere by accident. For the price, teh might make a good firm snow ripper.

 

I think the SX=Supercross

 

Here is the current version:


Atomic Supercross SX 12 Skis

 

 

 

Looks simaler, but the dims are different

SX12 replaced the SX11 not too long ago.  The SX11 which I have skied is a great hard snow ski, with a turn radius between SL and GS.  If you can get a deal on it, go for it.

 

183 is on the long side for these.

I was bored yesterday searching eBay for "skis" and "lowest price" a seller, elvistheskiman, had a bunch of fairly tempting looking skis for low prices and free shipping. He had these, but also had some Atomic nomad Deep Red (wtf?), and a lot of skis came with low end 3.10 bindings, so I was questioning there "race" claim.

 

Regardless, when I read the $9.95 current bid and 3hrs remaing, I didn't read the RESERVE NOT MET...
