Salomon Equipe 3V Powerline +Z12 or Atomic Race ST

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm going to buy one of these skis soon. Which one should I go for? Salomons are like 200 bucks more expensive in my country.

Besides the fact thier website annoys me for some reason. I'm bias to Atomic for true race stock or even "soft" race skis.

You might get more answers, and more complete answers on a Canadian site.   

Skinny Salomons are very few and very far between here.

Those Salomon "race" skis are a joke for anything other than free skiing.

But if I buy the Salomons, I will be getting a "real" race ski. I would looove to buy the top Atomic FIS race skis but they are way too expensive and I can't afford them at the moment. What would you do if you were me? Or another option would be the Atomic "Race TI SL" which is a bit better than "Race ST" but still not FIS.

Fischer WC SL

Why limit yourself to Salomon and Atomic?
Why not Fischer or Stockli?
Are you trying to decide between the 3V and the Race Ti Sl? 
Are you set on a Slalom ski?  How about a GS or compromise with the 24 hrs?

My trainer owns a ski gear shop, so I kind of have to buy from him. :) And he told me that I needed a slalom set. (I have always rented skis for 12 years. So first buying experience.)

We can say, I'm pretty much stuck with these options: (Price lowest to highest with around 200 bucks between each)

- Atomic Race ST
- Atomic Race TI SL
- Salomon Equipe 3V Powerline +Z12
- Atomic Race SL D2 W

You should ask your trainer to arrange for you to test at least two pairs.

If you have the means to get them. The Race D2 SL will blow all the others away. Better stay on top of them though. They have tons of power. Seems like your best alternative would be the Race SL Ti.
