WTF? what are wrong with my skis?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

i've got the Men's Atomic D2 VF 73 (175cm) 2010-11 Model

 

However............

 

Everywhere i look including retail stores, atomic's site, etc. I can't find the specific skis I have

 

My skis are dark grey with a silver middle down the ski but all the other skis have a red middle...?

 

everything else except the middle is the same.

Most likely a different topsheet as it was part of a lot originally destined for a different market in a different part of the world..

That seems reasonable.  Those do appear earily similar to the ones the OP described.

I would like to change my answer.  The OP didn't say he had D2 VF 73 W skis!

Just demoed these today and saw the same color scheme.  Definitely not the women specific models, probably just a different topsheet.  I've noticed the Atomic website is kind of out of whack, they don't list a lot of their skis on the USA page (gotta switch to Canada or International to see most of their double deck skis) so I guess its not all that surprising to see the ski is different than what is shown online.  But colors don't really matter, its how it skis.

Where did you buy the skis.  If you got them from a mass merchandiser then there is a good chance that the ski is a 'lock-out' model designed strictly for the retailer you purchased from.  You will never find it anywhere else, nor listed on Atomic's website.
