How the fuck does that extra edge in the middle of the base do anything!? The problem that i get from rails is my sidewall/cap pulls away from the edges or my edges breaking, not taking core shots in the middle of my ski.
The Atomic extra edges run parellel to each edge about half a centimetre in.
The Elan MO2 is the ski with the edge in the middle of the base. I rode them as my park ski last year and while I agree that the edge does nothing at all for durability and protection, they are sick skis and more people should be riding them if they could get over their image problem.
