Atomic Punx 2013
i tink i'm going to buy this skis but i'm not sure about the height. i'm 172 for 57kg and i don't know which would fit me better between the 164 and the 173. any advice?
How proficient of a skier are you? If you've been skiing for a while I would go with the 173s. I recently got longer skis than I used to have and love it. It will feel a little odd for a run or two, and then you will get a feel for the new skis and be able to charge harder because they will be more stable for you. At the same time, if you're newer to skiing it will be harder to drive a big ski than it will a small one.
If you can find a free or cheap ski demo, perhaps try demoing a longer ski before you buy one.
i'm a very good skier so i think i'll go on the 173
Exactly what I was going to say. I'm about 5'10 and I ski the 182 which are about the same height as me and they're great.
They're really light and soft, so they are not too hard to handle.
how is the durability with this years punx?
RIP SARAH AND CR!!
top sheet is a little weak. other then that ive been riding them for about 2 weeks and there solid
you should detune and/or dull your edges down. sidewall ski + factory race preparation will lead to chipping.
I usually bring a knife to a gun fight. Sometimes a sharp one.
yeah i just want to know how the edges and skis hold up, every ski's top sheet seems to chip no matter what
havent had a problem with them yet but ive only been riding them for like 2 weeks at most. edges are solid, and the bases are stong.
