Atomic M11 2008 vs. 2007
« on: November 26, 2007, 01:45:56 pm »
Atomic changed the graphics on their M11's for 2008 to a rocking orange and white.  The 2007 graphics were a lame blue/aqua/silver.

My question is, other than the graphics, have the skis changed dramatically?  The 2007 reviews were great.  What few 2008 reviews I found were luke warm.

I called Atomic and they said the ski should ski the same from '07 to '08.

Has anyone tried the '08?  Is it the same as the '07?

I loved the '07 but have not yet tried the '08.

I am about to buy the '08 and would appreicate any comments.  Thannks.

Kyle:

I haven't skied them.  However, it wouldn't be the first time that people are so enamored with testing new technology that the reviews of skies that haven't changed seem lukewarm.  Unless you are as style concious as Ron (i.e. VERY) then just buy last years and accept the graphics.  Price will be better and the ski is absolutely a known value.  Otherwise, I would say there is a 99% chance that nothing changed except the graphics, especially since that is what the Atomic contact claims.
