Hi Alastair, Atomic recommends a 3.6 bit for their wood core skis.
Hi MaVo, yes more are on the way, but we don't have a hard date yet. In the meantime, you can check out the B&D plates.
Unfortunately not Mike, these plates have a 3-hole heel pattern whereas the 2.0 is a new 4-hole pattern. I'm told a 2.0 plate is in the works, but no word on the availability yet, or how it works with the brakes. The toe plate will work however, so you can get some adjustability in a somewhat unorthodox manner if the flatter ramp angle works for you. Good question about the flat mode + brakes, that could be related to the unofficial-ness. Will see what I can find out, but I might not have a definitive a...
Hi Dave, we haven't yet published skin weights due to the difficulty of establishing comparable numbers. They ship with significantly different glue-protectors (which are messy to remove and re-apply). They have varying amounts of material that can be trimmed (thus comparing pre-cut to trim-to-fit is apples to oranges). Some like these Atomics don't have the included tail clips attached out of the box, and are meant to be shortened significantly in some cases. That said, these weigh 714g (25oz) for a pa...
Señor Blobo, it's hard to infer failure rates knowing only the basic construction process or materials involved. All can fail and/or be manufactured with durability in mind. I will point out the Guide toes are materially lighter than the Radical toes. The latter are 33 grams / 1.2 ounces / 30% heavier. With that in mind, it's impressive that Plum has achieved comparable durability. They say they haven't seen a wing failure since making a change in March 2013.
