We say

The new 2V uses very similar technology to the Atomic, they essentially are manufactured by the same company. This is another ski which is designed for the amateur club skier and for skiers looking for maximum confidence at high speed. This is another smooth ski which feels comfortable to use at high speeds. It grips well and gives great control and stability in GS turns, it feels secure and doesn’t throw you around, perfect for the keen carving enthusiast.
