The new wide-bodied edition to the Redster line enabled testers to aggressively take on Taos’ softer piste conditions. The pre-tensioned rod on top of the ski, called SERVOTEC, continues to impress by smoothly engaging and releasing a variety of turn shapes, but was most appreciated at high speeds. This smoothness is not for the weak-legged, however, as the ski is built on the same platform as Atomic’s FIS-legal race skis.  

STRENGTHS: Versatility, Quickness

WEAKNESS: Forgiveness
