The Vantage 80Ti W just wants to lap groomers. Makes sense, since this ski was built from the inside out to deliver on-piste performance for ladies of varying abilities. A poplar wood core makes this ski feel light, but Atomic’s Titanium Tank Mesh and Energy Backbone technology reinforce the ski along the edges and underfoot to provide surprising stability at speed for such a featherweight. The downside to this piste-specific construction: The ski isn’t too willing to switch gears or branch out from carving. 

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESSES: Playfulness, Forgiveness
