The new Cloud Eleven debuts as the new top end of the Cloud series. It's aimed at expert women who love to carve at high speeds on-piste, with an edgy, powerful full-sidewall construction. With its 71-mm waist (it's Atomic's narrowest women's ski), it's the quickest Cloud from edge to edge and has the surest edge grip on hard snow and Eastern ice. It's sold with a sturdy 10-DIN Atomic XT binding The Cloud series features just three models of narrow-waisted groomed-snow carving skis with deep, turny sidecuts, but they cover a broad range of target abilities and prices. All are designed and sold as systems (ie. with bindings). All have just a touch of tip rocker to loosen up turn entries and/or allow a little drift. (The top-of-the-line Eleven has just a slight amount; the other two a bit more.) Sidecuts are tight and slalomesque, ranging from 11 meters to 13 meters.
