Testers thought this ski performed like a sports car—fast and touchy. With Atomic’s Austrian heritage, it’s no surprise this is among the most precise carvers in the category. It slices up even the shiniest ice neatly and efficiently, yet its beefy tip and tail stay afloat in fluff. This Autobahn-ready speedster does take some driving skills, however, so those who prefer a Lincoln Town Car should look elsewhere. “Very tenacious edge-hold. This ski is tough as nails,” said Moscarella.
Short, precise turns on firm snow.
Relaxing and taking in the scenery.
