The Redster Doubledeck is the ultimate recreational racer from Atomic, a damp, heavy, precise, edgy, deep-dish carving machine for the highest speeds and hardest snow. It features Atomic's signature Doubledeck construction, with its free-floating secondary carbon-rich flex- and vibration-control arm mounted with rubber bushings atop the topsheet, where it adds extra high-speed performance without impeding roundness of flex. It's sold with either a sturdy 12- or super-strong 16-DIN Atomic XT binding. The Redster collection includes three models of race-inspired carvers for hard-snow technicians who love speed and g forces. They're built for maximum heft, dampness, edge grip and high-speed stability-performance just shy of an actual FIS-legal race ski, with a bit of all-mountain versatility for recreational carvers. All are built on dense wood cores with metal reinforcement for high-speed calm and powerful sidewall constructions for optimal hard-snow edge grip. The top of the line Doubledeck 3.0 is traditionally cambered for maximum edge bite tip to tail; the XT models feature a tiny bit of tip rocker for slightly looser, featherable Ligety-like turn entries. All feature a sidecut radius that splits the difference between slalom and GS (XT stands for Cross Turn)-ideal for the typical beer-league course set.
