The new Vantage 107 C W is a continuation of Atomic’s quest to produce the lightest and strongest gear in the Multiverse. The addition of space-age Carbon Tank Mesh made the ski so stiff that “burly” was a common refrain. Most appreciated its muscle when plowing through afternoon chop, but a few smaller testers complained about a stiff tail that wouldn’t release (likely due to a long test length). Best piloted by turbo-boost-loving experts in soft snow.
