Some skis just feel like home from the moment you get off the lift. Such is the IQ Max. No adjustments needed; no quirks to get used to; just comfortable, predictable performance that lets you enjoy your day. In terms of skier input, it favors power over finesse. And there are more forgiving skis in the category. But the Atlas loves speed, isn’t too picky about snow conditions, and obediently does what’s asked. “A true multitool; inspires
confidence in every type of terrain,” said Couperthwait.
