    Atomic Backland 107 Dimensions: 138-107-125 Radius: [email protected] Size tested: 189 Design: All New I wasn’t looking forward to testing this. I had a rough intro to Atomic’s revamped all-mountain Vantage series, and was concerned that that they had taken what was basically a descendant of the...

    Individual Review Long term review: Atomic Vantage 97 Ti

    Full disclosure; I have a bias toward Atomic and have worked with the local rep off and on for about 7 years. There is a reason though; I love what they do. I don't get free stuff or anything for praising them. Size tested: 188 I'll start off by saying I never fell in love with the Vantage...

    ...before I put bindings on my brand new Brahmas...

    ...before I put bindings on my brand new Brahmas... I'm having second thoughts. I have heard they are great skis and they aren't quite as stiff as they use to be... but then I keep reading that they are stiff and require to you always be on top of your game... Sometimes I just want a...

    Blizzard Brahma, or, will my quiver overlap too much?

    Hey skipeople, I unloaded all of my last season skis at a ski swap this weekend, so I'm on to my changes for this year. I'm thinking a quiver like this: Frontside/bumps/carving ski. I'm not a great carver and just an ok bumps skier, my main goal for this season is to be the best skier I can...

    Skis that our heroes ski

    Other threads about how we choose our skis, along with some brand recognition chatter has me wondering if the old adage "Win on Sunday, buy on Monday" still holds true in some walks of life. Examples Do we take a second look at Head skis because Lindsey Vonn or Ted Ligety, or Bode Miller won...

    Atomic Vantage 86 C Dimensions: 123-86-106.5 Radius: [email protected] Sizes: 157, 165, 173, 181 Size tested: 173 Design: All New This is a great one-ski quiver candidate that turns really well when you want to but leaves you alone if you don’t. It has a nice shape and flex pattern for fun in the...

    Masters Racer GS Ski (Head vs Atomic)

    Hey Guys, New poster here - Hailing from Canada (Ski out of Ottawa, eastern Quebec). I've really enjoyed the discussions I've been reading regarding skis, whether it be WC vs consumer, or the Masters review roundups. The bottom line up front for this post has to do with some final...

    HEAD iTitan vs Atomic Vantage X CTI 83

    Hi guys, I am wondering how would you compare these 2 skis. I am an aspiring intermediate (~15 days/yr) looking for a frontside ski that I can work with to refine my techniques. I am 6'2 160lb and live in Seattle/PNW. I have been on HEAD rev75 (a beginner ski?) for 3 years. In general I like...

    Atomic Redster S9 impressions and thoughts about carving

    Hi. Some time ago I started a thread about looking for "beginner carving skis with a catch." Here's the link: https://forum.pugski.com/threads/beginner-carving-skis-with-a-catch.6434/ Basically the community suggested that I was not really looking for beginner carving skis, but intermediate...

    Ski Brand Speed....

    Granted my modern World Cup ski experience is filtered through the overlords of the Olympic Channel but on more than one occasion I've heard the expert, i.e. Bode Miller refer to a skier's equipment issues in such a way you can tell it's more than just the tuning or boot fit... I get the...

    Sold 2016 Atomic Redster XTI 164cm--SOLD

    $400 plus shipping. These skis are nothing short of outstanding on hard pack and ice. They ski short turns and long turns. They do as you ask, you're wish is their command. They are 72 underfoot, have a short turning radius and are just so easy to ski. I have 3 pairs of skis under 78...

    What to expect from my Atomic Vantage 90 CTI

    Went for a one ski quiver this year, and had my eyes set on the Blizzard Brahma, but got a good deal on the Vantage 90 CTI, and since the reviews have been really good on this ski, and went for it since the dealer believed the ski would be more "fun" than the Brahma. Ended up getting the 184cm...

    $399, Are You Out of Your Mind?

    @Dave Petersen Artwork Another season, and another chance to get the best ski deals out there. We contemplated what to do this year: should we continue our tried-and-true Steals & Deals, or mix it up? Well, we decided to do both. In fact, the industry kinda forced our hand with a whole new...

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTi vs 2017 Salomon QST 99

    Yes, Salomon and Atomic are both under the Amer Group umbrella, which means there are a lot of people who don’t care which of these skis you buy as long as you buy one of them. Since I am moonlighting at a shop, I get to go to manufacturer clinics, and we just had our Atomic and Salomon...
