Testing skis so you don't have to.
Pugski Ski Tester
Philpug: I had a chance to ski the Vantage 107 back in December 2017 when Atomic was teasing the Shift binding. I skied it on firm groomers rather than off piste, so my review is not really complete. But what I can pass along is that the Vantage 107 is a wider “scaled” version of the Vantage 97 Ti, a ski that I really liked. Atomic scaled the ski for off piste with much more taper in the tip and tail, both in shape and profile, than its narrower and stiffer on-piste counterparts in the Vantage collection. The tapered tip and tail allowed me to feather into turns and release the tail at will on firm conditions, and I could tell that in three-dimensional snow, this guy will be a charger's delight.
Insider tip: It skis short, so don’t fear sizing up ... especially if you are skiing big mountains.
Who is it for?
- Chargers who don’t want to work every turn; think power-assisted steering vs full power steering.
Who is it not for?
- Backcountry tourers, no worries: Atomic makes the Backland 107 for you.
