They say

The Redster X series now includes a widebody option-with a slightly wider waist ideal for handling variable piste conditions

We say

Within the new wave of more widebodied piste skis, the Atomic was actually one of the narrower with just 75mm underfoot. It has a beautifully smooth, measured flex which gives the skier a great feeling of sensitivity underfoot as you move through the turn, this is matched up to a forgiving character which leads into high levels of edge grip. Its still a bit slower from edge to edge than a more traditional piste ski, and feels most at home when making high speed long or medium turns on the groomed runs

Tester Comments

Dougie Mill
Awesome trust on the edge, light and nimble but it just wanted to keep carving
Pete Davison
A little slow from edge to edge at slower speeds, but once up to a faster pace they wer every stable with heaps of grip
