Great to ride on the best
Awesome skis all around
Bought too late…
Got my Atlas 80’s at the end of the season. Didn’t have time to mount bindings. So my rating is 5 stars on the transaction, delivery, and most importantly the anticipation of skiing them next season. To be continued…
Feeling the g’s
What a thrilling ski. I had high hopes as these were at the other end of the carving spectrum from my Citadels, which were already plenty strong in the turn. But the Atlases were gorgeously grippy without any of the twitchiness that short radius skis can have. They were nimble as I played around with short quick turns. They were bold when I lengthened the turns and leaned in for the big carve. The main feeling was flying a high bank turn in a high performance jet and being in a thrilling high g regime throughout. Gobs of performance while being in total control.
Old guy skiing new skis
I got to ski these skis for one day before my season ended. I found that they turned easily and at higher speeds carved very well. Looking forward to next season already.
Atlas 80 is a quick - edge-to-edge with solid holding capabilities which is desirable, especially for the east coast. They are not demanding like some carving skis if you want to relax however; appear to stand up to however aggressive you want to be. Great ski . . . .
