They say

We say

The premium big-mountain model from Atomic won our test last year and continues with the same construction of a full wood core with a rockered tip and tail and normal camber underfoot. We still love this ski! Initially it feels very hefty, and looks built for high-speed action. It matches these expectations with rock-solid stability and the power to be the ultimate crud smasher. It has no limits on speed. The clever trick is that even at very high speeds it still has a degree of usability which makes it easy to change direction, adjust the curve and dump speed whenever you need to. However, it’s mainly suited to strong riders who are comfortable at speed.

Very strong at speed and brilliant through the crud. Go fast then go home tired!
