They say

This is the flagship all mountain ripper. If you like a ski that is loaded with power, yet very playful at the same time, this is the ski for you.

We say

No question this is a ski that loves speed! It feels super stable and it has a wide enough platform to blast through any conditions with ease. Like all the Black Crows we tested it feels a real quality item, with a construction that feels like it will last a long time. One of the outstanding qualities is that the Atris consistently delivers a well balanced flex and a smooth ride, this makes it strong in unpredictable conditions and easy to read through the turn. Because of the width they feel slow from edge to edge and will be more of a challenge at slower speeds, but if you like higher speeds and bigger turns this is a great choice.

Tester Comments

Sam Parkes
Off piste is great, lots of float, great for big, fast turns
Al Morgan
Stable, but definitely more of a big mountain ski
