They say

Lighter and softer than its unisex version, the Atris Birdie has the same characteristics: stability, pivot and a medium turning radius.

We say

This is another ski that is totally awesome in the powder, it’s super wide underfoot and just surfs out on any off piste conditions. As well as great floating properties it has a really smooth flex which gives out a gorgeous silky ride. These two properties alone make this a great companion for making big turns in the backcountry. As expected, for a ski of this size it can feel pretty ponderous from edge to edge on hardpack, and it definitely feels like a big ski to handle, but the great quality construction allows it to feel smooth and solid on the edge.

Tester Comments

Natasha Edwards
Such a good looking ski, great colour! Felt really smooth and really bouncy
Rowena Phillips
Lovely floaty ski that’s easy to rotate both on and off piste and it copes with undulating terrain really well
