They say

The squadrons’ flagship model: Atris is a success with everyone on all snow types around the world

We say

The Atris feels very comfortable in backcountry terrain, that generous width underfoot makes it effortless in powder and just gives it that ability to surf through off piste conditions with ease. This feels like a ski that is totally focused on being a great ally for serious backcountry use, it’s brilliant for slashing and smearing out the turns. You can really feel this in the trees, where space is tricky and you need that ability to be nimble. The sidecut is really well judged and gives the skier enough reaction to carve out long turns on the hardpack, great ski!

Tester Comments

Dougie Mill
Great for slashing turns, nimble in the trees. Definitely going to catch other skiers attention with these on your feet!
Pete Davison
Nice sidecut which carves well on firm snow. Soft tips and tail make them forgiving in powder but lacks support at high speed
