Ski it like you stole it.
Speed's the thing. Whether you're railing groomers, mobbing through pow, or popping off bumps, you're always trying to stay just short of reckless, and having a limp noodle of a ski just isn't gonna cut it. Atomic's Vantage 100 CTI Ski throws down a layer of Titanal, a carbon fiber mesh laminate, and burly sidewalls to give you the stiffness you need to charge, but it features a carefully crafted rocker profile that lets you float through pow and get a little loose without feeling like you're gonna buy the farm when you pinch the throttle.
There's no single secret that makes the Vantage rip so hard. Instead, it's a series of innovations and technologies all working together, starting with the All-Mountain Rocker, which features a rockered tip for flotation and easy turning, and raised tail for fun slashing and shimmying, and a generous section of underfoot camber that provides plenty of edge bite and stability at speed. This profile is complemented by the Firewall sidewalls, which employ extra-thick sidewall blocks to direct energy into the edges and reduce chatter, so you can hammer perfect corduroy and choppy chunder with equal aplomb, and taper towards the tips and tails for a smooth, hook-free, and surprisingly playful feel in soft snow.
Make no mistake though, the Vantage likes to charge. Atomic beefed up the lively poplar and ash Power Woodcore with a Titanium Backbone 2.0 laminate, a superlight and highly damp layer that gives the ski a smooth, powerful feel, and added Carbon Tank Mesh in the tips and tails, which gives the Vantage increased torsional stiffness without stacking up unnecessary ounces. The sintered base rips, and Atomic's burly steel edges bite into hardpack like a hungry squirrel into a pile of nuts, so you can tear up your secret (and not-so-secret) stashes all winter long.
