The 2018 Atomic Vantage X 75 CTI skis with bindings are a fantastic option for intermediate and advanced skiers who are looking for a responsive yet light ski that can carve some sweet turns on the groomers. Built with front-side skiing in mind, the Vantage X 75 CTI is a perfect blend of light weight and stability. Atomic is able to do this by adding a titanal backbone that runs the length of the ski and makes for a strong and stable ski. It’s not too heavy like a dual-metal laminate ski, so skiers who aren’t used to a stiff and burly ski will not be overpowered by the Vantage X 75 CTI. Rather, they’ll love the wood core, carbon tank mesh, and narrower waist when it comes to laying down some sweet trenches on the hardpack.
At 75 mm underfoot, the skis are very quick from edge to edge and will give you amazing edge grip thanks to the increased torsional stiffness. The sidewall underfoot also helps keep the edges firmly planted to the snow, while the more capped tips and tails are able to make a bunch of shorter and quicker turns. For skiers who are looking for a versatile carver, this one can certainly make a wide variety of turn shapes and sizes without being too demanding. By only utilizing tip rocker, the skis want to stay in the carve for longer than if the ski had tail rocker. As a result, be prepared to get a ton of rebound out of the turn.
ROCKER TYPE: All Mountain Rocker 10 / 90 / 0 – A tip rocker designed to give you great performance in varying conditions and over any snow.
SHAPE: Exo Profile – A radical 3D profile with slanted and reinforced sides. Cuts swing weight, adds rigidity and reduces scratches for a longer life.
CORE: Power Woodcore – A sporty, dynamic ash and poplar woodcore that adds a ton of stability and dampens vibrations at speed.
INCLUDED BINDINGS: Atomic XT 12 Bindings
