With its 85mm waist the Atomic Vantage 85 CTI grips like a high-performance piste ski, but is still super floaty in the pow. It’s a top ski in Vantage series – progressive all-mountain skis built to be great on hard pack and equally good in soft snow. To strike this blend one of the big steps forward has been Carbon Tank Mesh, a layer of rigid woven mesh that adds strength across the ski while actually reducing weight. That’s on top of a Titanium Backbone that runs the length of the ski already minimizing weight and adding strength and stability. It also features the iconic Vantage Firewall, an extra full sidewall for awesome power transmission and edge grip on hard pack. Plus a Power Woodcore and All Mountain Rocker in tip and tail for killer performance across the mountain.
