Atomic Vantage 97C
Atomic Vantage 97C
This season, Atomic approached ski design from an entirely new perspective. Rather than stripping away material from a pre-built chassis, they started with the lightest possible baseline, building up the skis in key areas until just the right balance of performance and lightweight durability was achieved.
Case in point, the Atomic Vantage 97 C W Skis. An extremely versatile all-mountain setup with a balanced rocker profile and snappy combination of poplar and carbon, the Vantage 97 C features everything accomplished skiers need to to rip day in, day out, and nothing you don't!
Yea! The Atomic gets a podium for Editor’s Choice for Freeskier Magazine - comments are as follows:
The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up these redesigned skis from Atomic is the Vantage series’ construction, called Prolite. Atomic begins with the slimmest possible chassis, leaving the area in front of and behind the bindings with only a titanium mesh for coverage, which provides weight savings without any stability loss. Jenny Harris said, in response to this design, “I was skeptical with the holes in the middle, but they were solid at Mach speed and in moguls. A great choice for many ski gals!” Maddie Jimerson added, “Fast and charges! Has lots of power and can lay down serious edge.” Click into these carbon-reinforced offerings and conquer the entire mountain.
All Mountain Rocker – 15% Tip Rocker / 75% Camber / 10% Tail Rocker
Lengths: 156, 164 and 172
A second ski choice for an intermediate and higher on a traditional all mountain ski that’s 80mm underfoot or narrower or a only-ski choice for the same skier that wants to move up to a wider profile and doesn’t want to split time between 2 pairs of skis.
Sizing...if this is your 2nd ski go longer compared to existing all mountain...if replacing your old ski, try to stick to length close to what their all mountain ski is.
Prolite Construction – Instead of starting with a standard construction and cutting material away to save weight, Prolite does the opposite. It starts with the slimmest possible profile and then builds up reinforcements in key areas where strength is needed - like the Energy Backbone down each ski edge.
Light Woodcore – Made from poplar wood, this core optimizes the ski's weight without sacrificing any shock absorption or stability.
Energy Backbone – Reinforcement in key zones giving extra strength and edge grip for powerful skiing.
Carbon Tank Mesh – A layer of rigid woven mesh inserted to add strength from tip to tail while also reducing weight.
Atomic Topsheets – Atomic top sheets are lightweight and highly resistant – with different structures and finishes to suit different terrains.
Full Sidewall – Runs across the full length of the ski for precise steering.
Atomic Base – Atomic uses high-density sintered bases that are fast on any snow, can stand up to anything, and are easy to maintain.
Atomic Edges – Atomic edges are made from steel five times more wear resistant than standard steel, for strength and perfect grip.
Binding Compatibility - We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
