The slightly wider profile of the Atomic Vantage 79 C skis with bindings gives on-trail skiers a bit of versatility to head off trail and have some fun ski adventures. While not a powder ski by any stretch, it still has a bit of width as well as a touch of tip rocker for when the going gets soft. But these were really meant for on-trail carving for intermediate level skiers who are looking to improve and step up their ski game. At 79 mm underfoot, you'll get great torsional stiffness, as well as a wider platform which helps with balance and control. The combination of a light wood core and Densolite composite material make for a great blend and combination of performance and lightness, as you'll get a snappy and quick turn as well as a strong and precise feel in the corners. Adding to the strength, but not the weight, of the ski is the carbon tank mesh and the energy backbone. These technologies beef up the central portion of the ski and ensure that the skis have a sensible fore/aft flex while still remaining light and useful to skiers with a wide range of abilities. With a 16-meter turn radius at the 171 cm length, these skis can make a variety of turn shapes and styles, as these skis are the perfect choice for intermediate to advancing skiers who are looking to own their gear.
