Ski Information:

  • Sidecut radius is 18 meters (172cm)

The all new Atomic Vantage 97Ti replaces the Vantage 100 CTi for 2019.  And, this new ski is a major step up in technology and engineering.  It features Atomic's totally new, ground breaking ProLite construction.  ProLite is all about making the ski lighter, without compromising performance.  And, Atomic has done exactly that.  The new Vantage 97 Ti has a great feel on the snow, and is amazingly easy to move around.  It is slightly narrower than the ski it replaces, so it is even more nimble, and still  rock solid stable, and very grippy when the snow gets hard.  This is simply a very good ski, that has an amazing technical story surrounding it.

The ProLite concept starts with a brand new, super slim core and then completely removing sections of the core just in front and behind the binding area.  Both of these areas are then strengthened with titanium mesh that covers the ProLite recesses, and wraps up and over the core that surrounds them.  The end result is an entirely new way of building skis, and they feel incredibly light.  It is amazing that a ski with this much width can be so light, and easy to move around on the snow.

The Vantage 97 Ti incorporates all of Atomic's best features, latest technology and top engineering.  Check out this list of features of the new Atomic Vantage 97 Ti:

  • Prolite construction removes material in key areas to lighten the ski with no compromise in performance.  It is an amazing feel on the snow, with the top performance skiers expect from one of the top ski makers in the world

  • Energy Backbone gives the ski incredible torsional stiffness, and outstanding rebound from turn to turn.

  • Titanium Tank Mesh tip tail reinforces the ProLite recesses in the front and back of the ski., and also.  No material is better than titanium to smooth out the ride and maximize edge hold.  Atomic has found a whole new way to use this incredible metal inside this ski

  • Power Woodcore is Atomic's best laminated core.  Wood absorbs vibration better, provides excellent rebound from turn to turn, and makes the most durable skis available.

  • Full Sidewall of ABS acts as a suspension system for the edges, keeping them in contact with the snow even when it is hard, bumpy and uneven.  Better edge contact equals better stability and edge hold

  • Structured Topsheet is super durable, and difficult for snow to stick to.

  • World Cup Base Finish is equivalent to the final tune that Atomic offers on its race skis.  No ski is better out of the wrapper than those with this finish.

  • All Mountain Rocker 15/75/10 makes this ski an all terrain, all condition machine.  Rocker in the tip helps the ski float in deep snow, and also helps absorb bumpy, skied out, afternoon conditions.  Slight rocker at the tail allows for a forgiving feel in deeper snow, and helps this wider ski carve amazingly easily.  Camber in the center makes for a smooth ride, and excellent edge hold on harder snow.
