Ski review Atomic Nomad Blackeye
Atomic's first top all-mountain ski
For the third consecutive season the Atomic Blackeye has been unchanged. Now you may think this ski has become oldfashioned, but believe me, it is still one of the best all mountain skis Atomic has ever made, even by todays standards.

According to Atomic the Blackeye really comes into its own on prepaired terrain. And they are right. On the piste you can race down as hard as you want without ever loosing control. The Blackeye carves really good turns and has tremendous stability on high speed. The only thing lacking is that last acceleration out of the turn, but what can you expect from a ski with a little rocker at its tail.
80% piste - 20% off-piste
Smooth and stable
Versatile and playful
A ski for all seasons
Fast and versatile
That backend rocker gives a nice playfulness in open terrain, which is surprising for a ski that is so good on the piste. That very steep terrain you must so often come down from before you hit the powder zone, the Blackeye really handles without a problem. It almost floats over chopped-up snow, but in deep powder you'll have to maintain a lot of speed not sink down.
This ski is made for...
Intermediate skiers that want a pair of skis that will allow them to cover every kind of terrain in any condition. But if you're a more advanced skier, you may prefer the Blackeye Ti, which is more rigid.

The Atomic Nomad Blackeye Ti is more rigid than the Blackeye due to titanium inserts. The newer version is the Atomic Nomad Blackeye Ti ARC featuring "natural flex" technology. The Nordica Fuel is a versatile all-mountain cruiser as well.
