Ski review Atomic Nomad Savage Ti
More powder than piste ski
The Savage ti is because of its size more suitable for powder or backcountry. Certainly compared to its brother the Atomic Blackeye Ti which to me covers the all-terrain part better.
Cheapest price we found Atomic Nomad Savage Ti ski for sale:
The Savage ti is harder to turn on a groomed slope because of the wideness in the middle. To make it a bit easier for yourself, you should pick up some more speed. Then, this Atomic ski lets you steer a bit easier on the piste. Even then I still feel its intention to go straight though, but it is doable.
Advanced - Expert
30% piste - 70% off-piste
Difficult turning on piste
Big long carving turns
Doable for intermediates
The size makes it look for experts only
These skis, as most powder oriëntated skis, are so big and wide that I think beginners won’t pick them quickly. I am very curious to try everything of course. This way I found out that when it looks impossible to ski on, I get surprised sometimes. And so it is with the Savage ti, I wondered if it is possible to get fun out of it. With my limited skills it is still possible. And it will only get better, I might expect. With a good dump of fresh powder, this is a ski I won't be afraid to pick.
Atomic about the Nomad Savage Ti
"With a 93 mm waist the Savage Ti is good for soft and mixed snow." And that waist is wider than for example the Salomon BBR 9.0. And you do feel that the float off-piste is better. I would say the Savage Ti is 70% off-piste and the BBR 9.0 about 50%. With the Savage ti you want to make longer turns on the piste. Question is what you prefer of course, they are both quality skis to me.
