Reviewer Alex

"I like rocker for easy turning and float off-piste. Tip vibration doesn't bother me at all. Of course versatility is a condition for a quality all-mountain ski. It depends on snow conditions whether I prefer frontside skis."

Smooth and challenging all-mountain ski


The Atomic Blackeye Ti ARC is hard work on an icy piste for me. Although it is an all-mountain ski, it is not as forgiving as you might expect. It is fast, it is stiff, it is challenging. On the edge it just goes and goes. Sliding is not what it is made for and short turns are pretty hard, but the ARC makes your turns smooth. Top end ski without a doubt and for me nicer than the same model without the ARC binding.

Effort and ARC bending

When the snow gets softer the ski gets more comfortable. Don't be afraid to take them off-piste every now and then, but not too much. With a bit of effort you have a lot of fun. I give the Blackeye Ti ARC 4 stars in the all-mountain category. Not the maximum of 5 because it is just too much for me on the icy piste and packed chopped up terrain. I rather have something with a bit more comfort in my all-mountain ski. That can be different in the other categories. The new ARC technology makes that the ski bends the whole length and gives a smooth ride. For more information about ARC have a look at Heyman's review of the Blackeye Ti ARC.

Atomic about the Nomad Blackeye Ti ARC

"The Atomic Nomad Blackeye TI is an all-mountain performance ski that excels both on piste and off the side. It now features Carbon Tank Mesh, a new layer of super rigid, woven mesh that adds strength across the ski while actually reducing weight. It also comes with our unique ARC Technology, which channels all your power through one single mounting point in the center of the ski, giving your skiing a really smooth, natural feel. The Step Down Sidewall 2.0 also improves grip on compact snow, while a Power Woodcore and titanium layers keep the ride super stable. Side-piste, the All Mountain Rocker in the tip and 81mm waist maximize versatility and maneuverability.", according to Atomic. To me the ski is very stiff for an all-mountain ski and has amazing edge grip. Blackeye Ti ARC feels as a top-end ski and is sometimes too challenging for me, mainly at the end of the day.
