Reviewer Heyman

"A solid backside all-mountain ski is as strong on-piste as it is off-piste. It is made to perform well everywhere within the resort bounderies. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort and floatation in powder snow."

To all my reviews


Sportive and comfortable

The Atomic Vantage 85 CTI is only 5mm less wide than its brother the Vantage 90 CTI. Apart from a tiny bit less float, these skis are exactly the same. So read my review of the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI here. Why then do I give the Vantage 85 CTI not a 5 star (like the 90 CTI) but a 4,5 star rating? Because of those 5mm. Always go for the wider ski.

Atomic about the Vantage 85 CTI

"With its 85mm waist the Atomic Vantage 85 CTI grips like a high-performance piste ski, but is still super floaty in the pow. It’s a top ski in Vantage series – progressive all-mountain skis built to be great on hard pack and equally good in soft snow. To strike this blend one of the big steps forward has been Carbon Tank Mesh, a layer of rigid woven mesh that adds strength across the ski while actually reducing weight. That’s on top of a Titanium Backbone that runs the length of the ski already minimizing weight and adding strength and stability. It also features the iconic Vantage Firewall, an extra full sidewall for awesome power transmission and edge grip on hard pack. Plus a Power Woodcore and All Mountain Rocker in tip and tail for killer performance across the mountain.", says Atomic.
