Reviewer Heyman

"One-Ski Quiver: the ultimate ski that carves like a slalom ski, accellerates like a GS ski, is as comfortable as an all-mountain ski, cuts through chop like a freeride ski and surfs in bottomless powder like a fat powder ski. Impossible. But which ski comes closest?"

Superb all-mountain ski


The Atomic Ritual is a magnificent ski. The rocker at tip and tail provide easy turning in every kind of snow. This ski is amazing off-piste. You can plunge into the powder snow and ski down any mountain. It handles chopped-up snow like a dream. It just races through it. And you have no trouble going back to the lift. In fact it even carves pretty well.

All-mountain or freeride ski

Atomic defines the whole Vantage series as "all-mountain twins". That is an accurate name for the rest of the Vantage series like the Atomic Vantage Theory. But I think the Ritual is more of a freeride ski. Although it's capabilities as an all-mountain ski are sufficient, the Atomic Ritual really comes into its own off-piste. On hard and icy slopes though the Ritual just has too much rocker at the front and the back for a good and well controlled descent. But as a rule we follow the manufacturers choice of category, so the ritual is in our all-mountain category.

Atomic about the Vantage Ritual

"The Vantage Ritual can be controlled effortlessly and is exceptionally smooth even at high speeds. The two All Mountain Rockers in the tip and tail increase agility and make it easier to initiate turns. The ski floats on powder thanks to a handsome waist width of 103 mm", says Atomic. I can't agree more. This ski is made for the advanced and expert skier that desires a ski that is excellent off-piste and good enough on-piste to have a really good time skiing back to the lift. That lift that will bring you to yet another freeride adventure.
