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."

To all my reviews

 

A wider version of a recreational race ski


Atomic Vantage X 83 CTI is called the successor of the Atomic Nomad Crimson Ti, but in waist width closer to the Blackeye Ti ARC. Pretty tough ski for an all-mountain range ski I have to say. The Vantage X 83 CTI is sportive and feels stable and firm. That pays off with good edge grip and a steady full on carve turn. Very nice. The 83 mm waist width might suggest more off-piste quality than the Vantage X 83 CTI offers. To me this all-mountain ski is too stiff for that with only 10% rocker in the tip. To compare, race skis from Rossignol have that too. I have tested the 168 cm length and although that it made it easy maneuverable, I would take the 175 cm next time. Vantage X 83 CTI is best skied with energy, aggressively and in return speed and stability with a nice edge grip. A 4 star ski to me for on piste/groomers.

Sliding and forgiving

The advantage of the Atomic Vantage X 83 CTI compared to stiffer race skis is in the forgiving factor. Still you need skills to tame it, and therefore in my opinion the X 83 CTI will suit advanced skiers for whom race skis are too much or too serious. This all-mountain ski is still able to change from carving to sliding and back when you want to. Put effort in your skiing and you'll get a nice performance in return as you can push the ski quite far in carving turns. The Vantage X 83 CTI feels light when switching sides and that gives it that bit of comfort especially when the slopes aren't groomed perfectly anymore.

Atomic about the Vantage X 83 CTI

"The Atomic Vantage X 83 CTI is a great system ski for all-mountain skiers who like to spend most of the time on piste and a bit off the side. To create that versatility we’ve taken our lighter, stronger Vantage construction, including Carbon Tank Mesh, and given it a sportier shape and thinner waist ideal for carving sharp turns on harder snow. It comes with our extra-full Firewall, Power Woodcore and Titanium Backbone 2.0 for solid edge grip. We’ve also added a ton of tech like the Exo Profile – a radical 3D profile that cuts swing weight and adds rigidity. This top model comes with Warden 13 MNC DT system bindings.", according to Atomic.
