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?"

Awesome freeride touring skis


The Atomic Automatic 102 is a lightweight ski weighing only 1,85kg per ski. Perfect for touring or hiking to reach those unspoiled stretches of deep powder snow. The tip rocker produces enough floatation to enjoy the descent tremendously as well. You would think that such a light ski might not be stiff enough to remain stable at high speed. But even at mach 2 on a hard piste the Automatic 102 carves beautiful sharp turns without any annoying tip vibration. The camber underfoot gives so much edge grip that on hard snow the Automatic 102 is as good as any top all-mountain ski.

Freeride, all-mountain, piste? Everything!

It doesn't matter where you take the Atomic Automatic 102. To a hard piste, chopped up snow, backcountry, this ski will always display a phenomenal performance. Stability at mindboggling speed. Lightweighted and no tip vibration whatsoever. Always in control and easy to turn whether in high speed long turns or in low speed short turns. Therefore the Automatic 102 is a true one-ski-quiver and worth a 5 star rating. Any advanced to expert skier that longs for a ski to cover the whole ski-area will enjoy the Automatic 102. This ski is even a wise choice for ambitious intermediate freeriders.

Atomic about the Automatic 102

"If you’re looking to explore the entire mountain in search of deeper snow, the Atomic Automatic 102 ski is your ideal companion. Thanks to a 102mm waist, coupled with Powder Rocker – big in the tip, smaller in the tail – it delivers awesome flotation and easy handling in soft snow. The Step Down Sidewall 2.0 construction and Light Woodcore guarantee a smooth ride, great durability and provide stability. At the same time the pronounced camber underfoot ensures optimum edge grip and makes the ski super versatile on hard and mixed snow, too. Add some Tracker bindings and MultiFit Powder Rocker Skins on this low-weight model and you’ve got a superb Freeride Touring ski for your powder missions.", says Atomic.

I tried these with Marker Kingpin and Dynafit Khion boots in heavy spring snow. Pistes were very icy and quite narrow, here I struggled with this setup. The low weight was amazing but did not inspire confidence on hard bumpy ice. I think more due to the touring boots that are a lot softer than my usual plug boots. In soft snow it was a different story, no problems with the boot flex at all. On steep sections the light weight was a pleasure in jump turns. The ski was perfectly balanced and floaty both in long and short turns in quite heavy snow. The light weight and easy turn initiation together with great stability at all speeds made for a very relaxing ride. On another piste section with softer snow the skis proved nimble, quick and playful and great fun, despite the big width. I will be keep ing these as my touring set. It would be interesting compare with even lighter stuff such as Volkl BMT and Blizzard Zero G.
