Intermediate+ level piste skier
Steef's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"For me skiing on piste is all about testing the limits of speed and grip of the skis, both slalom and giant slalom. Comfort and flex are less important to me than stability. Skiing is supposed to take a lot of energy out of you."
My favourite piste skis:
1. Atomic Redster D2 GS
2. Stöckli Laser SX
3. Fischer RC4 Worldcup RC
To all my reviews
Easy all conditions piste ski
The Atomic Nomad S Radon Ti i(171 cm) is an easy handling and very nice looking piste ski. Nimble, predictable and sharp steering, with good grip for some nice carving without getting nervous. This ski asks you to play around on groomed and chopped up slopes, and gives you a lot of confidence to get the most out of it. I think intermediate skiers up to expert skiers will appreciate this ski. Because of this wide range and versatility a 4 star rating for me.
Universal piste master
The first thing you notice getting on the Radon Ti is how easy these all-mountain skis steer. Without any effort you will make the nicest carving turns, long and short. Changing the radius of turns, no problem. Edging to the max, no problem. Even at speed they stay very stable. Only comment on groomed slopes I think is that they miss the ‘bite’ of a real slalom or giant slalom ski, as expected with the new flex bindings. But when the snow get’s more and more messed up (most of the day), this ski is in it’s natural habitat and the ARC bindings reward you.
Atomic about the Nomad [S] Radon Ti
"Like all our Atomic Nomad [S] series, Radon Ti is all about smashing the piste. Thanks to our unique ARC Technology, Radon Ti also gives your skiing a really smooth, natural feel, even when it’s hard and icy. That’s because ARC Technology channels all your power through one single mounting point in the center of the ski, allowing it to flex naturally for perfect traction and explosive rebound out of turns with less effort. Its sporty 76mm waist and robust Step Down Sidewall 2.0 also offers exceptional edge grip on compact snow, while a Woodcore and two titanium layers make the Nomad [S] Radon Ti strong, torsionally rigid and ideal for very sporty piste skiers.", says Atomic. Eh, yes. And I totally agree with the natural turning thing. It seems the ARC Technology really works! Put together with the stunning looks this ski is the one for skiers who like to stay on-piste and have fun all day!
