Reviewer Ell

"The ultimate giant slalom ski has a very high stability, is heavy and stiff enough to cut through snow bumps at the and of the day. You always know where this ski goes: straight down until you give it a new direction!"

In between Slalom and Giant Slalom

The Atomic Redster Doubledeck 3.0 XT is not a specific slalom ski and not a specific giant slalom ski. What shall I do with this ski? Easy answer: with the D2 3.0 XT you can do everything on groomers as long as it is related to racing. Atomic has put the best of two worlds together! to simplify it, Atomic took the real race ski (3.0 GS/SL) and changed the radius to 15.5 by adjusting dimensions and this way made a perfect ski for me. This ski is a good worker, it will cost you a lot of power and energy, but then this ski can do anything on piste. High speed, short and long carve turns, carving, sliding and almost jumping around. Quickly changing from edge to edge, the D2 3.0 XT stays extremely stable and has awesome edge grip. How good can it be, I can do everything with the same ski and have fun all day long. This ski won't punish you too badly, but you will need skills because of the heaviness. You can cruise (high speed) the D2 3.0 XT ski all day long. Start the day on freshly groomed slopes and stay in control till the last run to the resort on snow bumps.

Best of two worlds

This is by far my number one ski. In the test center they said I should try these Atomic XT race skis. I didn't expect a lot of this one simply as I didn't know them, but I was really surprised. Overall I don't like skis with a small radius, they are often too restless and nervous to me and I don't trust them on high speed. The D2 3.0 XT made me clear that I have to start with an open mind at all times as this ski is in for everything and I had a lot of fun on the slopes. So it isn't a surprise I rate this ski with five stars. The only thing I didn't like was carrying it, I needed both hands to put it in the gondola!

Atomic about the Redster D2 3.0 XT

"The Atomic Redster Doubledeck 3.0 XT is the top ski in our new XT range of performance piste skis. It’s perfect for skiers looking for Redster performance, but who don’t necessarily want to rock the racing look all day long. XT stands for ‘Cross Turn’ meaning its multi-radius sidecut offers the perfect blend of GS and SL performance. It’s powered by Redster race technology like Doubledeck 3.0 and RAMP Tech. And it has a Tapered Sidewall and Power Woodcore that adds a ton of stability and dampens vibrations at speed. But it also comes with a more all-mountain feel for playful smooth rides.", says Atomic. Gratulations Atomic, you did it. How can you put this all in one ski.
