Reviewer DellaSausa

"I like to ski at high speed. Giant slalom skis are made for me. Stability is very important. Slalom is nice for shorter work when necessary. Like at the end of the day on icy bumpy pistes. Allround piste skis should be damp but not too comfortable."

High speed straight downhill


The Atomic Redster Edge GS with Rocker should be a giant slalom ski with Rocker qualities. To me it is great on high speed downhill and a lot less for carving on the edges. Not to speak about off-piste of course, which is no match at all, but that is totally how it should be. It feels like this ski is more for old school ski technique though. This comes especially clear when making short turns. It won't carve but tends to slide or "rutsch". And don't expect to carve at long turns either, if you are a skier like me.

Giant slalom & Rocker

With Giant Slalom and Rocker in the name, my expectations were higher for racecarving on the edges and being able to handle some layer of fresh snow. I didn't feel the Rocker part at all. With being it only 10% as Atomic says, it is just not enough to get the advantages of the Rocker principle. So, skip the off-piste, skip slalom and speed up.

Atomic about the Redster Edge GS

"The Atomic Redster Edge GS is a super smooth, precise and responsive ski for big, fast turns on the piste. It features a race-oriented XT 12 binding for enhanced performance. The Race Rocker makes the ski very easy to control at high speeds while turns can be initiated effortlessly. Two titanium layers provide just the right amount of stiffness so power is transferred directly to the edges during turns for awesome grip. And the full sidewall runs the length of the ski for precise steering. Smooth, quick and effortless – what more do you need?", says Atomic. And Atomic tells more about the qualities in that range of description. I think it doesn't give the right idea about this piste ski. I experienced no sensation, no rocker and no carving. If you like old school skiing at a nice speed, nothing wrong with that by the way, this Redster might be interesting for you. If you count on better Giant Slalom qualities, you might wanna consider the Atomic Redster D2 3.0 GS. And for the Rockers, have a look at the other categories All-mountain and Freeride.
