Atomic Affinity Air Skis + XTL 9 Lady Bindings - Women's 2012

Atomic Affinity Air Skis + XTL 9 Lady Bindings - Women's 2012: The Atomic Affinity Air Skis are a true confidence builder for weekend mountain goers or those transitioning to adult equipment. Designed to be forgiving with a go anywhere mentality, the Affinity Air starts with a 74mm waist for easy edge-to-edge but is wide enough for the more adventurous with off-piste skiing. A basic Cap Fiber construction and lightweight composite core allow the Affinity Air to be smooth with edge hold. Adaptive Rocker helps keep the tips of the Affinity Air from hanging up in choppy snow and makes turn initiation effortless and almost instant.

Bindings
The XTL 9 Lady Bindings allow the Affinity Air’s to flex naturally for excellent edge contact and bump absorption. This full-flex, twin pivot binding creates consistent power application using a rail plate: the toe and heel adjust on the rail and the center of the binding is fixed to the ski. Long, automatically adjusting toe wings increase contact zone with boot for precise boot hold and enhanced energy transmission to edges. Automatic toe height adjustment ensures a proper fit without using tools. Din range: 2.5-9
Other Features
Shape-Adaptive Rocker shape
When skis are unweighted, there is slight rise in the tips that make it easy to initiate turns
When skis are put on edge after start a turn, the camber flattens out to deliver full-length contract with snow and excellent edge hold.
Core and Flex Pattern
A composite core is lighter and more lively than wood, reducing swing weight for effortless handling. Women specific flex zones in tip and tails make it easy to start turns and offer a smooth power transfer out of turns.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: 12m @ 140cm
  • Core/Laminates: Composite
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Warranty: 1 Year
  • Tip Width (mm): 117
  • Waist Width (mm): 74
  • Tail Width (mm): 96
