Atomic Automatic Skis 2013

Atomic Automatic Skis 2013: The Bent Chetler has become the staple ski for not only Chris Benchetler but also Tim Durtschi, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Dana Flahr. But Sage and Dana’s skiing styles are a bit more directional than that of Chris and Tim so the need for another ski was in order. Introducing the Atomic Automatic Skis, wider in the tip and waist for charging deep snow but narrower in the tail for quickness. This is a stiffer ski to provide stability for skiing bigger lines at higher speeds.
Shape
Powder Rocker: for freeskiers who want perfect lift in powder while still desiring stability on hard snow
Flotation with 30% tip rocker / 55% camber / 15% tail rocker
Construction
Wood core
The Titanium SPB (Sprocket Power Booster) allows the skier’s energy to be directly transferred from the binding to the edges.
The combination of wood core and SPB stabilizes the Rocker area and ensures extremely smooth skiing.
Dimensions
18m @ 179cm 128/117/117, 19m @ 186cm 130/117/119, 20m @ 193cm 132/117/121
Additional Features
Step Down Sidewall: the extremely durable sidewall construction below the binding improves damping, shock absorption, and therefore edge grip. Half-cap construction at the tip and tail protects the ski from mechanical damage.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: Big Mountain, Powder
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Turning Radius: 19m @ 186cm, Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
