Atomic Charter Skis 2013

Atomic Charter Skis 2013: Bringing your backcountry game to new heights, the Atomic Charter is there day and day out for as long as your legs can last. The Charter has a light Powder Rocker for float yet versatility, proven Step Down Sidewall for lifelong durability, Ti Mega Grip for rigidity, and a Lite wood core for ultimate hikeability. Let’s face it, the Charter has unlimited abilities.
Shape
Powder Rocker: for freeskiers who want perfect lift in powder while still desiring stability on hard snow
Flotation with 20% tip rocker / 80% camber
Construction
Lite Wood Core: an ultra-lightweight wood core reduces overall weight.
The sidewall construction provides optimum cushioning and edge grip
Titanium Mega Grip delivers maximum edge grip thanks to high torsional rigidity below the binding and scores top marks in pullout tests.
Dimensions
17m @ 166cm 128.5/100/118.5, 18m @ 176cm 129.5/100/119.5, 19m @ 186cm 130.5/100/120.5
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: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    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.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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: 18m @ 176cm, Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
  • Warranty: 1 Year (2 Years with Atomic Bindings)
  • Tip Width (mm): 129.5
  • Waist Width (mm): 100
  • Tail Width (mm): 119.5
