Atomic Charter Skis 2014

Part of Atomic's Tracker line, and crafted for backcountry touring enthusiasts, the Atomic Charter Skis are built for skinning and skiing those distant peaks you've always dreamed about. Designed with equal emphasis on the climb and descent, Atomic combines an ultra-lightweight woodcore with Titanium Mega Grip, significantly increasing torsional rigidity and reducing pull-out risk. A flat tail and skin-strap notch make the tails climbing skin-friendly.
Rocker Type
Powder Rocker - For exceptional floatation in powder and reliable grip even on hard snow.
 
20% Tip Rocker / 80% Camber
Core
Lite Woodcore
Ti Mega Grip - Exceptionally lightweight titanium inserts in the binding area maximize torsional rigidity, improve edge drip and hold the binding more securely on the ski.
Sidewalls
Step Down Sidewall - Sidewall construction under the binding optimizes absorption and delivers reliable edge grip. Half-cap construction at the tip and tail protects the ski from edge damage, for the best of both worlds.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

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: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • 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.
