Atomic Drifter Skis 2014

Part of Atomic's Tracker line for backcountry touring enthusiasts, the Atomic Drifter Skis are an lightweight ski designed for skiers just as serious about going up as they are about skiing down. The Drifter's lightweight, torsionally stiff construction, combined with Powder Rocker and Step Down Sidewall construction, allows you to hit the summit, let 'er rip on the way down and go back for seconds, if your legs can keep up. Say "yes" to the tour.
Rocker Type
15% Tip Rocker / 85% Camber
All Mountain Rocker - The perfect blend of performance in both hard and soft snow conditions
 
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: Alpine Touring
    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.
