Product Info

Our theory about the Atomic Theory Skis is that they fricken' rock. Built to preform all over the mountain, the Theory's crush on hard snow but aren't afraid of the fluff either. A carbon backbone running the entire length of the ski adds stabilization and durability throughout while reducing overall weight. Your ski shouldn't confine you to one part of the mountain, check out the Theory Skis from Atomic and get the freedom you've always wanted.

    Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

    I ski anywhere from 20-30 times a season. These skis are amazing. I primarily ski the east coast, so icey, crud conditions and these skis hold firm the entire way down blacks and double blacks.

    Hands down a must have

      Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

      Just tried these skis out for the first time and found they go into a carve pretty easily and the wider base let me get through some crud and mashed potatoes without getting bogged down. These are relatively light-weight and should work well for groomed runs as well as moguls.

      Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

      These are fun skis, but not the best at everything. I don't enjoy skiing these on groomers, but everywhere else on the mountain, I'm happy to have them under my feet. I slide much more than carve with these, and I have to put more effort into turns than I like to. Putting them on edge definitely isn't as easy as my older skis (these are my first twin tips). My biggest complaint is not popping out of my turns. These just take a little more effort to get those great turns on groomers. Thankfully, these skis are great off the trail which is what I like the most and what I primarily ski. They are maneuverable between trees and handle choppy snow remarkably well.

      I love taking these on technical, natural snow trails with ledges, rocks, waterfalls, dips, etc. It's like the difference of having a four wheel drive car during a snowstorm. Pretty good in powder.

      If perfect groomer runs aren't high on your list, these skis are great.

        Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

        I picked up some Atomic Snoop demo's a few years ago and loved the skis (my first twin tip), the Snoop morphed into the Atomic Theory's that I bought new two season ago and for Big Mountain Western Skiing they are the most versatile ski in my 8 pair quiver...all you really need. They do great low to high speed arcs on anything with the exception of Sun Valley bullet proof manmade ...when only a racing ski will do... great and versatile e off-piste as well especially in broken snow or in tight chutes and trees. The ski does especially well in tight spaces and in moguls due to the ski's short turn radius and soft tips. I use them to ski the moguls at Mary Jane.. they are my go to ski very quick and forgiving. I ski on the 186cm and weigh 200lbs and have a racing background. Usually put these in the bag if I am skiing the Powder Highway in Canada as my everyday resort ski along with bringing along my wide ride's (K2 Obsessed - Seth Morison Model) for the occasional deep powder day! You will love these.

          Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

          I ski park on this ski just because it is so stable and fast. I have put 2 seasons of hard use into these skis and they just won't give in. I am a guy that likes to get new skis every year but I never needed to with theses ski I have used them at least 200 times and I could easily use them for another 200. The only thing that has happened is a couple of scratches on the bases, top sheet chipping, and a few edge cracks. I have used these skis in mid thigh deep pow and they floated even with center mounts. For an all mountain ski this could easily be an all mountain park ski. For anyone who likes the atomic punk but is looking for a little wider version, it holds up just as well and has the same flex profile just more rocker. I couldn't ask for any more out of this ski

            Comments about Atomic Theory Skis 2015:

            These skis are a pretty solid one-ski quiver. I demo'd quite a few pairs before buying and these really stood out to me both in performance and price.

            I like hitting everything from groomers to chutes and these skis allow me that freedom. They're even fun for a quick dip in the park on the way down the mountain.

            The only mild complaint I have is they don't turn quite as sharp as I like. I enjoy skiing moguls and these skis they require a little more effort than I'd like for the really quick turns. They'll still do it, it'll just require a bit more effort. However, this is likely a product of me setting the bindings at the factory settings however.
