Don't freak out, the Atomic Panic Skis are here to calm all your skiing anxieties. With the Panics, your groomer ski can be your soft snow ski too. Thanks to features like the all mountain rocker and a slightly wider waist, the Panic Skis shred the fresh, while still ripping on hard pack. A carbon backbone adds durability and stabilization while reducing weight to give you a smoother, more responsive ride. Own the whole mountain with the Atomic Panic Skis.
All Mountain Rocker A rocker that's super versatile, providing performance on all snow conditions and any terrain, both on and off piste.
Twin Progressive Sidecut A bigger radius at the tip and a smaller radius at the tail makes for easier turn initiation and optimum grip out of turns
Carbon Backbone An ultra-lightweight Carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone, minimizing weight and adding a ton of strength to the entire construction.
Step Down Sidewall
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Atomic Panic Skis 2015:
Went in on my first new pair of skis in about a decade. I'd heard twin tips were a lot of fun, and I wasn't disappointed when I chose this pair. Effortless turning and great grip are the key takeaways from these -- they really do rock any conditions. That said, at 181, things could get a bit gnarly in moguls and trees (I had to practically relearn skiing glades this season!), but I suppose that's more a reflection the length and not the ski.
Comments about Atomic Panic Skis 2015:
Man, these skis are pretty great. For starters, this is a review of the 2014 model skis, which I think the only thing has changed on the 2015s is they took away the totally awesome graphics.
As a skier, I'm 5 11, about 240 all geared up, and before these skis I was an advanced beginer (coming back into skiing after about 10 years) who would tear up the greens, but be timid on the blues.
These things had me confidently attacking the blues and even attemping a few of the groomed and obsticale free blacks. I have to give some credit to just skiing a shorter ski (157 vs the 170cm I was using), but the rocker on these things combined with the wide SW construction underfoot just instill confidence all day.
These things are no carving skis, but they're perfectly fine on the groomers all the way. Venture off trail and they are great too.
Not a true powder ski for someone like me (as I found out after I sank into a 4 foot powder hole), but the bindings can be set back some which should help. It would have been nice if they had an even 90mm underfoot, which would probably help alittle bit. I do need to lose about 25-30 pounds personally, so hopefully these things will be much more floaty next season.
The one thing I really don't like about these skis is the durability. After only one day, I had a few chips in the topsheet and inside sidewalls neear the tip and tail were getting absolutely chewed up.
Now, I know it isn't the skis fault that I am clumsy and sometimes brush my pole tip across my skis and clatter my tips and tails, but some more durability sould have been nice considering the price of the skis. I would have liked to see some tip and tail protectors too. I worked some majic and now have some tip-tail protection and inside sidewall protection, but I should not have to do that just so my skis last more than a season.
Why is it the cheaper skis are all protected and will last forever, but the more expensive ones are super fragile? (Well, I'll tell you why, so they don't last as long which means you buy more skis)
Overall great skis. Can't wait to get out on them again, be it that may have to wait until next season. I wish the weather here in Southern Utah was not super warm and the peak of the season pretty much over. I'll probably get out some some late season runs if the resort lowers prices since half the runs will be closed.
