Directional shape offers increased power Carbon backbone enhances agility and edge hold without adding weight Beech and poplar wood core offers running stability Winter 2021/22 item Equipped With Directional Shape Directional Shape is a ski profile that features all-mountain capability, a subtle yet effective rocker contour, and a flatter tail for increased power on firm snow, resulting in easy turn initiation, strong edge grip, and a smooth exit from the turn. HRZN Tech Tip HRZN Tech blends an ABS sidewall construction with revolutionary across-the-ski (horizontal) rocker to add 10% more surface area. This delivers super enhanced floatation, less tip deflection, and more efficient tracking through slop and crud, without adding any swing weight. Powder Rocker The Powder Rocker profile combines Atomic’s most pronounced rocker in the tip and tail, with traditional camber underfoot. This ensures incredible floatation and maneuverability in deep powder, crud, and anything in between. Carbon Backbone Carbon Backbone is an ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold with no extra weight. Ultra Power Woodcore Ultra Power Woodcore utilizes a combination of strong beech and lightweight poplar woods – for great running stability and agility. Dura Cap Sidewall Dura Cap Sidewall runs from base to top sheet, for controlled power transmission and great edge grip. The rounded shape of the Dura Cap Sidewall picks up fewer dents and dings, making the ski more durable.”””
