Atomic Descender

The Atomic Descender scored Montagnes Magazines “best price/quality score” for 2010. Not too shaped it grips well on steep, hard snows and its lightweight makes it easy to handle. Not fat enough to be a deep powder tool it is a good allround touring ski with a high shovel to clear obstacles such as buried trees and rocks.

What Atomic Says

The Descender is the latest addition to the arsenal of US Alpinist Mike Marolt who used this model on his expeditions and first descents in the mountains of Asia, North and South America. Thanks to a timber lite core, this touring ski weighs just 1260 grammes in 163cm bu tit really comes into its own, as the name suggests, on the descent. A step down sidewall offers protection from damage on rough terrain.

Expert Opinon

  • On the ground we could find no fault and the Atomic Descender showed itself both reactive in short radius turns and at easy carving large curves. - Montagnes Magazine
