Atomic Factory SL 2012 Slalom Ski Review

Uploaded by elatemedia on 28.09.2011

Russ from Atomic is very kindly going to let us take out these FIS Slalom skis what can
you tell us about these skis?
Well this is the world cup product. So this is the, the exact same ski that all our top
end athletes will use on the world cup circuit through out the year. The ski at the moment
is doing very very well, we’ve changed the construction from what we had in the past
so it’s a new ski here with a new binding on it as well to get more drive through the
OK and it’s a bit of a secret, secret model I hear?
It is, I’d love to tell you exactly what goes into the product and what it’s made
But you’d have to kill me?
They won’t even tell me.
So, this is only known by the guys in the race department. I think it’s the same with
all the manufacturers, we try and keep things a little bit secret with these skis its your
own recipe…
Just to stay one step ahead of the competition.
Absolutely, yeah
Well I’ll give them a go, I’ll tell you what I think.
Great stuff, go and enjoy them
Thank you
What an amazing ski. A lot of fun to ski on and you can generate a huge amount of power
and energy through the turn. If you get caught slightly in the back seat you’re really
going to know about it. But such grip, such power, and really able to hold the turn and
create some amazing angles. I’m going to see if I can keep them.
