"This is a true comfort ski for women of different ski abilities," Minneci said of the Affinity Pure. "It's light, playful and easy to turn." Muecke, an instructor at Snowbird, recommended the Atomic women's ski for her students. "I'd put an intermediate through advanced woman who is looking for a forgiving ski to grow with from skidding turns to learning how to carve." The Affinity Pure has a 79-millimeter waist and slight rocker in the tip for easy turn initiation. Half-cap construction at the tip and tail reduces weight and Atomic’s Step Down sidewalls in the binding area increase edge grip and dampen vibration.
