The new All-Mountain Vantage series features Atomic's new Backbone Technology with its vertebrae-inspired strip of titanium integrated into the wood core for the efficient energy transfer that metal provides—but with a softer flex. Along with Atomic's Step Down Sidewall construction, the backbone helps to absorb and dampen vibrations while increasing edge grip. Fans of Atomic's race-inspired skis may not be looking for what Crawford called "a surfy and easy feeling" in the Ritual. Testers agree—the Ritual's strong suit is soft snow, thanks to a 103 mm waist, soft tip and a generous amount of tip and tail rocker. "It's best performance is in powder and chop," said Ertl.
