Atomic's newest freeski Powder board has a 117 mm waist and Powder Rocker profile with 55 percent camber underfoot combined with tip and tail rocker. Testers thought the Automatic hit the mark for the Powder category. "Excellent float and maneuverability," said Mahon. "It can and will carve but prefers to skid or float." The construction includes Atomic's step down sidewalls designed to absorb vibration under the binding. The wood core is reinforced with titanium sprockets, placed to transfer energy from the binding to the edges. Smaller or less aggressive skiers may find the Automatic heavy, but Ertl said it rewards strong skiers and called it "confidence inspiring."
