It’s virtually impossible to make a better Technical ski than Atomic’s Redster X9. It has the stability of a Super G and the reflexes of a Slalom. If there’s a speed at which the edge breaks loose, chances are you’ll never touch it.

Redster X9's imperturbable hold is amplified by a feature called Servotec, a long, thin rod embedded in an elastomer. The interaction between rod and elastomer during flexion both absorbs shock and actively restores ski/snow contact, noticeable both in straight running and especially in energized turns where the Atomic Redster X9’s rebound qualities are off the charts.
