Atomic Vantage 90 CTi W ski review, 2017/2018 women's All-Mountain Front Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

Women who are accustomed to skiing men’s skis should know Atomic's Vantage 90 CTi W is identical to its unisex counterpart save for an all-poplar core. The Atomic features most responsible for Vantage 90 CTi W's sublime performance in off-trail chunder, Titanium Backbone 2.0, Carbon Tank Mesh and Firewall, are all present and accounted for in the women’s lengths. Each of these features delivers what amounts to a smaller portion of its key ingredient: the metal laminate is cut down to a spine shape, carbon is in a grid rather than a solid sheet and the Firewall sidewall is at its fullest only underfoot. In other words, the Vantage 90 CTi W ski is perfectly adapted for women without having to be modified much at all. For the lighter skier, Vantage 90 CTi W skis with a lot of pep in its step. One of the Willi's Ski and Snowboard Shop Winter Divas described it as “Springy, fun, joyous, smile-inducing.” Another Diva concurs, calling the Vantage 90 CTi W “Very quick to rebound, very stable at speed, easy to turn, very playful but so controlled. I love the engineering of the ski.”
