Atomic Redster X9 ski review, 2017/2018 men's Technical Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

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 under the binding at one end and attached on the other end at a point just behind the shovel. The interaction of the rod and the elastomer during flexion both absorbs shock and actively restores ski/snow contact. Its effects are noticeable both in straight running and especially in energized turns where the Atomic Redster X9’s rebound qualities are off the charts. “Really great beer league ski!” raved one tester. “Lots of fun, if a little stout.” To this tester’s point, one has to be able to impart energy in order for Servotec to kick in, but any athletic expert should be up to this challenge. Once you try the Atomic Redster X, you’ll be hooked.
