2015/2016 Atomic Cloud 11 XT ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Frontside Category.

A new chassis for the Cloud 11 means a narrow 71-mm waist and a tight 13-meter turning radius, resulting in high tester scores for carving, lowest for versatility. “Beginners beware—this is a serious player that needs power to get on edge,” states Rodman. Atomic’s ARC Technology uses a single anchoring mounting point in the center of the ski designed to create a smooth, natural flex. Construction includes a light wood core, a titanium stabilizer, full sidewalls and a small amount of tip rocker. “Enjoy the robust edge hold underfoot and know you can totally trust this ski at speed in variable conditions,” says Johnson.
