2015/2016 Atomic Vantage 90 CTi ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s All-Mountain Front Category, awarding it an Editors’ Choice.

“There’s lots of energy in this ski,” says Witman. “It’s fun and quick in any turn shape.” Testers applauded the revamped Vantage 90 CTi, awarding it high scores across the board, with highest for playfulness, lowest for float. Zawacki calls it a “great one-quiver board.” In fact, for 2015/2016, Atomic’s Vantage series gets lighter and stronger thanks to Carbon Tank Mesh, which adds a layer of woven carbon mesh throughout the ski. The ski-length Titanium Backbone-shaped insert still remains but is joined by a newly designed, full sidewall called Firewall. “It’s wide enough underfoot to skid and smear, but narrow enough to carve,” says Stoeger.
