2016/2017 Atomic Vantage X 83 CTI ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category.

“Short turns or super-G arcs, this ski is smooth and responsive in each turn,” says March of the Atomic Vantage X 83 CTI. The new Vantage X system ski series combines woven Carbon Tank Mesh, titanium backbone and vibration-reducing full sidewalls with Atomic’s new Exo Profile, a 3D profile designed to reduce swing weight and overall ski weight. The Vantage X 83 CTI, at 83-mm underfoot, is the widest of the Vantage X family. Highest tester scores resulted in a tie for versatility and carving, lowest scores came in for stability. “There’s tip chatter at speed, but the ski carved smooth, consistent turn shapes on groomers, in crud and on the side of the trails,” says Witman.
