Atomic’s new Cloud 12 is as close to a GS race ski as any Technical ski ever adapted for women. The ski's straighter sidecut gives it one of the longer radius turns in the Technical genre of skis, but it’s so calm at high speeds, there’s no reason to pump the brakes.

Cloud 12's extraordinary stability comes courtesy of Servotec, a single rod that sucks up shocks and actively pressures the fully cambered ski to stay in contact with the snow. Said one tester: “Atomic claims Servotec is like power steering—and that’s not hyperbole.”
