If you are the type who wants that precision performance on the groomed terrain, a great bet is the Atomic Vantage 90 TI. Slightly more tuned for on-piste skiing and harder snow, compared to some of it's wider kin, the Vantage 90 TI is loaded up with a highly-tuned shape, in a highly versatile waist width, and all-mountain capability with minimal loss of in-bounds chops.
The entire package is built in using Atomic's industry-exclusive Prolite construction. Revolutionary and remarkably lightweight, it adds reinforcements only where needed, keeping the weight low- yet performance impressively unaffected. Atomic's Energy Backbone is possibly the most unique aspect of the construction where the chops of the ski flex is built up where it's needed most, underfoot and along the ski edge, but not where it hinders by adding excess weight.
The strength of the Vantage 90 TI comes courtesy of the Titanium Tank Mesh- a custom cut metal reinforcement incorporated to damp out excess vibrations, but not deaden the on-snow feel. The Full Sidewall and Power Woodcore only add to the Vantage 90 TI's stability.
Carbon Alloy Matrix is a totally new super fiber engineered into the ski at Rossignol. Rossi's exclusive Basalt infused fibers are woven diagonally with heavy strands of Carbon Graphite. The result is even better edge grip and even more stability, while at the same time, the E88 HD remains very easy to ski on, and maintains its playful feel on the snow. This new construction truly amplifies the ski into HD!
Air Tip is a Rossignol exclusive feature that removes mass at the very end of the ski. This concentrates more of the ski's mass underfoot, and reduces swing weight for improved maneuverability and effortless flotation in deeper snow.
Auto Turn Rocker - A profile with 70% standard camber in the center of the ski and 30% rocker at the tip and tail. The high underfoot camber delivers secure grip for on-piste performance. The slight tip and tail rocker gives a power-assisted steering effect with effortless control, as well as excellent versatility in powder and on the piste. Rocker helps wider skis turn like narrower skis.
Basalt Dampening - Natural volcanic basalt rock, spun into fibers and woven into the layup of the ski to absorb vibration for a smooth, stable ride without making the ski feel dead or heavy. Still very lively, but very, very smooth at speed.
Laminate wood core - The best way to build a ski. Wood absorbs vibration better than any other material, and is super durable as well. As skis get wider, twisting stiffness tends to get softer, so wide skis don't hold as well on harder snow. Wood cores are torsionally (twisting) stiffer.
