Sexy looking pair of sporty intermediate to advanced skis for the fashion conscious female. Packed with Atomic know-how this is a strong pair of carvers but well-tempered and there are no surprises if kept on the groomed runs. With a wide waist, 74 mm, this is no slalom ski but they can lay down some nice short-radius carves and also don’t mind a turn of speed in medium radii. A sexy, sporty groomed run all-rounder for a girl looking for a touch more bling on the eye and on her feet.
