Tamer and more forgiving than the almost “beefy” Crimson Ti’s the Crimson standard is a lovely all-rounder packing a lively punch on firm snow, not necessarily the icy stuff -although you still can retain plenty of control – but on softer, variable snow the Crimnson is a lovely pair of skis.
Retaining the 86 mm waist of the Crimson Ti this ski is very happy when you see deeper snow and will help many a recreational skier to tackle the powder. On piste there is good grip in short skidded turns and when you begin to open up the radius the Crimson carves nicely – certainly apt enough for any intermediate skier and probably very well suited to the majority of advanced skiers.
Very well priced, with a new, sleeker and lighter binding package the Crimson 2009 looks like a great buy for the adventurous intermediate or advanced skier.
The manufacturer says this about the Atomic Nomad Crimson Skis 2009:
This winter’s Crimson “must have.” This very light, high quality all-mountain ski is the top model in the Nomad series (?) Six TFC sectors in the tip and four in the tail of the ski ensure a soft flex, while the reinforcement built with nano-technology positioned in the middle of the ski between the TFC sectors provides the necessary torsional rigidity. Dynamic, stable and with optimal edge grip. The technical highlight for all demanding ski nomads.
