Atomic Pimp Skis 2009

Atomic Pimp Skis 2009

My favourite amongst the Atomic freestyle range – this is a ski you can use for “Free-skiing” as much as for pure freestyle moves. With a 103 waist they are not too large that they feel unwieldy and you can use them happily on softer and variable terrain as a real hack ski to nail pretty much any run on any degree of steepness.

With every feature you would imagine of a top-end ski, the wood-core feels solid but the mix with the “Kinetic Core” which is a lightened tip and tail made with “Space Age materials”…….hmmmm! So the ski is well balanced and not as heavy as they could be, so it’ll keep the “spinners” happy. On the profile, the 30-32 m radius is skiable and stable but also offers a skiddable, slideable and stompable to boot.

Great for high-speed hacking or more spinning finesse if thats your bag.

An excellent backcountry freestyle/free-ski package with a stomping wood-core.

The manufacturer says this about the Atomic Pimp Skis 2009:

With a solid 103mm waist width and a powerful 31m turn radius the Pimp is built to charge. Period. A team favourite, you can find this ski deep in the backcountry dropping cliffs or stomping huge 7’s in the Park. Grab a pair today and put the ladies on notice.
