Fantastic fun. I really love the Sl 12’s, they are lively without being unruly, powerful without being too domineering, in fact they are relatively easy to dominate for expert skiers and don’t demand the same amount of respect as a race pair of FIS skis. So great fun! Perfect for ski instructors, advanced skiers looking for the next level or an expert skier who loves short turns. Sensitive, grippy, flexible, perfect flex, they turn on a dime and stunning performance. Superb.
* for racing purposes there is at least one specific FIS regulated version Atomic slalom ski available.

Nothing adverse to say about a great pair of all-round slalom skis.
The manufacturer says this about the Atomic Race SL 12 pb Skis 2009:
The top slalom racing ski. Dynamic, manoeuvrable, responsive, full of power. With perfect edge grip and explosive power to the edge transmission for the most direct skiing line. The 3D Power Channels, Magnesium Power Rods, flexible Power Bridge and Double Torsion bars give it the highest torsion resistance and optimised flex characteristics. A ski that has been created for the top of the podium only.
