Atomic Cloud 12 + X12 LTL 2019

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The Cloud 12 from Atomic offers amazing performance but falls short when it comes to versatility and accessibility.

The ski is extremely happy at high speed, carving smooth long arcs, its area of predilection, where the ski is incredibly grippy and stable and riders can fearlessly adopt serious angles to carve momentous long turns. The Cloud 12 is an excellent ski for making swooping arcs on the piste at high speed.

On the other hand, once out of its favourite programme, it becomes more demanding. It's difficult to vary the radius, is not very forgiving, is less stable and more difficult to bend at slow speed.

The Cloud 12 is too exclusive for this category where we're looking above all for consistency, but experienced speed freaks and long turn fans will love it.

Review: Pros

  • Great performance
  • Stable at high speed
  • Loves long turns
  • Excellent carving
  • Fast
  • Grippy

Review: Cons

  • Lacks accessibility and tolerance at slower speeds
  • Difficult to vary turn radius
