Atomic Redster S9 + X12 TL 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Redster S9 is objectively a good ski, remarkably consistent and versatile. The reviewers liked the ski's easy handling, the overall enjoyment, and the very consistent behaviour that will reassure a lot of riders. It's especially comfortable and intuitive when carving out short turns.
On the other hand, the reviewers noted a slight lack of punch in very dynamic rides at high speed which showed the ski's limitations. The ski is globally efficient, but stiffness, edge grip and rebound at the end of a turn are not as good as some of its rivals.
The ski's programme is similar to the "Carvers" category, which the reviewers felt the ski would have done very well in. Something to think about for the next review.
The Redster S9 is a very good ski that we recommend especially for intermediary to very good riders who want to up their carving performance.
- Easy to use
- Very consistent
- Good behaviour carving small turns
- Comfortable overall
- Good rotation
- A flexible ski for this programme
- Slight lack of performance

Who's it for?
With the Servotec technology guaranteeing extra dexterity in tight turns, the Atomic Redster S9 has been designed for slalom competitions or short turns on the groomed runs.
The Servotec technology maximizes agility for ultra-fast switching and maximum stability at high speed.
Reduced sidecuts are synonymous with maximum stability at high speed, but thanks to the Servotec technology, you have the impression of riding a ski with a more pronounced profile.
The full sidewall construction runs the whole length of the ski for more precise turns.
