The Redster G9 from Atomic is definitely one of the best skis on the market in the "Giant Slalom" category of race-inspired skis designed for a non-racing public.
"Consistent and reassuring", almost "perfect", it shines in this category in virtually every respect. The professional reviewers noted in particular its "very reassuring" character, with incisive turn entry and amazing stability at high speed. Efficient and docile, you'll feel really confident whatever the conditions.

Atomic has made a real comeback this season. The Redster TR presented by the brand offers an alternative that focuses more on accessibility in this “Carvers” section.

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.
