Everyone is always looking for that 1 ski quiver, and the atomic coax isn't far from it. So far I haven't been able to find conditions where this ski doesn't fit. Atomics history of racing shows through when it comes to groomers and hardpack/icy conditions. These ski once on edge will lock in and rail around, with no chatter and no signs of hitting the limits at full out speeds. The stiff tip and tail seems to cut through ruts, crud and generally just about everything with no problems at all. The one place they do have a bit of an issue is in hard bumps, as you get tossed around a little more then I'd like. The midfat dimmensions give you great float in soft snow, though the stiff tip does mean you have to shift back a little to keep from diving if its really deep. All in all these skis like to charge, but will show you who's boss if you get too lazy on them.
My only issue is that when Mounted with recommended Atomic FFG bindings makes for a very heavy setup
Incredible edge hold at high speed on hard conditions
Clear topsheet over wood core with sweet graphics native/smoke style graphics
Incredibly stiff flex for a ski of these dimensions
Ultra durable construction, including extra thick edges, and metal tip and tail base protectors
