The Crimson is Atomic’s new all-mountain go-to ski, and it emphasizes off-piste performance. It’s playful in soft snow—until it’s on edge, when it rails like a race ski.

Props

Drive hard into turns and the Crimson responds with energy and great edge hold.

Gripes

Some felt it skied short—probably due to the soft shovel and mushy turn initiation.

Tester's Take
