Atomic World Cup Opening. The World Cup got off to a successful start for Atomic in Sölden: In a repeat of last year's results, Kathrin Zettel claimed second place in the first race of the new season, with World Cup winner Marcel Hirscher once again taking third. "Sölden feels", he commented, "it's a bit like studying for an exam at school: You prepare, but you don't quite know where you stand. Not until after the race. That's why I'm so pleased with this third place. It shows that we're on the right track."
Since last winter, the Marcel Hirscher Icon Series has been cult. Every fan wants to ski with the double World Ski Champion's original design and original technologies, but the equipment, which Marcel has designed himself, is strictly limited edition.
Whether piste, powder, park or backcountry, amateur racer or recreational skier, young or old, Atomic has the right equipment for everyone. Here is an overview of the highlights.
The new Atomic all mountain series makes skiing feel more natural than ever before. The secret is the revolutionary ARC technology which is now integrated in every Nomad and Nomad [S] ski. For the first time, this allows the ski to flex evenly along its entire length. Resulting in greater flow, ultimate traction and a whole new level of feeling for the piste.
Backcountry touring really can be this intensive and enjoyable: the new Atomic Waymaker Tour touring ski boot takes freedom to a whole new dimension.
Jossi Wells approached Atomic with an idea: bring together a group of skiers with different styles, different perspectives on skiing and show them creating something new. This initial idea blossomed into something bigger, something that transcended the typical discussion about progression and brought skiing back to its roots. From this conversation the infamous was born…
Welcome to the premier league: the Atomic Race collection combines the spirit of 50 years of World Cup domination with the technologies of tomorrow – giving every skier the opportunity to create a set-up tailored entirely to their individual preferences.
Live Fit makes ski boots from Atomic among the most comfortable on the market. This sophisticated technology is now also available on helmets and ski goggles, setting new standards in terms of fit and comfort on the Revel ski goggles and Mentor all-mountain helmet.
The most radical freeride adventures, the best jibs in the park and perfect basis for Olympic medals: our new Atomic Freeski collection offers even more flow and fun. You too can take advantage of the equipment used by freeski pros.
From the toughest race stresses and dynamic on-piste turns to playful powder turns, laid-back tricks in the park and backcountry adventures: only the right ski boot makes for the perfect day's skiing. That's why you'll find just the boot for you in our new boot collection.
Piste Rocker, All Mountain Rocker or Powder Rocker? If a skier knows the type of terrain he wants to ski on, then he automatically knows which type of Atomic Rocker he needs.
The new World Cup Skate FL Soft Track is the perfect cross-country ski for soft to mixed conditions. It gave Dominik Landertinger, third in the overall standings at the Biathlon World Cup 12/13, an advantage. Now it's your turn.
With the Boa Lacing system, the new Atomic Race Skate introduces the most effective lacing system to cross-country skiing. Because this boot sits so precisely and is so easy to use, more and more amateur racers are switching to the new lacing system.
The innovative Atomic Skintec is the first high-performance waxless ski worthy of the name. It combines super-easy handling and top performance. Both professionals and amateurs are therefore enthusing about this cross-country ski.
Atomic athlete Kilian Jornet was able to finish a successful winter ski mountaineering season with second place in the Trofeo Mezzalama (Ita).

Just three days after her 18th birthday...

Double world champion and silver medalist at the home WSC in Schladming. 23 races, 21 podium results. The phenomenon of Marcel’s successes, his huge effort for three-quarters of an hour of extreme racing...
“My batteries are fully charged,“ Marcel Hirscher said. Charged with the medals won in Schladming: gold in slalom and the team event, vice champion in giant slalom. And with precious crystal: in Kranjska Gora the world champion proved to be the steadiest slalom racer of the 2012/13 season and made himself the winner of the one “glass cup“ that had not been in his glass cabinet yet. 18 World Cup races, 16 podium results and leader of the overall World Cup, 149 points ahead: Marcel is trying his best to finish this season as the overall World Cup winner again.

Schladming. Gold in the team event, silver in the giant slalom, slalom world champion: Marcel Hirscher was able to turn the most difficult task of his career so far into a chapter of enthusiastic ski history. The World Ski Championships 2013 in Schladming ended with his world champion title as a Hirscher heroic epic. “I was told: To win gold at home championships – that is something only the really big athletes achieve.“ This was Marcel’s first comment on his victory. How true! “There is a new slalom world champion every other year. Bu there has never been one before that won on skis developed by himself,“ Marcel said happily.
Schladming. Mikaela Shiffrin and Michaela Kirchgasser: The Redster ladies turned the ladies’ slalom into one of the most emotional competitions of these world ski championships.

There’s one important thing the overall World Cup winner has to say, “One of the great truths in skiing – and it applies to me and anyone else: skiing is a question of the right boots.“ Marcel’s boot t(r)ick: There are about 30 pairs of Redster boots for all kinds of weather and snow conditions.
