Precise control, direct power transmission: The SNS binding system from Atomic
It doesn't matter if you're a pro or an amateur: performing to the max depends on the perfect connection between the boot and ski. Which is why Atomic favors SNS Underfoot Technology – a binding system designed to benefit skiers of all levels of ability.
For skaters the Atomic range includes Pilot bindings, where the boot is attached to the binding by two axes in the toe and forefoot area. Extreme stability, direct power transmission and precise control are the hallmarks of these bindings. The premium model is the Pilot Race Skate – the personal favorite of long-distance skier Simen Østensen of Team Xtra personell.
For racers and athletic classic skiers Atomic offers the Propulse bindings, where the boot is attached to the binding via a single rearset axis. It allows for a natural rolling movement of the foot even at high speeds and ensures a precise kick. Thanks to the ultra-low construction of the 242 g Propulse RC binding, maximum power is transferred to the ski.
Long-distance specialist Anders Aukland demonstrated last winter the amazing speeds which can be achieved with the Propulse: this is the binding which helped him win the Ski Classics series 2012.
For leisure skiers who place a premium on maximum stability, Atomic offers the double-axis Touring Pilot bindings. For skiers looking for greater maneuverability, the single-axis Profil bindings are ideal. Why? Because these bindings allow for a natural rolling movement of the foot even at lower speeds, which makes skiing easier and more comfortable.
