For piste, park or powder, beginner or expert: ATOMIC has developed a range of tailor-made equipment designed to meet the needs of every female skier. The 2011-12 season sees the launch of the most stunning women's collection ATOMIC has ever put together, featuring new designs and innovative technologies.
Sage Cattabriga-Alosa is one of the best freeskiers on the planet. He has been wowing fans for the last nine years with his stand out movie segments in Teton Gravity Research films. The very fact that he bypassed the normal pro-path of gaining a name on the competition circuit or working with smaller freeski filmmakers, and instead went from a total unknown to one of the star regulars in the biggest ski productions speaks volumes for his talent. Last year he decided to try his hand at a bit of competition as well, and immediately found himself at the top of the result sheets. It seems there is literally nothing Sage cannot do with his trusty ATOMIC Bent Chetlers and some steep terrain.
Tested by the world's best athletes and deemed as outstanding: the 2011-12 ATOMIC Race collection puts the World Cup technologies developed by the most successful brand in Alpine ski sport in the hands of performance-driven skiers.
The ideal shape for maximum fun on the slopes: ATOMIC's tailor-made Rocker philosophies.
Skis, boots, bindings and safety gear from ATOMIC: for the 2011-12 season ATOMIC has a range of tailor-made equipment for freeskiers which promises to deliver even more fun in park and powder – tested and embraced by Jossi Wells, Chris Benchetler and Daron Rahlves.
Whether racing, performing Park and Pipe tricks, embarking on backcountry adventures or facing the varied challenges of the slopes: ATOMIC's ski boots are designed to meet the needs of every type of skier.
This coming season ATOMIC is offering all-mountain skiers a range of tailor-made, all-inclusive solutions for even greater pleasure and even better performance. What's on offer: new models and pioneering innovations guaranteed to make every skier a better skier in 2011-12.
By continually developing its innovative Doubledeck technology, ATOMIC has once again managed to combine all-round performance with easy handling for the upcoming season. Because Doubledeck skis respond instantly to the individual style of the skier as well as the relevant skiing conditions. The lower adapter deck also adapts to the slope, while the upper control deck distributes power effectively. Five connecting pieces made of elastomers between the upper deck and the lower deck ensure active suspension and very smooth skiing. Which allows for more efficient skiing and effortless ski control.
It was love at first sight. 11 years ago, 13-year-old Carlo Janka (now 24) used ATOMIC skis for the first time and right away, he was triple canton champion. This was followed by a World Championship title, Olympic gold and the overall World Cup victory. The „iceman“ is burning for his 12th ATOMIC season. The preparations are going as well as hardly ever before. The Swiss young star and his ATOMIC serviceman Stefan Viehhauser are getting ready.
Red Racers. While others are still whining about the new FIS regulations concerning sidecuts, ATOMIC has already started developing material for the world championships season 2012/2013. The first prototypes should be tested during future overseas snow trainings of some ATOMIC athletes in the next weeks.
Why waxing is now old hat; how racers can adapt even better to changing snow conditions; and why ATOMIC designs tailor-made core constructions for each different target group: a look ahead to what promises to be the most successful and enjoyable cross-country season ever.
ATOMIC's helmets and protectors combine ultimate protection with maximum comfort – because they are designed by skiers for skiers and are specifically developed to meet skiers' needs.
ATOMIC's revolutionary Skintec grip technology comprises two interchangeable skin inlays for cross-country skiers. These grip modules can be inserted into or removed from the grip zone in one easy motion. Making the unique Skintec system a hugely effective time-saving device, because a classic ski can be transformed for use in all conditions without the need for waxing. Never before have cross-country skiers been able to use the narrow windows between family and work so effectively.
It's never been easier to ski with such excellence: across every category ATOMIC skis dominate the comparison tests of renowned specialist publications, racking up one commendation after another. An overview.
From the beginners' ski for playing in the snow to the Bent Chetler Mini and the junior Benni Raich-style racer: ATOMIC provides kids with the perfect gear for many a carefree hour in the snow – while helping them to make rapid progress in the pipe or on the piste.
More and more skiers are discovering a passion for ski touring as they seek out new physical challenges and outdoor sporting experiences. Which is why ATOMIC has developed a range of skis, boots and equipment for the 2011-12 season which promises to make the climb just as enjoyable as the descent.
ATOMIC's new Worldcup Classic and Worldcup Skate are two of the lightest skis ever to compete in the Nordic World Cup. These premium models are revolutionary in terms of their ultra-lightweight and boast high torsional rigidity as well as dynamic longitudinal flex for explosive power transmission. And it's all thanks to the Featherlight construction.
Jest pewien powód dla którego złoci medaliści Igrzysk Olimpijskich, początkujący, narciarze amatorzy oraz poszukiwacze przygód zaufali produktom Atomic: każdy narciarz może liczyć na indywidualnie dopasowany sprzęt, który spełni wszystkie jego potrzeby - od nart, do gogli, od butów narciarskich po ochraniacze pleców.
Phase two. ATOMIC biathlon star christoph sumann (35) is now starting to intensify his training. At the same time a new generation of world cup skis with the revolutionary featherlight technique is being produced at the atomic factory. Sumann, “I am fully concentrating on the training. And the whole ATOMIC team is completley involved in making sure we’ll enter the cross-country ski run with the best material.“
Final cut. 2000 pairs of cross-country skis, 2000 bindings, 500 pairs of boots – besides the regular summer production, the production for the nordic unit has been speeded up at the ATOMIC factory. The coat of the featherlight construction receives one of 15 surface patterns by a special machine using rough diamonds. The diamond finishing for a saison with biathlon world championships, tour de ski and the legendary wasa race as highlights for the nordic ATOMIC crew!
Released in fall, a spectacular 52-minute documentary reveals the incredible lives of probably the most ski-obsessed family in the world. "Most people will only know us from competitions, now they can see what we're really like," says Jossi Wells.
