INSIDE ATOMIC NORDIC SKIS
SKINTEC - Ready when you are
We offer a full range of Skintec skis giving you excellent kick and exceptional glide.
With our Skintec Technology you are saving time - there is no need to study up on kick-waxing professionally. All our Skintec skis offer the same advantages: Step-Down-Sidewall (SDS), 100% Mohair and our Easy Skin Exchange technology.
EASY SKIN EXCHANGE
Easy Skin Exchange allows you to exchange skins by yourself on the spot to adapt to terrain and snow conditions. You can switch between a universal skin for everyday use and different speed skins for even higher performance. Both types are made from the highest-quality Mohair.
SKINTEC SDS TECHNOLOGY
The Step-Down-Sidewall (SDS) camber construction keeps the kick zone high in the glide phase for no friction, but easy to compress during the kick.
DIGITAL SKI PAIRING - Made to Measure
Every ski is measured in the factory, matched to a perfect pair and then stickered with its exact weight corridor.
Your skis don’t just need to match your body weight - they also need to match each other. We’ve developed a digital software that can assess 15 different tolerance parameters to match a left and right ski perfectly for a stronger, better-balanced performance.
CARBON RACE MONOCOQUE
This is the special ski construction that gives our top Classic and Skate Race skis that extra bit of power. In our Redster Carbon Classic, the carbon chassis runs the length of the ski (except the tip), making it very light and dynamic for extreme acceleration. In the Redster Carbon S9 the carbon chassis runs the whole length of the ski, making the ski lighter and stronger, offering more direct power transmission for fast, dynamic gliding.
At the core of every ski are the materials that determine how it behaves. We use two different core materials in our range:
An ultra-lightweight material originally used in aerospace. It’s structured like a honeycomb for strength, resilience and liveliness.
Featherlight, Featherlight SDS, Lite, Lite SDS
Light, stable and tough. Densolite is produced in Atomic’s own facilities and comes in different variations. They’re all equally tough, but some versions are lighter and more dynamic.
Speedcell, Helium Densolite, Ultra High Densolite, High Densolite, Densolite
Placed right underneath the core, laminates contribute towards the rebound and power transmission of a ski. In our skis we use two different types of laminates:
The carbon laminate ensures power transmission in our top models like the Redster C9 Skintec. Besides high performance, the super light carbon material adds stability to the ski.
The fiberglass laminate is responsible for a strong, but easy kick in our skis and makes them forgiving for errors on the tracks - the perfect material for our Pro models like the Pro C2 Skintec.
We use two different kinds of high-quality bases for optimal glide performance.
Redster race models feature our high-end sintered bases, which are able to hold more wax and perform longer. Special glide additives make them extremely fast.
BI 5000 SA = Sintered Worldcup base
BI 5000 = Sintered Worldcup base
BI 4000 SA = Sintered base
BI 4000 = Sintered Base
Base Extruded bases excel through easy handling and reliance – they will perform well without needing an expert to prepare them.
BI 3000 = Extruded Base
BI 2000 = Extruded Base
BI 1500 = Extruded Base
Grip technology provides grip in the kick zone without the need for kick wax. We have three different Grip types:
Our high-performance waxless technology with 100% Mohair skin grip zones, featured across the range.
A versatile grip technology with a hot stamped no-wax pattern.
A no-wax pattern milled in the ski base, ideal for newcomers to the classic track.
Putting a sidewall on a cross-country ski helps with steering and power transmission. We have two different sidewalls that feature on our skis:
STEP-DOWN-SIDEWALL (SDS) TECHNOLOGY
The SDS sidewall construction combines Densolite or lightwood materials with an ABS insert, which keeps the kick zone high in the glide phase for no friction, but easy to compress during the kick. We use the SDS Technology in our classic ski range.
LIGHTWEIGHT WOOD SIDEWALL
This sidewall construction features lightweight wood for the perfect combination between stability and power transmission. Lightweight Wood Sidewalls are used in the skate ski range.
