INSIDE ATOMIC SKIS
Servotec is our radical innovation for racing and high-performance piste skiing. The name comes from ‘Servolenkung’ because that’s what it is – the first power steering for skis! The secret is the Servotec rod on the top of the ski and the elastomer just under the binding:
The rod is under tension, meaning the elastomer connected to it is compressed. The whole ski is therefore in a pre-stressed position – essentially ready to turn.
As the ski bends into a turn, the compression in the elastomer is relaxed. It rebounds out like a spring, pulling the rod with it and actively supporting the flex of the ski. This makes steering lighter and quicker.
Then on fast straights the rod and elastomer dampen out bumps and ruts in the slope and even swallow up negative swings. This keeps your steering firmer and more stable when skiing straight at high speeds.
At the core of every ski are the materials – and particularly the different types of wood – that determine how it behaves.
Ultra Power Woodcore
Made from strong beech and lightweight poplar – for supreme running stability and agility in our racing skis.
A sporty, dynamic ash and poplar woodcore that adds a ton of stability and dampens vibrations at speed.
Made from Poplar wood, this core optimizes the ski’s weight without sacrificing any shock absorption or stability.
Ultra Light Woodcore
The poplar and caruba woodcore for skis that are all about low weight, like our touring skis.
A foam core that’s agile and dampens vibrations – for effortless skiing.
Around the main core are the materials that fine-tune the performance of a ski.
CARBON TANK MESH
Sidewalls affect how the ski dampens impacts and transmits power. We use four different types to suit different types of snow and skiing.
