We had the opportunity to test this ski early last February, and were immediately impressed by it's ability to provide phenomenal kick without compromising on glide. Atomic has achieved this with the use of a plate that runs the length of the ski's kick pocket. This plate is made of a very supple material called “ABS”, and is also featured in Atomic's extremely popular “Skintec” waxless classic race ski. The World Cup SDS has a relatively low camber, and the plate keeps the skiers weight lifted off the snow while gliding yet allows for an easy compression during the kick phase. If you are looking for a new classic ski this winter, we highly recommend this one.
The Atomic WC Skate and Classic boots have been entirely redeveloped for the 2012-2013 season. The boots feature a new full 3D carbon chassis and carbon cuff that improves lateral stiffness over previous models. A new wrapping lace system secures the foot and provides a very snug fit. If you like the Salomon system and find the S-Lab boot too narrow, this is the boot for you.
The new X-ium boot is 50 grams lighter than it's predecessor with a new 100% carbon fiber cuff, and new extremely low profile sole that brings your foot closer to the ski for improved control & responsiveness. This boot is also features asymmetrical lacing to keep your foot snug and secure, and is thermo-moldable for a fully customized fit.
Now built on the same last as the award winning carbonlite skate, this is by far the most comfortable classic boot Fischer has ever produced. This boot also features a new form-fitting upper, with a bold, fast graphic. This boot is available in both a men's and women's specific design.
