The Atomic Vantage 90 CTI W is a great ski for the advanced to expert skier that want a ski that can be the perfect ski for any day on the mountain. The 90mm waist is very easy to carve with, has the width to charge through variable snow or bumps, and float in deep powder. Made with Atomic's new Carbon Tank Mesh, the Vantage 90 CTI has a woven structure that sits on top of the core that boots the torsional strength and power of the ski without increasing any extra weight of the ski. A Titanium Backbone 2.0 runs the entire length of the ski to improve power and stability when you reach fast speeds, and it delivers rebound with each turn. The Vantage 90 is fully equipped with the new Firewall Sidewalls that are thicker underneath the binding platform that provide you with a stronger energy transfer, and flex groves enable the ski to have a very even flex pattern to it. All Mountain Rocker has rocker in the tips and tails with camber underfoot that keep the ski on top of the fresh snow, improve mobility, and still have a strong edge grip. Atomic's Light Wood Core is made from Poplar Wood that is very light, but maintains stability and a snappy feeling to the ski. If you are looking for an all mountain ski that will be stable at fast speeds when carving, and have the ability to charge in off trail conditions, the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI W will be a great selection for you.
Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI. I give this ski a 3.5 out of 5 star rating. I thought it was pretty good for a little bit wider ski. It did well at variable turn sizes and turn shapes so short and long radius turns. I thought it would have held up and performed a little bit better on variable snow conditions at that little bit higher speed that I pushed it to so I think for an intermediate skier looking for a little bit wider option, this might be a really good choice. For the expert level skier that's really going to want to push it and get a little bit more out of this ski, this might not be the best option for you so 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Hi, I'm Linda. I just finished skiing the Vantage 90 by Atomic. I give this ski a 5 out of 5. Very fun, all-mountain expert ski. Even in an intermediate-advanced, it'll actually get you over that. It edges well. It's stable. The tip is going to wobble a little but if you don't look at, you'll just be able to set it on edge and go. Nice. Very easy to ski under at speed too. 5 out of 5.
Q: I'm 5'6", 165lbs, ski instructor in the East. I ski an Atomic Storm 153cm ski now but am wondering if the next length up would better suit my style. I love to ski really fast, but am also working on slowing down to improving my bump skiing and I need to dodge in and out of the glades on occasion. Any advice.
A: Based on your weight, ability, terrain selection, and presumed technical skills the 161cm Vantage 90 CTi would make a nice selection for you. The wider footprint and rocker profile will give you extra stability and control in the bumps and trees.
