Atomic’s Vantage W series houses three models—90 CTi, 95 C W and 85 W. AT 90-mm underfoot, the 90 CTi has several technology stories, including Atomic’s Carbon Tank Mesh, a layer of woven carbon mesh used for its high strength-to-weight ratio, and Titanium Backbone 2.0, a new iteration of Atomic’s spine-shaped titanium insert that runs the length of the ski. “This Atomic’s happy place is crud,” says Riley of the 90 CTi W. “It’s a confidence builder, not a quick turner, but a solid and stable carver on or off piste.”
