The Atomic Maven 86 C Skis are a nimble and versatile front-side tool aimed at improving all mountain performance (read, not perfect groomers). Whereas Austrians love to don the Spandex and see what kind of edge angles they can generate, North American skiers tend to go all over the place, whether it be steep bumps, tight trees, or fresh powder. If you're the kind of skier who revels in the full range of mountain conditions the Atomic Maven 86 C Skis will suit you just fine.
Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Tail type: Flat
Rocker Type: All Mountain Rocker – 20% Tip Rocker / 70% Camber / 10% Tail Rocker
Shape: Directional - Flow Profile – Atomic's new shaping philosophy incorporates tighter sidecut radii, a bit more tip rocker, HRZN Tech 3D tips, and a subtle amount of camber - all aimed at making the Maverick and Maven skis the kings and queens of North American all-mountain skiing. HRZN Tech Tip – HRZN Tech adds 10% more surface area at your ski tips. For awesome flotation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop.
Core: OMatic Construction – The ultimate balance of stiffness and flex throughout the length of the ski. Precision milled poplar wood, lightweight fiberglass, and titanal layer or carbon insets. OMatic delivers effortless performance, balance, and stability from tip to tail. Light Woodcore – Made from poplar wood, this core optimizes the ski's weight without sacrificing any shock absorption or stability.
Laminates: Carbon Backbone – An ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold with no extra weight.
Sidewalls: Dura Cap Sidewall – Sidewall for power transmission combined with a small cap for durability.
Binding Compatibility: We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
