As versatile all mountain skis go few work for as broad of a range as the Affinity Pure can. With mellow flex but strong edge hold, because of the Step Down Sidewall construction, the Affinity Pure is forgiving enough for athletic beginners to hop on but has enough support to handle strong intermediate skiers as well. Since it comes in sizes down to 142cm it also works great for teens and juniors that have outgrown kids gear and need something that can take them all over the mountain. Based on a 79mm waist the Affinity Pure is the perfect ski for anyone who really wants to start spending some time exploring the mountain as it will float in light chop and soft snow but is still narrow enough to be easy going on hard packed snow. The Adaptive Rocker profile also helps provide the great all mountain feel of the Pure. By adding the slight tip rise the Affinity Pure has an effortless turn initiation both on and off piste with added float in chop and crud so the tip won't hang up or feel hooky when the snow pack becomes inconsistent. So if you are just starting out and have big ambition or are just looking to be able to experience more terrain with confidence the Affinity Pure is here to help you out.

Hi, this is Kathleen. With the Atomic Affinity Pure I skied it in 154 it is a great ski for short turns. It has a traditional camber, so you've got to work it just a little bit harder than some of the others. It had a nice pop to it, it was fairly stable but not quite as stable as I would have liked. It was a little bit grippy, but it rolled over fairly nice and hard. But really once it got on edge it really held edge quite nice. Overall though I give this a four out of five.
Hi, I'm Annie. I just rode the Atomic Pure 160. Its a very forgiving ski had a really nice long carve. I give this one a five out of five. I could initiate quick turns, jump right back and forth. Good firm stable ski, I would recommend this for any intermediate advanced skier.
Hi, I'm Lynn. I just skied the Atomic Pure. This is a 160cm ski, it has a 12.5 m turn radius. It's designed for an intermediate to advanced skier. It's an all mountain series ski, it has a rocker on it. I put it through its paces, I stomped on it and it held, it gave me some real nice response. At the long turns, long cruisers it held well even though it was a shorter radius turn ski. I found that it could do anything I asked it to do on any type of terrain. I really enjoyed the ride on this ski I think you would also. I give it five stars.
