The Atomic Blackeye is a fantastic ski for the beginners to intermediates that want stability and solid edge hold on the snow. Atomic's ARC Technology uses a single mounting position on the center of the ski. One mounting point allows the ski to bend and flex naturally when it is engaged into a turn, more consistent edge contact and pressure on the snow. The All Mountain Rocker has the front 15% of the ski with rocker for easy turn initiation. The Blackeye has a Titanium Stabilizer that has a single layer of titanium that sits underneath the wood core that improves shock absorption and increases the torsional strength to give you smooth skiing at faster speeds and variable conditions. Atomic's Stepdown Sidewall 2.0 uses a cap construction in the tips and tails that improve maneuverability, and a vertical sidewall underfoot that holds a better edge on the icy or firmer snow. The 81mm waist of the Blackeye is wide enough to be supportive in tricky conditions, but not too wide that it can become cumbersome for the beginner to manage while allowing you to improve your technique and skills. If you want a smooth skiing ski that is loaded with technology to get you to the next level, the Atomic Blackeye is the ski for you.
Evan here. Just got off the Atomic Blackeye. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's going to be great for your beginner to intermediate skier really just doing frontside skiing. Good all-around feel though. 4 out of 5.
Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Atomic Blackeye. The Atomic Blackeye is for the skier that's buying his first pair of skis. Comes off rentals. Ski turns real easy. On higher speed it will definitely be a little bit shaky so it's not designed for somebody that skis aggressive. You want to slide a turn at the end of the day it will allow you to do that but it's really nice on short turn radius. I give this ski a 3 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Josh. I just got done riding the Blackeye by Atomic. I give this ski 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's an awesome ski for that advanced beginner to intermediate skier who is looking to progress and really hone their skills. Very stable in long turns, handled short turns and medium turns fairly well. Moves good in the frontside. Definitely a frontside-oriented carving ski. And, again, for that kind of advanced beginner to intermediate skier looking to improve, 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Hey, this is Lucas and I just got off the Atomic Nomad Blackeye. This is a fun little ski to ride. I'd suggest to for a beginner to intermediate level so I placed it at about a 4 out of 5 stars for me. Pretty fun on the longer turns because I tried to give it more like really, really tight turns. It didn't respond as quick as I would've liked but otherwise it held up great for me. Pretty forgiving ski with just a little bit of tip rocker so if you find yourself in deeper snow it could hang out for ya. Again, 4 out of 5 stars.
Hi, I'm Ryan. I just got off the Atomic Blackeye ARC. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a good intermediate level ski for someone who wants to make quick snappy turns or long, drawn-out arcs. The all-mountain rocker on it makes it really easy to initiate a turn and it would be great for an intermediate level skier.
Hi, I'm Andy and this is the Atomic Nomad Blackeye ARC. I gave this ski 4 out of 5 stars. This ski is for the beginning to intermediate skier looking to up their skills. It's a frontside ski. It holds an edge very well. Very easy to engage into turns and it will keep up with increasing speeds. Overall, I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.
